Hi, I have this photo here:

I'm trying to 'turn on' the neon light on photoshop but nothing seems to make it look realistic. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi

We are lucky ! I rarely keep the images after replying, so I would have had to create it again. But fortunately I not used those layer effects since, so the last settings were still in the dialogue

Well, the issue might be more complex than you expected, in my opinion you should remove the shadow of the neon lamp, mask the lower part and the inside of its wall to be able to create a more realistic lighting situation with Adjustment Layers.

For the lit lamp itself a Shape Layer with a Stroke and some Layers Styles on a Group thereof might suffice.

c.paffenbichler is right - it would be better with the shadow removed first

Hi

You could use the pen tool to make a shape then use a combination of blending modes and layer styles

Here a blue shape set to vivid light , A white Inner Glow set to screen   and a light blue outer glow set to Linear Dodge (Add)

As the neon lamp itself would be a light-source I think it might be useful to create it as a shape of its own.

Would you be able to offer a step by step tutorial for this? I can't get the inner fill color correct.
