8 Photoshop Tutorials Dealing with Water

I guess “Creating a Realistic Water Effect” is one of the most difficult task with Photoshop.

Probably many people are struggling with that…

Here is the list of Creative Photoshop Tutorials dealing with water.

1. Add A Realistic Water Reflection: By Steve Patterson

In this Photoshop photo effects tutorial, we’re going to learn how to easily add a realistic water reflection to any photo. It’s a very easy effect to create and you can add it to any photo you like, although it tends to work best with images that don’t already contain water in them.


Add A Realistic Water Reflection

Displacement Water: By aliased

Creating a realistic water surface in Photoshop is quite a challenge because it is the distorted reflection of the surroundings that makes the water look liquid. The displace filter is an excellent tool for making this distortion.


Displacement Water

Awesome Underwater Scenery: By Pixel Mana

This tutorial will show you how to create awesome underwater scenery in Photoshop. Through this tutorial, we will cover the use of channels as well as cool filters such as chrome and radial blur. Make sure to download the PSD file at the bottom of the page for reference.


Awesome Underwater Scenery

Alien Water: By Andrei Bilan

Learn how to make realistic alien-looking water with this photoshop tutorial


Alien Water

Reflective Liquid Type: By Al Ward

Tutorials on creating metal type abound online, as do variations on simple liquid effects. Most are fairly short, offering a good foundation for the reader on how certain effects are achieved but fail to take that extra step (or few steps) to make the piece really shine. Once you have an idea of how different techniques fit together in a piece, it is fairly easy to combine, say, the process to create metal and the process to create liquid to create something that exists in both sides of the FX map.


Reflective Liquid Type

Creating Water From a Tap: By Fiery Darts

Start by opening an image of a tap. We’ll create water flowing from the tap.

Water Drops: By Lunacore

A photoshop tutorial that explains how to create a water drop


Water Drops

Water drops in photoshop in 5 minutes: By Abduzeedo

A couple of days ago while I was reading a magazine I saw a pretty cool soda ad where they used a lot of water drops in its design. It was excellent and I thought that I could create the same effect in Photoshop using the layer styles.

CSS Sprite Technique Samples

CSS sprite technique is a way to improve performance of a website by combining images in a single large “map” of images, and then display the relevant portions of it on the page elements.

Actually, this technique is used for YouTube Player as well.


YouTube

Here is the list of CSS Sprite Technique Samples.

1. CSS Sprites: What They Are, Why They’re Cool, and How To Use Them

Using CSS Sprites, we can really lighten this example up. Instead of having ten separate images for the buttons (five default states and five rollover states), we can literally combine all of them into one big long image.


CSS Sprites: What They Are, Why They’re Cool, and How To Use Them

Check it out the AFTER example.


CSS Sprites: What They Are, Why They’re Cool, and How To Use Them

We were able to reduce the number of HTTP-Requests by 9 and the total file size of the image(s) by 6.5 KB. That’s a pretty huge improvement for such a little example. Imagine what you could do on a full website.

2. Image Sprite Navigation With CSS
