Howdy! In our photo editing section, today we will edit a picture in filmy vertical lines panels in Photoshop. This is an amazing photo editing technique which I have ever seen. I have tried it many times on my photos successfully. Now I’m excited to share this technique with you with proper guidance. In this tutorial, I will take a picture and will divide into vertical grids. After that, I will change the hue of every grid through hue and saturation properties. That is a simple way, which I have told you step by step in below.

Steps to Edit a Picture in Filmy Vertical Lines Panels
Step 1: Open a Picture from Computer
In our first step, open an image from computer. I decided to open a kid image with a dog. The main reason is that it is a cute image the effect will make it also more cute. Go to File –> Open from the main menu or press the command Ctrl + O from a keyboard. An open window will expose, here pick-up the require image from the computer and do click Open button.
Step 2: Create New Layer for Vertical Grids
In our second step, make the new layer in Layer Panel. The main objective is that through this we would able to make vertical or column grids. Because this new layer will transparent and the best way to do work separately without any disturbance on an Original layer. Here do click on the second icon from the right side in below of layer panel. Change the layer name as “Vertical Grids”. See a below picture I have created a new layer.
Step 3: Create Vertical Grids
In the 3rd step, make the vertical Grids on the new layer. For this purpose select the Single Column Marquee Tool from Toolbar. Keep in mind before plotting Grids, press the command Ctrl + R. You will see a scale will appear on the screen. Now you can plot vertical grids having same spaces. In the below picture, I have plotted vertical grids with same space just using Single Column Marquee Tool by holding Shift key. See more about Marquee Tool here http://www.photoshophelps.com/2015/08/06/photoshop-basics-ways-to-use-marquee-tools-for-selections/.
Step 4: Convert Grids into Black Stroke
The vertical grids have been plotted, now convert these grids into a black stroke. For this purpose go to Edit -> Stroke from the main menu. A Stroke window will pop-up, here give stroke width 2px, Color black, location inside and click on Ok button.
You will see the lines will be converted into black stroke like below picture.
Step 5: Select Each Grid by Rectangular Marquee Tool
With black lines, grids have been separated. Now select the each Grid by Rectangular Marquee Tool. Pick up this tool from Toolbar, and select a panel top to bottom like below picture.
After that, we can change the color of each panel easily.
Step 6: Hue and Saturation the Grids
In this step, I will colorize every grid in multi colors by using Hue and saturation properties. The panel has been selected by rectangular tool now click on a 4th icon from the left side in below of Layer panel. A Hue list will pop-up here, pick up the option Hue/Saturation.
Recently a Hue/Saturation properties window will slide out. Here first of all check the colorize option and adjust the values as Hue 164, Saturation 25, Lightness 0.
You will see this will a very light color, the reason is that just we want this effect so we will go light color to dark. So keep first panel light and end panel dark. Here I have colorized the first panel.
The first grid has been completed, now colorize other grids in multi colors by repeating the same step. For second grid adjust hue as saturation as Hue 160, Saturation 25, Lightness 0. For 3rd grid put values as Hue 156, Saturation 25 and Lightness 0 with type Color. So at the end I have colorized every grid in multicolored, look below picture.
This was our final step, we have colorized all vertical grids in multi colors just in 6 steps. I hope you will have understood it and will do practical work at your end. See our final results in the below picture.
In the end I conclude that we can create easily multi colors filmy vertical grids on a photo just Photoshop. In the above tutorial, we have followed just 6 step to complete our work. First of all opened and image from the computer and created a new layer. Made the vertical grids by single column marquee tool and colorize it one by one with hue and saturation properties. This was our complete procedure, I hope you will have enjoyed it.
