Feel free to use your own background or your own animal if you’d like. Click the Adjustment Layer icon and click “Invert”. To restrict the adjustment layer to affect just the animal, we need to clip it or restrict to the animal layer. San Andrea’s Manipulation Editing
To do this, click the Clipping mask icon or press Ctrl + Alt + G on Windows or Cmd + Option + G on a Mac. You can also go to Layer and “Create Clipping Mask”. Click the Adjustment Layer icon again, click, “Black & White” and clip it. San Andrea’s Manipulation Editing
Next, we’ll convert the inverted, black and white animal into a Smart Object, so we can continue to modify it non-destructively. To do this, Shift-click the animal layer to make it and the two adjustment layers active and click the icon at the upper, right corner of the Layers panel. San Andrea’s Manipulation Editing
Click “Convert to Smart Object”. Make a copy of it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd+ J. Name the copy, “Outer Glow”. Hide the copy and make the original active. Before we continue, check your foreground and background colors. San Andrea’s Manipulation Editing
If they’re not black and white respectively, press “D” on your keyboard. Go to Filter and Filter Gallery. Open the “Stylize” folder and click “Glowing Edges”. Make the Edge Width: 2, the Edge Brightness:10 and the Smoothness: 15. Change the Blend Mode to “Color Dodge”. Double-click an empty area of the layer to open its Layer Style window.
Let’s drag it over, so we can see our animal. Click “Outer Glow”. The Blend Mode is “Vivid Light”, the Opacity is 50% and the color is white. The Technique is “Softer”, the Spread is 0%and the Size is 40 pixels. The Contour is Linear and the Range is 50%. Click “Color Overlay” and the color box. In the hexadecimal field, type in 0096FF. The Blend Mode is Soft Light and the Opacity is 60%. Click “Inner Glow”.
The color is white, the Blend Mode is “Color Dodge” and the opacity is 60%. The size is 50 pixels and the Range is 50%make the copy visible and active. Reduce the Fill to 0%. This hides the image, but it’ll retain the full visibility of any effects we add to it. Double-click an empty area of the layer to open its Layer Style window. Click “Outer Glow” and the color box. In the hexadecimal field, type in 00A8FF.
Change the Blend Mode to “Color Dodge” and the Opacity to 30%. Increase the Size to 250 pixels and make the Range: 30%. Make a copy of the layer. I’ll name it “Twinkles” Double-click “Outer Glow” to open it in the Layer Style window Change its Blend Mode to “Dissolve” and reduce its opacity to 4% Let’s group our Patrons layers into a folder To do this, Shift-click the bottom animal layer to make our entire animal layers active and press Ctrl or Cmd + G.
I’ll name the folder, “Stag”, but you can name it whatever you like Next, we’ll add an ethereal mist around our Patrons Open the “Swirling Smoke” file I provided To place it onto our other document, press Ctrl or Cmd + A to select it and Ctrl or Cmd + C to copy it Open your Patrons document and press Ctrlor Cmd + v to paste it onto the document Change the Blend Mode to “Screen”.
We’ll blend the smoke more into our image by double-clicking he thumbnail of the smoke to open our Layer Style window We’ll use “Blend If” to blend the smoke Basically, “Blend If” uses luminosity to blend layers together “This Layer” is our smoke layer and the “Underplaying Layer” comprises all the layers below our smoke layer.
When we drag the left slider of “This Layer” to the right, it cuts off the darkest pixels of the smoke, however, to transition the blending, Alt click or Option-click the middle of the triangular icon. This splits it in two Drag the right half of the icon to the right, which creates a smooth transition Next, we’ll add vapor trails using the smoke brush set I provided Its link is also in my video’s description of project files.
If you’re not sure how to install brushes, watch my tutorial showing how to do this Once its installed, open your Brush Tool and Brush Picker Click the gear icon and click “Import Brushes”. San Andrea’s Manipulation Editing

Click the New Layer icon to make a new layer and press Ctrl or Cmd + G to place it into a folder Name the folder, “Vapor Trails” Change the Blend Mode to “Overlay” and make the empty layer active If the brush isn’t angled to your image in the way you’d like it to be, press the “r” key on your keyboard and rotate your canvas Press “B” to open your brush tool.
