Awesome fluid motion using Photoshop & ImageReady

When you drop color into the water, it makes astonishing movements. Now you can Photoshop one movement too! This tutorial always provides unique and different effects. You can even use it to make cool signatures but the file size will be quite big.

(Before starting reset your workspace by Window > Workspace > Reset Palette Locations or Default Workspace)

Okay so let's start.....

Step 1: Create a New document, whatever size you want and fill it with Black. I am using 1000 x 1000

Step 2: Filter > Render > Lens Flare

Step 3: Image > Adjustments > Posterize ( 4 levels)

Step 4: Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur (5 px)

Step 5: Filter > Distort > Wave (Press Randomize until you get a smooth texture)

Step 6: Now it gets simple. Press Ctrl + J. Press Ctrl + F.

Step 7: Repeat Step 6 at least 10 times.

Step 8: Now click on this button to export the file to ImageReady.

Step 9: Now in ImageReady you have to animate the images. Window > Animation

Step 10: Now in the animation window. Click on the first frame and hide all the layers in the Layer's palette but the last one.

Step 11: Click on the Duplicate Frame in the animation window and now reveal the layer just above the last layer.

Step 12: Repeat procedure 10 & 11 until you reach the first layer.

Step 13: The image I made was too big so I resized it. Image > Image Size (Use the setting you want)

Step 14: Press Alt+Ctrl+Shift+S to save the animated image.

Here is a sample. This could have been extended by repeating Step 7 more number of times.

Click the image to see the fluid in motion. Pretty cool effect I'd say!
