Neon Light Effect Photoshop Tutorial

16 Dec 2021

In today's Photoshop tutorial I'm going to show you how to create a vibrant visual effect by adding neon lights to a photo. This popular art style often incorporates simple shapes or text for the neon lights, which are illuminated in bright colours. I'll explain how to use Photoshop to draw a custom shape and give it a vibrant glow with the help of Photoshop's Layer Style options, then we'll use a clever technique to apply a colourful ambience to the original photo as if it is being illuminated by the new light source. As a finishing touch, we'll also add some smoke and particle effects to create a neat cyberpunk art piece with a futuristic vaporwave style.
