How to Create Laser Beam on Body

In this tutorial I will teach u how to create amazing laser beam based on illuminating effect and how to put it on the people body.

Get started by finding a suitable photo to work with. For this you’ll want to use Google Images or feel free to use my picture of young woman. Open up the picture and start the tutorial. I would like to add some cold blue hue to the picture. For this you may use Image > Adjustments > Levels with the same presets as you can see below:

Ok, move to the next step. Time to add the first light beam. It is really so easy. Let me show you. But before we can start making the beam, I would like to note you that you need to get out the Brush Tool before and set up with the following settings:

Also set foreground color to #00ccff. After that select the Pen Tool (you need to make sure that you’re working with Paths instead of Shape Layers). Draw out the curve line using paths. Don’t forget that woman body has some reliefs, so in this case the line should be relief also because beam is refracted on the body and clothes.

After that get out the Smudge Tool (Strength: 100%) and for the brush resource chose one of the standard Photoshop brushes and reduce it size till 15 pixels.

Ok, looking good, isn’t it? Make the same thing two more times:

Good, three laser beams will be enough for now. Then move to the second part of this tutorial. I think that we should add some highlight from the beams on the woman’s body and clothes. Get out the Polygonal Lasso Tool and select the face area. After that create a new layer and change layer mode to Overlay for this layer. Then choose the Brush Tool (Soft brush about 80 pixels, Opacity: 20%) and add some blue spots using the color of #00ccff like on my picture below.

Now, reduce brush size till 8 pixels and underscore the lips lines.

How to Create Laser Beam on Body 18

Ok, we are done with face area. After that invert selection with Select > Inverse and process the hands and neck areas in the same way also.

How to Create Laser Beam on Body 19

And the last one area that we need to add the blue hue is clothes.

How to Create Laser Beam on Body 20

Ok, now remove selection with Ctrl+D. So, on this step we are done with tutorial!

    It was going well until I got to the Outer glow-part. I changed the settings just like in the tut, but there came no glow. It’s quite frustrating ’cause I really want to make a Laser Beam pic. >.<

  • daniel

    i use photoshop cs5, and am relatively new to it. i got all the same results, until i got to the “outer glow” part. i did it exactly as you did but get a different result. its really annoying. do i need to use a specific workspace or something?

  • Toshi

    This was an awesome and fun tutorial. I tried this on a black and white photo actually, and had to adjust it a bit, but still, thank you for this, this really rocks!

  • belwix

    bullshit tutorial ever.

    u forgot to tell about unlocking the layers before move to Outer Glow.

    and select new layer before start Paths instead of Shape Layers.

  • belwix

    who have problem when outer glow.

    unlock the layers before move to Outer Glow.
    (double click the image and rename)

    and select new layer before start Paths instead of Shape Layers.
    (create new layer before start pen tools)
