In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create sun flares in Photoshop.

The effect that we’re going to create in this video is the sun glow effect that is really popular in portrait photography. It’s a stylized affect that warms up an image and makes it more interesting.

Like everything else in Photoshop, there is a lot of ways of achieving this sun flare overlay effect. One of the best methods is to use the Gradient Fill Layer alongside the Hard Light Blending Mode, which allows you to work none destructively, and it gives you a lot of control as to how the glow effect looks.

Using Adjustment Layers or Fill Layers, do not add too much to the file size of the final photoshop file. So use them instead of pixel layers whenever you can.

Best of all, if you create a sun glow effect using a Gradient Fill, you can save it as a preset, and use it again on any other image that you like.

By learning to create these artificial light bursts, you’ll be able to easily add sunlight to photos, and make sunset or sunrise glows.

In this tutorial, I will be using an Adobe stock for this image. You can download the free watermarked preview if you like, or use your own image to follow along.
