Hi guys, I’m going to show you the way to create a fake rain window in your photo.
As usual, feel free to download these stocks in the description. Here I have an amazing landscape photo and a rain mirror.
First, duplicate layer 1 twice by pressing CTRL or CMD + J 2 times. Turn off both copy layers, in layer 1, change blend mode to Overlay so we can see the below mirror.
We will blur the landscape because the mirror will be in focus. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur > 10 pixels.
In Layer 1 copy, change to soft light in blend mode.
Pick up Text tool and type out the text that you like.
CTRL+T to expand the size, then move it to the center of the canvas.
Use brush tool (B shortcut), click to arrow icon and wheel icon, choose Import brushes
Load Water brushes
Create a new layer with the icon in the lower right corner, make sure the foreground color is black.
Right click to the canvas, open water brushes folder and select this brush to create the water that comes from the text.
Just dab to the areas that you want to add the water effect.
No need to keep the same brush at all, just change to whatever that you see fit to your photo.
Create your own unique texture. Tip: use bracket [ ] on the keyboard to increase or decrease the brush size to boost up your workflow.
Use eraser tool to remove some places that you want. Before that, you should change to soft round brush.
When you are done with adding water brush effect to the text. In text layer, right click to it and select “Rasterize layer”. Now, merge 2 top layers with CTRL or CMD + E
Open Liquify with shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+X for Window or CMD+SHIFT+X for MAC
In here, use forward warp tool which is the default tool that Photoshop will choose after opening Liquify, warp your text just like this. Increase pressure to 100 in case you are using mouse.
Then, hit OK.
In second layer, press CTRL or CMD + G to create a group. Hold CTRL and click to top layer to take the selection of the text.
Then, in group layer, click to layer mask to add the text to layer mask.
In text layer, change blend mode to soft light
Make it look clearly by pressing CTRL+J. Decrease opacity to 50%
Final step, add a bit of contrast to the image with Curves adjustment layer.
