I hope you will find this another very easy Photoshop Tutorial where we going to learn how to change Day into Night with Photoshop using some tools and effects.
You’ll need Day into Night with Photoshop:
Open the school picture.
To darken the image, make a Curves Adjustment Layer by going to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves and change the sliders like shown.
To make the picture even darker, make a new layer, fill it with the color black and reduce the layer’s opacity to 44%.
Generally at night, colors are less saturated than in daylight. To do this, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation and create a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer. Reduce the opacity to 46% and drag the saturation slider completely to the left.
Night photos generally have cold colors, so we’ll add blue and cyan colors by going to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance and creating a Color Balance Adjustment layer.
Now, let’s add some light to one window. Create a new layer and select a round brush to paint in one of the windows with the color #dadada.
Create a glow around the lighted window with a round soft brush using the color #e9e8d4.
No night picture is complete without the moon. Open the moon image.
Go to Select > Color Range, click on the black background and press OK to select it. Now, invert the selection by pressing Ctrl+Shift+I.
Copy the selection and paste it on the night photo.
Now, transform the moon by pressing Ctrl+T. Resize it proportionally by simultaneously pressing Shift and dragging the corners, then move the moon to the corner of the image. Change the moon layer’s opacity to 72%.
Currently, the moon looks very dominant in the picture, so we’ll slightly tone it down. Add a layer mask by going to Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All and paint black over the moon with a soft round brush at 50% opacity.
The moon typically glows slightly and has a yellowish tint. To add these attributes, open the Layer Style window by double-clicking on the moon layer and change the Outer Glow and Color Overlay settings. Use the color #fff587 for Color Overlay and #ffffbe for Outer Glow.
Since the moon gives off a little light, some parts of the image should be brighter. With a round 1px brush at 50% opacity, paint white on the top of the trees, the side of the roof which is facing the moon and over the wire.
The areas around the light sources should be a little bright. To achieve this effect, we’ll make a Curves Adjustment Layer (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves) and then add a layer mask. Color the layer mask with black and using a brush with 30% opacity, paint white around the moon and lighted window.
Finally, we will slightly blur the image and tweak its saturation. Create a new layer by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E. Now, go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and apply 0.7px blur. Press Ctrl+Shift+U to desaturate the layer and reduce the opacity according to your preferences (I kept it at 60%).
