Angel pics using brushes in Photoshop CS3


One of the most effective ways to add some flourish to your photoshop designs is by using a wide array of brushes. Photoshop brushes are essentially tools that can be used in the brush palette of adobe photoshop. Each photoshop brush has a specific design or an effect that can liven up the most drab project. From grunge effects to techno swirls to a soft cloud effect to Polaroid framing styles, you can obtain all of these different looks with the right photoshop brush.
Using brushes is an easy way of adding that little something extra to your photos. Start off by adding different brushes to your program. This is a good site for downloading free brushes
Angel wings are a very common brush and you will find many different ones. They are so easy to upload and use. Once you have them uploaded there is no limit on what you can do!
You can change the colour of the wings and also the sparkle and glitter to add a more colourful look to your enhancement.

1. Open up your photo and then add a new layer above your photo layer.

2. Click on the quick selection tool and use it to outline the subject in your photo.

3. Copy the subject and paste it into your new layer.

4. Add a new layer and rename it 'wings'

5. Open up your brushes and click on the wing brush. There are lots to choose from.

6. Place your wing layer behind layer one so that the wings are behind your subject.

7. Add a new layer and rename it 'pixie'

8. Use your pixie brush to place a pixie in the new layer. use the free transform tool to rotate and move the pixie.

9. Add some glitter to the wings using the glitter brush.

10. Add some sparkle and a ray of light again using brushes.

11. Add some extra sparkle and glitter until you get the effect you want.
