Alright, folks, and here we are in Photoshop. This is the effect we’re going to be creating. Well, this is another example of the effect. We’re actually going to be doing the orange juice effect.
But you can do it with anything. You could do this with strawberries. You could do it with pineapples. Really anything. A mango! Any kind of fruit. But let’s get started by going File>New and great a new document. A new document, 2560×1440. It’s just my favorite size working in Photoshop right now. I don’t know why. It just is. I’m going to go ahead and create,
and we want to do a couple things. The first thing we’ll do is establish a simple, glowing background. We’re going to do that by coming down here and hitting this half white, half black circle, and choosing
solid color to great a solid color layer. And I’m going to give this a very, very subtle orange color. So, I’m going to go with a very light, orangey color. Maybe something like that. And the nice thing about the solid color fill layer? Very easy to change later on. I’m going to hit the little lock icon, and drag the original background layer down to the garbage. I’m going to create a new layer.
I’m going to name this layer “glow.” Place a nice glow in the middle. What I’ll do here is use my brush tool. I’m going to right click, and I’m going to say, let’s reduce the hardness to zero, and increase the size a lot. Let’s bump it up to 650, or something. Now, white is my foreground color. I’m going to click a single time. Maybe twice,
and then I’m going to grab my regular move tool, and I’m going to hit CMD/CTRL+T which open up free transform. Maybe I’ll zoom out a little bit. Hold down SHIFT+OPT, that’s SHIFT+ALT on the PC, and then scale up the glow in the middle until it’s reasonably sized. Go ahead, and commit that change. You can go as close or as far from the center as you like. Something like that will look good for me here and I’ll probably go ahead and reduce the opacity of this glow. Knock it down to something subtle.
56& opacity is what I’m rolling with here, just because I like it. Alright, so for the actual juice effect, I have four stock photos. Now, these are Adobe stock photos, so I can’t distribute them for free. But you can get them on Adobe Stock. Or, if you’re doing your own type of juice, you can go find your own photos. Or, just see what you can find for free online, for sure.
I’m going with a glass of orange juice. The great thing about this is, you could very easily with hue/saturation, make it pink for strawberry, or yellow for pineapple, or green if you’re going to do some sort of green fruit.
Maybe an avocado or something like that. I don’t know. Or, orange – well, maybe more of a pale orange color for cantaloupe, or, whatever! Whatever it may be. Green and red if you want to do watermelon.
The point is, it’s not a glass of water. The glass of orange juice is solid. You can’t see through it. So, that’s very conducive to easily changing the color. Now, as soon as I say that, I also have a blue water splash. Now, you could go with splashing milk. But I thought the water was a little bit crisper looking, and would lend a more refreshing looking final image.
Albeit, not as realistic. However, when we’re talking about making an image that has slices of fruit coming out of a glass, is realism really where we want to argue? Eh, I don’t know. Maybe not. And then I’m also going to have a full orange, and all I’m going to do is peel the skin off the orange. You’ll see how we do that in a second. Then a slice of orange,
so I can get the innards of the orange. Now, for the pineapple, I basically have the same thing. Here and some milk there. But, an inside of the pineapple and an outside of the pineapple, and then I use the same glass of orange juice in the pineapple shots. So, we’re going to begin by dragging in the orange juice. I’m going to drag my stock photo into this.
Now, this is isolated over white, for sure. And it can be whatever, you just need to be able to isolate the juice, and because it’s over white, it makes it very easy to go Select>Select the Subject. Which gives us a great little selection,
and then I’ll probably go Select>Select and Mask, and make a couple changes. You can see, it makes a pretty nice selection. Probably the radius up two or three pixels. I’ll feather the edges a little bit, and then boost the contrast to try to peel away any sort of little edges that need to be defringed around the glass. I may even shift the edge back, negative 15 or 20% or so.
And I’m going to output this to a layer mask. And I will hit OK. You can see, we’ve got a beautiful, simple, smooth, nearly perfect layer mask. And before I do anything else, I want to change the color of the highlights. They’ve very white, bordering on pink. Or they look like they have a magenta tinge to them. Maybe because of the color we’re working with.
So, I’m going to add a selective color adjustment layer here, and I’m going to clip it to my orange juice by hitting CMD+OPT+G, or CTRL+ALT+G, and I want to work here within the whites, because that’s what I want to change the color of.
I want to remove cyan, therefore making those white highlights redder. I’ll remove a little bit of the magenta, not too much. And I’m also going to increase some yellow. So, push some yellow into those highlights. After all, it is orange juice,
so I’d rather them be too yellow than not yellow enough. And then I’m also going to boost the blacks, maybe +5-6%. Just to dull and flatten those highlights out a little bit. Now, I could go through here and mask this to the highlights. But it looks like targeting the whites with this particular cup of juice; it’s doing a pretty good job of containing it to just those highlights.
If I shut the layer off, turn it on, you can see, it looks pretty decent. Now, I’m going to collapse my properties channel. I’m going to SHIFT click both of these layers. The selective color and orange juice layer, and hit CMD/CTRL+E to merge them together. It does a couple things…
it gets rid of the mask. It just applies it as a destructive edit, which I’m totally fine with here. That’s the long story short there. So, for taking a look at masking, and building out fake and faux 3D effects, and masking, and perspective changes, and all sorts of different things we covered here today in Photoshop.
Ladies and gentlemen, that’s it! Get it? Got it? Good! I’ll catch you in the next one.
