Hey, guys! Welcome to my another tutorial. I had been busy with tutorials on Instagram and as I have written tutorials on every Instagram Filter, I guess it’s time to write on traditional Photoshop effects. Last time I wrote on Creating Instagram Crema Filter in Photoshop on popular demand.
Monsoon is not too far away and time to learn how to create condensed raindrops on wet glass in Photoshop. After this scorching heat, I must say that I am very much excited about the monsoon, and why shouldn’t be I? I love rain and its smell.
So without further ado, let’s begin the tutorial. But before we begin, I’d like to show you the before and after effect.
Before and After
Step 1: Blur the Image
The first thing we need to do is to blur the image. You want your viewers attention on the raindrops that we’re about to create, not on the image.
Duplicate the image by pressing Cmd+J/Ctrl+J. Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. The radius of blur depends on the size of photo. My photo’s size is 5616 x 3744 which is pretty much huge. If your photo is 2000 pixels wide, you’d probably like to go with somewhere near 30 pixels.
