  • Incense Smoke Images

    There's a ton of tutorials on YouTube showing the technique and I became addicted...not only in the method but,
    what can be done with the images using various morphing techniques in Photoshop.

    The journey can lead from the initial image to something way beyond what you start with.
    These images show a lack of original thought, but replicate what others have done...from Michelangelo to my own orchids to Peter Lik.

    Not really seeing "smoke" in the first two, but still very cool. Keep us updated on your progress. Perhaps post your version of the technique.

      So, you path something out, then draw along the path to get a clean edge, then liquify and warp it to look like smoke making sure the blending mode is screen/lighten or that sort and then just mask it out, right? Looks cool, but not sure how much of it is smoke.

        The hands was one of my first, I selected bits and pieces that looked like parts of hands and assembled them.
        Orchids were done when I had more of a handle on the liquefy/puppet tools.
        Antelope canyon was as you suggested with severe reshaping of fourteen images, all with different colors applied,
        the smoke lady was done previously. Never consider using blending modes.
        They're 100% smoke based images

          Hi Everyone,
          I have uploaded some images on my websites. After seeing the original images it was seen that the images on website have shifted colours and even looked lowres.

          I like the images colour and sharpness on this site :

          Hello forum. I'm looking to make an digital image semi-tranparent. I want the look of the backlit images you see in advertising. I'll be using this on a webpage.

          Also, does anyone know the process used to make real images like this? I've seen many and always wondered how they were...

          I've recently started tinkering with a "Run of the Mill" Cannon XT, and wanted to get some thoughts on some of these images.

          Thanks in advance for the use of your eyes.

          Not seeing SOME images
          by mikajomc
          Recently I noticed I couldn't see someone's image they had posted. I commented on it in that thread. It turns out others could see it just fine. And I saw it just fine briefly. Then a few minutes later it was gone. There is nothing there that even shows an image should be there.
          here's the thread...
