Buy the product:
The product is a bundle that contains three different sets:
- The “Crystal Balls and Bubbles” actions.
- The "Newton's Cradle" actions.
- The "Sparkles and Flares" brushes.
Let's see what you can create with them:
1. The Crystal Balls and Bubbles actions:
- The "Crystal Balls 'n Bubbles" actions, designed for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements, transform your photos into stunning crystal spheres and bubbles. You can apply the effect to the entire photo or a custom area.
The final Photoshop images are fully layered, organized into layer groups for your convenience, making it easy to customize the appearance of the orbs. These actions utilize non-destructive tools like smart filters and adjustment layers, providing added flexibility for modifying the images.
Apply the effect to the entire photo or to a custom selection:
The first action creates a sphere using the entire photo's pixels.
The second action offers greater freedom: define a custom circular selection, and it will be transformed into an orb.
The third action lets you create multiple bubbles:
Three Default Crystal Ball Styles:
The actions create three default crystal ball styles:
- The first two styles resemble a lensball (a compact glass ball).
- The third style resembles an orb made of thin glass or a bubble.
You can choose your preferred style for each photo and further customize it using the extensive range of tools provided by the actions.
When you look through a real lensball, the background appears flipped, both horizontally and vertically. If you want a more realistic look, you can apply this effect with a click of a button.
You can create customizable copies of the crystal ball with varying degrees of distortion:
Give your orbs iridescent qualities!
Apply creative effects:
