Dreamy, Magical and Lighting Effects Photoshop Tutorials

About nine years ago, when I started The Photoshop Roadmap, tutorials were all about special effects. In fact, no matter how ugly, any kind of effect was well received, because designers and artists were starting to discover the Web as an invaluable source of inspiration.

As time went by, the need for more complex, better looking and usable effects began to prevail. Tutorials writers replied with a new wave of awesome, eye catching well designed tutorials with loads of cool ideas inside them.

Some of these new wave of tutorials can be found in previous selections I made, such as The Best 80 Photoshop Text Effects on the Web, 100 Wonderful Photoshop Photo Effects Tutorials, A Complete Guide to Digital Makeover in Photoshop, 70 Horror, Blood and Gore Photoshop Effects and Brushes and Grunge and Dirty Photoshop Tutorials, Brushes and Textures. The titles pretty much explain the content of these articles.

For this article, I collected perhaps the newest trend in tutorials: Dreamy, magical and lighting photo effects.

To keep this article into a manageable size, I only selected photo effects related tutorials, leaving outside all illustrations or text effects tutorials. All the tutorials contained in this article, are based on photos.
