In this tutorial I will show how we can create Gold Effect with Sparkling Diamond in the Photoshop. Hope everybody can enjoy this tutorial. Let’s start now.

In the first step we have to open the Adobe Photoshop and open a new file. We know that in the Photoshop the file type is PSD. The created new file size will be 1152 x 864 pixels. Set the foreground and background color black as the color #151515 and #070707. Form the option bar pick Gradient Tool and click on the Radial Gradient icon.

Now create a new document. By go to the Filter – Filter Forge – Filter Forge 3 open Filter Forge. Below Stone, select the Crystal filter, and then choose the last preset to be had in the Presets tab.

Check the “Seamless Tiling” box go to setting Tab and to apply this press the apply button.

After to get the texture go to the Image – Adjustments – Desaturate. Now go to Edit – Define Pattern. Now type name Crystal Pattern. Close this document and go back the original document. Now apply some Layer Styles.

In this Layer set now Bevel and Emboss. The technique change to Chisel Soft, Gloss Contour to Rolling Slope at descending mode, change the highlight to vivid light, check the anti aliased box with the opacity to 60% and change the shadow mode to #656565 with its opacity to 20%. In the Contour mode check the anti aliased box.

To the stroke transform the Size to 14, from Blend Mode at Soft Light, Fill Type at Gradient, and Angle at 45, also Scale at 150. Select Grey Fan F10 – angled gradient which you can find-out in the DIALS.grd file to gradients pack.
