Decorating your bedroom with Photoshop is easy and allows you to see the results before getting your hands dirty.
As I am based just around the corner from Tibbet’s corner, which can be easily confused with the struggling for freedom nation, I thought I will show a few tips using Tibetan dragons and symbols theme as an example.
I took a rather rough picture of my rather messy bedroom in Southfields using the panorama function on iPhone.
I found some nice Tibetan dragons decor on the web and pasted to the scene. Then using the transform tool adjusted perspective.
I changed the blending mode of the layer to Multiply.
To keep strong highlights on the wall I have created a separated layer with the highlighted areas and changed their blending mode to vivid light. Then I gently erased the highlighted areas from the layer that uses multiply blending mode.
Convert fill to outline
I imported more images for the second wall and adjusted the perspective with the ‘transform tool’ as with the first picture.
I used the ‘glowing edges’ filter in Photoshop to quickly outline areas filled with solid colour.
The Tibetan Eternal Knot symbol was too strong and had unnecessary fill. I created an adjustment layer to fix that. I also adjusted the layer opacity to blend it better with the background.
Then I decided to get rid of that symbol altogether as the design looked overloaded :-)
On the layer with the circle-shaped Tibetan script I applied the ‘hue and saturation’ adjustment layer to paint the wall in blue.
When working with foreign objects placed in your photo, especially hi-res or vector logos it is good practice to soften them with ‘gaussian blur’ or ‘lens blur’.
After that I may use ‘unsharp mask’ filter to simulate the camera sharpening to blend it better with the rest of the original image.
