How Do I Make Shapes Glow in Photoshop?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 12:32 pm

There are a few ways to make shapes glow in Photoshop. One way is to use the Outer Glow layer style. To do this, simply create a new layer and draw your shape on it. Then, select the layer in the Layers panel and click on the “Add Layer Style” button at the bottom of the panel. In the Layer Style dialog box, select Outer Glow from the list of styles on the left. From here, you can adjust the size, color, and opacity of the glow.

PRO TIP: This article offers a few tips on how to make shapes glow in Photoshop. However, it’s important to note that using too much glow can make an image look cheap and amateurish. It’s best to use glow sparingly, and only when it will enhance the overall look of the image.

Another way to create a glowing shape is to use a Gaussian Blur filter. First, create your shape on a new layer. Then, go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and apply a moderate amount of blur. Finally, change the layer’s blend mode to Screen or Linear Dodge (Add) to make the shape glow. You can also adjust the opacity of the layer to control how strong the effect is.
