Some people on another forum asked the question "How do you make a tutorial?" :|

So I made an answer.

How to Make a Bloom Effect
Using Photoshop CS

Bloom has been used extensively in more recent games to give a more photo-realistic image. It gives the image a softer quality and usually accentuates highlights, which can give most photos a very high-quality look.

Bloom can be artificially recreated fairly easily in as little as 3 steps (but may require more work for better results).

Finding an Image
As I had previously said, this tutorial can give most images a professional quality, but - as the word 'most' implies - it does not work well with all images. You'll want to get yourself an image that is sharp (not blurry) and with little-to-no 'noise' or film grain. For this tutorial, I'm going to use an image I took, myself, of an Aston Martin DB7 Vantage.
Image


First thing you'll want to do is copy the image onto a new layer (Ctrl+J). With the new layer selected, go to 'Filter > Blur > Gausian Blur'. Generally, setting the blur radius to 10.0 pixels will do just fine, but it doesn't hurt to play around with it, seeing what you prefer.
Image

After blurring the top layer, your image will just look really blurry, and that won't do. You'll have to lower the opacity to get the desired effect. 50% usually works, but, again, mess around with it and see what you like. After having done so, the final result should look something like this.
Image


There is an extra step that can be used to give your picture that shiney/glowey look, but that doesn't work too well with images that aren't taken in a studio with proper lighting. As you can see here, it just makes the image look brighter.

For the extra step, finding the right image can be much more difficult. Professional photo shoots are the way to go. For this extra step, I'll be using this photo of a Porsche 911 GT2, courtesy of AllCarWallpapers.com.
Image

This is a near perfect example of what to look for for this extra step; low ambient light, high contrast, defined reflections, etc.

You'll do everything to this photo that was done with the Aston Martin photo, after which, should look like this:
Image

For the next step, hide the top (blurred) layer, and select the magic wand tool. Right-click on the image, select 'Color Range...', and select 'Highlights' from the drop-down menu in the window that comes up.
Image

With the highlights selected, go to 'Select > Feather...', and feather the selection. 10-25 pixels usually works well enough, depending on the selection (for this photo, I feathered the selection by 10 pixels). Create a new layer (Ctrl+Shift+N) above the other two layers, fill the selection with white, and lower the opacity. I usually set the opacity to 50%, but for this photo, I left the opacity at 100%. Unhide the blurred layer and you're done. The final result should look like this:

You mean how they change when you mouse over them? That's got something to do with CSS style sheets, I think.

I have a bloom tutorial, no pics though.
THIS IS PHOTOSHOP
1. Get your pic.
2. Duplicate the background layer.
3. Go to Image>Adjustments>Threshold. (at the bottom)
4. Slide the bar left and right and make the white area where you want the bloom/glow effect to be.
5. Apply the threshold
6. Go to Filters>Blur>Gaussian Blur
7. Slide the bar around and look at the image. Once you get the nicest-looking blur, you can apply it. (The amount depends on the picture size/resolution)
8. Set the layer mode to lighten.
9. Slide the opacity bar around to choose the best-looking setting. I usually do 10%-15%.
10. You're done!

Here is a very good! photoshop tip :D

Just by using the Dodge Tool (lighten) and the Burn Tool (darken) you can make ur NFS car look WAY more realistic. Also add Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur to make the car have depth.

From this:

To This:

Have any questions, feel free to ask.

Yeah that's a good tip, I used it on details, such as decals or logos on cars moving at high speeds. Gives a better effect than the usual blur methinks...

Great tutorials Jop. In reference to your art in general; your fonts suck and end up ruining your final graphic. :lol:
