Magnifying Glass Tutorial - Photo Zoom Effect Tutorial


Magnifying Glass Tutorial - Photo Zoom Effect Tutorial
Photoshop CS Photo Manipulation Tutorials

In this novice photoshop tutorial we will take an image of a magnifying glass and an article we found on wikipedia that talks about Adobe Photoshop and we will illustrate how to create an image zoom effect using the magnifying glass. In this tutorial we will see the text zoom from the article. We will do this using photoshop effects and photoshop zoom filters.

 
 

Magnifying Glass Tutorial + Content Blur Tutorial

1. First we will need to begin with an image of a magnifying glass. I have already gone ahead and supplied one for you. Click here to download the magifying glass. I have used the pen tool to cut out the background and the lens area so the background is transparent. Note that the attached magnifying glass is a GIF file, which has a color mode of INDEXED COLOR. After you have downloaded and open the file, Go to Image > Mode > RGB Color. This is important as Indexed color leaves you with limited photoshop options and filters.

2. Now we will open an image that we want to magnify. I have already placed the magnifying glass where I want to magnify as illustrated below.

3. Now using the magic wand tool, click on the inside area of the glass that we would like to magnify.

4. Now press Command J or CTRL J on a PC to duplicate the selection to a new layer. Call this layer focus.

5. Take your main background layer, press Command T or CTRL T on a PC to transform this layer - shrink it by about 85%

6. We are now going to blur the background image. Take that layer that you just shrunk and go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with a radius of about 3 pixels.

7. We now hava focus area. Lets add some depth. Select your magnifying glass go to the blending options and give it a drop shadow with the following values. (note these layer styles may vary depending on your image, you may use different values that you see best fit)

8. Now select the layer you created earlier titles Focus. Lets add a drop shadow to that aswell with the same values as above. We will also add a Inner Shadow for more depth with the following values.

That is it! And this is what you get.
