Manip Academy 13: How to make glowing things
 Hello everybody! Today I'm going to show you how to make glowing things. Light is very important in making photomanipulations, so techniques you will know will be useful. Make base for your glow Start from making base at new layer, change blending mode to Color dodge. You can use shape brush (here, dragonflies or stars or anything), or normal soft round brush. Then, duplicate it and change blending mode to Linear dodge (Add). After, for better effect draw with big soft round brush dot over your thing and use Color dodge blending mode. You can duplicate layer with glow or layer with glow and base for better effect. Light around It's impo

Happy Halloween everyone! I was supposed to write about shadows for the Manip Academy, but the subject had already been covered by another artist, but no worries, I had a plan B! ;) This is a tutorial to create an illuminated window. You will require basic knowledge of Photoshop. Note that this is my first tutorial ever, so it's not perfect. I hope this tutorial will be helpful to you. -Dan

Introducing a new project!


Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.

Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.

This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.


How you can help


Everyone is encouraged to get involved with sharing knowledge. It would be great if you could write a journal over at CRPhotomanipulation and/or at we-HEART-photomanip, but it's fine just to send us a tip; we'll write it up for you. The idea is not to have people writing tutorials all the time, but rather to share different little tips and tricks that help along the way. It can be something as simple as showing how a candle would reflect light on the wall, or it can be something more difficult like using a scatter brush or creating a glow effect. You could tell a big secret, or you could just tell a little tip. You can even just say how you did one particular effect in one of your photomanipulations.

I think I  like the day to night help most :D I did that in one manip, but I am not quite satisfied and would like to learn that better

the other thing is to achieve that painted feel that some manips have, I have 2 where it worked but usually I don't get it the way I want lets say to change a wolf photo into something that looks .. well like digitally painted if there would be a tutorial on that that would be awesomesauce

I wish I could help myself but I am terrible at explaining how I do things because I work pretty intuitive by playing around

I think I've decided on what kind of tutorial i want to do, I kind of want to do one of how to turn an image from daytime to nighttime, and I may do it in two ways: one using the moonlight as a light source for a cooler tone and two using like a lamp or candle or something with warmer tones. Both would work the same way essentially, but with different color schemes. What do you think?
