  2. Doesn't work in CC 2018. Even with the updated instructions the first layer still comes out with a load of washed-out green and transparency instead of black.

  3. Awesome tutorial. Even though this is an older video it is the best snow scene I've seen.

  4. ATTENTION! I was getting the "negative" effect everybody is talking about but there's another step that was not mentioned in the video. @0:44 seconds there is a connotation to "Press Shift + Ctrl (Cmd) + I to invert the selection". You must do this step BEFORE pressing Alt + Delete to insert the black selection. Please get this to the top so others can see the correct steps!

  5. this did NOT work maybe only for this photo but if you get an actual summer image, like one with a clear blue sky, lush green palm trees it doesn't work , sorry. I suggest you make that a highlight in your tutorial that this only works as long as there is NO sky in the image.

  6. I have Mac but in adobe photoshop cc no option is for diffuse glow, what I do

  7. I know that you can get solutions for that on woodprix website. just google 'woodprix' :)))

  8. This is like watching an old Photoshop tutorial from the 60s haha. An anachronism and a half, but funny. It's great though, cuts out all the BS 🙂

  9. nope!! followed it step by step several time still just looked like a washed out negative !
