How to Make Clouds - Pixelmator
Hey, guys. I’m here to show you a Pixelmator tutorial, let me quit Cheetah here and let’s open up Pixelmator. We’re going to make these clouds. You can find this tutorial on the net, but a lot of viewers don’t scour the net like I do so, if I find a good tutorial I’ll share it with them and this is the case here. We’re going to make these clouds.
So let’s start with a new sheet of paper. First thing I'm going to do is grab my gradient tool which is right here. I’m going to pick the bluish color. You can see here I will get it a little darker. Let’s say okay and I’m going over here and I’m going drag my gradient like this. Now I have this gradient, we can go here and name your layer if you want but I’m not going to do that for this quick tutorial.
No what I’m going to do is go to filter generator clouds and I’m just going to hit okay because we already got a color set-up. Actually, I’m going to undo that and I’m going to get a new layer and hit the plus key here and you get a new layer then add your clouds. So they’ll be on two separate layers, okay?
So what I’m going to do now is add another layer and add that exact same set of clouds, but this time I want to set the blending mode to difference. So now I’m going to create one more layer and add those clouds one last time, make the filter or the blending mode different just like last time. Now we have these three cloud layers in our gradient.
Let’s select our three cloud layers, right click and merge layers. It will bring them all to one. Now I can change the blend mode of all three of them to screen and now we’re beginning to have a cloud. We can go into our image and select levels. In this way we can kind of bring our clouds and adjust our clouds how we want it here. Let me just over bold out the clouds a little bit and there we go. Look how good that looks guys!
I’m really impressed with the way Pixelmator results look. It’s really good looking. I mean I think this is a really nice little program for $60.00 if you’re in the image editing and you just don’t have the money for Photoshop, start with Pixelmator. It really is a great little application. Thanks for watching guys.
If you want more of this tutorials let me know and I’ll make more Pixelmator tutorials, okay? If not this is just a quick example of what Pixelmator can do. I like to showcase Mac Apps and I like to showcase what Mac Apps can do and this is one pretty pack on Mac Apps that I want to do include. Thanks for watching guys.
