Made upon request!

I used my 'Solitude' image, which can be found here: [link]


F U L L V I E W, otherwise you won't get it. :P



I hope it helps; if it's confusing let me know and I'll redo!



Edit!
To achieve it on a black or dark background, set the top pic to 'multiply' and use white brushes (or a white silhouette). Instead of using a drop shadow on the brushes, use an outerglow. :D :spotlight-left:Tip from ~axis85:spotlight-right:

great tutorial, i get it now! i just need to find a way of converting it from photoshop tools to photoimpact :S do you think it would work if i painted the brushes as an 'image'? then used that over the top?

Hi, arrsistable! I used your amazing tutorial to create the border of this recent photomanipulation of mine: [link]

(BTW, I used your fog brushes to create the border ;))

Thanks! :heart:

I found, that with the random colours you need (say ev green or HL purple) you can do the same thing, but then make that huge black brush into a brush preset, make a mask layer on your picture and do it like that. so you get the clear, sharp yet floaty look on another random coloured bg. Yeah... if that made sense. if it didnt let me know and ill explain it. its just pesky when your trying to get it on another site and it just wont work :strong:

Hmm... this is really neat, and I've tried to do this, and it works good, until I get to the part where you set the original pic to "screen", and then start adding the brushes on the new layer... then, for some reason, it always keeps the original, box-shaped border, and won't let me go over it with the brushes... I don't know what I'm doing wrong. x.x
