In this little Photoshop tutorial well be designing a nature blur effect; it is easy but so useful and interesting effect.

Lets start! You need to find some appropriate picture to use it in our tutorial. Use Google Images to find some
pictures or feel free to use mine. If you want to download the picture used above, please feel free: Butterfly.jpg

Now duplicate this layer with Ctrl+J and hide the copy (click on the eye, which indicates layer visibility) and go to lower
layer. Use Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast with the next presets to make the picture a little bit darken:

See the result:

Now go back to the hidden copy of layer and make it visible again. After that apply Filter > Blur > Motion Blur with
similar settings to these:

Now we have something like this:

Now lets add some text. Get out the Horizontal Type Tool (just the regular one) and write out something like The
nature on two lines using any color.

In the above image Ive used Arial Black as my font of choice, which is free. Now use Select > Load Selection to
create the selection. After that we can delete this text layer because we dont need it more for this tutorial. Go to the
blurred layer and press Delete to clear selected area, after that deselect chosen area with Ctrl+D.

Well, the second thing to do is to find the elements we will use in this tutorial later. I prefer to usethese. Lets start
mixing the curls with the type. First you will have to find the right ornament for each letter you want.

After that replace color to #deff00 and duplicate the layer with Ctrl+J. Then apply for the new layerFilter > Blur >
Gaussian Blur with similar settings to these:

Now we have the next picture:

Set up opacity to 60% for this layer. Ok now select blurred layer with nature (Ctrl+right click the Layer Thumbnail in the
Layers Palette) and press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert the selection, after that press Deleteto clear image in selection.

Now go to the lower layer and press Ctrl+Shift+I again, then press Delete:

Remove the selection with Ctrl+D. Our nature blur effect is done. Looking great! Isnt it?

Step 1
First we are going to create a new document in Photoshop with 10001000 pixels with all the default settings. Fill the
background layer with black color.

Step 2
Select Horizontal Type Tool and place any text (white color, caps on) filling all background as you can see below. Only use
one text layer.

Rotate text 45 degrees CW by going to Edit > Transform > Rotate.

Step 3
Open photo and copy it to our canvas over text layer. Go to Edit > Free Transform and resize photo to something similar
to what I have.

Select text from text layer (Ctrl+left click on text layer thumbnail in layers). Press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selection. With
selection active, select photo layer and press Delete to clear selection contents.

Press Ctrl+D to deactivate selection.

Apply Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast.

Step 4
Create a new layer. Select Horizontal Tool (Arial, white color, 55px) and write something like DJ Music!. Create a second

Apply Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options > Outer Glow to both layer to make it more readable.

Final Image

This tutorial is now finished and you got a great effect!

Well, in this Photoshop tutorial Im going to be teaching you how to make a nice magic sphere with picture inside. You
can see the picture Ive made using this tutorial below.
Alright, lets start by creating a new document. For this tutorial Ive used a document size of 500500 pixels.

Now I would like to begin create stand for the ball. Get out the Rectangular Marquee Tool and make selection as shown
below, then fill it with color of #282a2b.

Deselect image with Ctrl+D and apply Edit > Transform > Warp to transform image as below:

Then create one new layer, then get out the Elliptical Marquee Tool to create selection as on my picture and fill it with
color of #4a4e50.

After that select the Rectangular Marquee Tool again and make one new selection. Then fill it with color of #282a2b and
press Ctrl+D to deselect chosen area.

Apply Edit > Transform > Warp to transform this shape.

Time to add sphere to the picture. Select the Elliptical Marquee Tool and create new selection as shown below. Fill it
with any color, it doesnt matter for now.

To cut away unnecessary lower part of sphere to give a realistic appearance get out the Elliptical Marquee Tool and
create a new selection, press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selection. Then use the Eraser Tool to clear image out the selection
as on picture below.

Ok, now I would like to bring some glares to the stand. Go back to the first layer with dark shape and make a little dodge
work by using Dodge Tool (Hightlights, 35%).

The same things we make with other two parts of the stand.

Now merge all three parts in one, then select the Burn Tool (Shadows, 30%) and make stand edges darken.

Ok, we are done with sphere shapes. Now lets start with creating image in it. First of all you should find some
appropriate image what you will bring to sphere. You can find it using Google Images or feel free to use mine. So, bring
our image to canvas, then diminish it a little bit. Go to the previous layer with sphere shape and apply Select > Load
Selection, press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert the selection, go back to the layer with picture and press Delete to cut away
selected part of image. After that press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selection back and apply Filter > Distort > Spherize with
similar settings to these:

You can see the result below:

Now time to bring some glass view to our sphere. For this effect apply the Inner Glow layer style to the current layer.

Now we have something like this:

After that use Select > Load Selection to make selection of chosen layer, then create new layer and fill selected area
with color of #d6d3c0:

Now apply the Inner Glow layer style to the new layer:

Create one new layer, after that activate the Gradient Tool and a grey (#666460) to transparent gradient, fill in the work
area as on picture below.

Then press Ctrl+D to remove the selection and now select the Eraser Tool and a soft round brush (Opacity: 50%) to
make a little clean work inside the sphere. Now your image should look as mine:

After that apply the Inner Shadow layer style to this layer:

The next step what we need to do to add glare to the sphere. Create a new layer, then select theElliptical Marquee
Tool and make selection as on picture below. Then activate the Gradient Tool and a white to transparent gradient, fill in
the work area.

Press Ctrl+D to deselect chosen area and blur this glare a little bit with Blur Tool. Merge all layers to the layer with image
(but dont include it), then change layer mode for new layer to Hard Lightand set opacity up to 70%.

To finish off the glass effect on image I think we should add a little shadow on the bottom of the sphere. Apply Select >
Load Selection to make selection of chosen layer, then get out the Brush Tooland a soft round brush and draw a
shadow with black color as on picture below:

After that merge all layer of sphere in one. Now I would bring some shadow from the magic sphere. For this effect
duplicate layer with Ctrl+J and fill the previous letter with black color. Then transform this dark form with Ctrl+T like this:

To finish off this tutorial select the Eraser Tool and a soft round brush (Opacity: 50%, size of 200 pixels) and cut away
upper part of shadow.

Ok, that is it for now! Anyway, I hope that you enjoyed this Photoshop tutorial! Thanks very much for reading, and I hope
you were able to follow this tutorial through easily.
