Sometimes there are aspects of an image that can seem a little dull and to put it bluntly, boring. Making certain aspects of an image stand out is a difficult task but there are a few things that can be experimented with to really bring your main elements out from the page.
Making your images glow can be a difficult task, however there are a few different settings that can played around with to give that perfect glow effect.
Having a dark background always help bring out your image, especially if it is a brighter colour, it will create a contrast and stand out from the page. Creating a glow effect will also bring images out to attention. Try and play around with the outer glow and inner glow settings in the layer style. If you really want that glowing effect, try using a white image and then selecting a florescent colour for the outer and inner glow. Note that in the quality section, the best setting for a glowing effect is the half round setting; this is because it creates the illusion that light is being radiated from the image or object.
If you really want to take that extra step in creating an image that glows, add a drop shadow with roughly the same colour as the outer glow, then play around with the distance to determine how much your image should radiate. Similar to the outer glow, half round quality is great for creating a light emitting effect.
Creating a glowing effect can really bring attention to the appropriate areas which previously would have been overlooked. When used correctly, the glow effect can create a professional, futuristic look to your web design creations.
