Adobe Photoshop Very Simple Tutorial: A Woman on a Wine Glass

Adobe Photoshop






On a winter day, I was emotionally exhausted and felt like getting away from everything. I spontaneously got into my car and drove for hours. I wanted to go as far as I could. And I saw a restaurant at the end of a road. So I stopped my car. It was very quiet inside. I ordered a glass of wine. I held the wine glass while thinking about my work, my marriage and everything. Then I realized that there was a beautiful woman in bikini reflecting on the surface of the wine glass. I turned around. But there was nobody. That was so strange because I was the only customer in the restaurant. Who was she? The next day, I reached a beach. I hoped to run into the woman I saw on the glass. But there was no déjà vu. To be continued…

The following tutorial shows steps to create a figure reflecting on the surface of a glass, using Adobe Photoshop CS2. The wine glass photo used in this tutorial comes from PD Photo. The bikini woman photo comes from Webshots.





  1. Make a selection with Rectangular Marquee Tool for the size of the woman on the photo. Use Extract under Filter to get her figure.
  2. Paste the woman figure on the wine glass photo. Resize and rotate it with Free Transform.
  3. Apply Distort > Twirl to give the figure a round shape.
  4. Under the Layer Palette, add a mask on the woman layer. Then apply black and white gradient colors on the mask layer to partially reduce opacity on the woman layer.
  5. Apply a small amount of Distort > Ripple to the woman layer.
  6. Finally, you may want to use Adjustments > Hue/Saturation on the woman layer to reduce light and saturation.
