Question How do I get sweat to look like Gatorade Ad?

I have a senior that I would like to be able to produce the same effect as on the Gaterade commericals - sweat that looks neon green or yellow. How do I do this? I tried to get the sweat to show in the pictures, but I am not sure how to select it onto another layer and modify the color.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Wendy

Here is a URL for creating water droplets. This may or may not be of help.

The book I'VE GOT A HUMAN IN MY THROAT has a lot of optical delusions for photoshop.

heres another good one:

Making the water droplets it the easy part now does anyone know how to color them? I'v tried different blending modes at lower oppacities but it still seems to look fake.

After using one of the tutorials here to make drops you paint the drops the color you want with the brush tool on a blank layer and and use overlay blending mode and adjust color of drops to your taste.

Re: How do I get sweat to look like Gaterade Ad?

This is all great informtion, but I already have sweat/water droplets on the picture as I used a spray bottle to achieve the look. I guess my question is how do I isolate the water droplets from the rest of the picture and then how would I add color to them?

Thanks,

Wendy

Hi wendy... not very good at this type of thing but what the heck never stopped me before.

I spent 5 minutes on the example below... it looks it too

I just opened a blank layer set to multiply and picked a bright green color

I looked for water or sweat stain on the existing picture and colored over it with a soft brush... then a layer style bevel and some paint with light.

I used eye candy water drops setting.
It could look better with the saturation increased in the color and the highlights brought out a bit more.

Place the color version of your pic under the B/W one.
Mask the sweat on the B/W layer.
Place adjustment layer (color balance) on top.
Copy mask from B/W layer to Color Balance layer & inverse it.
Do your color adjustments.

Then click the mask icon and paint black with a soft brush to clean up the borders of your painting
