  3. Very nice tutorial there.
    Simple, yet impressively effective.

    Definitely one of the better PS tutorials I’ve seen in a long time.

  6. Very nice tutorial. As I scrolled down the page I got more impressed. Learned a purpose to some effects that I have never imagined how to use. Thanks.

  9. wow! that looks stunning!

  10. it’s an excellent effect. the only problem that i can see is that after trying it out, i can assure you that this only works on black/dark backgrounds

    Comment by Chris — February 20, 2006 @ 6:34 pm

  11. Nice job, but it seems like a lot of work. Wouldnät it have been simpler just to turn the water on then take the picture_

    Comment by Mike — February 20, 2006 @ 6:51 pm

  12. Nice, very cool tutorial.

  14. Great job mate ;)

    Comment by Ivan Minic — February 20, 2006 @ 10:05 pm

  15. Hi it is a great tut, but i am having trouble filling the water in with white section 4 i get a circle with a line going through it as if saying no go can you help in anyway

    thank you

    Comment by Nicole — February 20, 2006 @ 11:46 pm

  16. Nice tut. I think it looks even better if you apply a layer filled with the same color set to color burn on top of the finished product.

  18. It didn’t work for me at all. I wound up with a bunch of blurry black-and-white blobs inside blocky white pen-lines.

    Comment by LB — February 21, 2006 @ 5:27 pm

  19. wow that looks cool, keep adding new tutorials :D (Y)

  20. after doing the contract process, I can’t do the filter->glass process, glass is disabled, any ideas?

    Comment by Josep — February 21, 2006 @ 11:18 pm

  21. Great Tutorial, although it has some minor flaws- take the glass filter for example where you specify the user to use a specific value, how ever the same setting there will be drastic differences between the original in the tut and the user generated.

    9/10 ^_^

  24. The bad thing is that it only works with that one tap and black background.

    Comment by Mohsin — March 2, 2006 @ 4:09 am

  27. Create a new layer and Ctrl+click the path layer to get the path selection.

    Fill the selection with white color.

    I have no clue what I’m doing wrong, but it’s just not working.
