Step One:

Create a new blank canvas in any size that you are comfortable working with. Place the stock onto the blank canvas then resize it. Hold down the shift key as you resize it to fit the canvas. Otherwise, it will look stretch or squish; move the stock towards the center of the canvas.

Step Two:

Apply image onto a new layer, adjust the layer’s blend mode and opacity. Apply a color fill adjustment layer; adjust the blend mode and opacity. Apply a selective color adjustment layer; use render clouds filter on its mask section to reduce the strength of the effects. Apply a hue/saturation adjustment layer; only change the setting for hues. Apply two different color fill adjustment layers; adjust the layer’s blend mode and opacity.

Step Three:

Select four different C4D renders; make any kind of necessarily adjustments to them. Apply a color balance adjustment layer; only change the settings for midtones. Apply a gradient map layer adjustment; adjust the layer’s blend mode and opacity. Apply a hue/saturation adjustment layer; only change the setting for hues.

Step Four:

Apply image onto a new layer. Select the blur tool with any settings; blur some of the areas to create a distance between the foreground and the background. Apply a curve adjustment layer to create some depth; erase parts that you think it is too dark/bright.

Step Five:

Apply image onto a new layer. Use reduce noise filter; adjust it with the fade function. Apply a mask then erase the sharpness off the areas that you do not like. Select the brush tool with any settings, the color white as the light source; brush it onto a new layer then adjust the opacity.

Step Six:

This is an optional step of this tutorial. Add some texts and a border to your tag but make sure that the texts do not draws attention away from the focus of the tag.

Congratulation, you have completed the tutorial.
