How to get an Iridescent Effect in Photoshop

February 27, 2018

Someone on Facebook recently asked… How can I get something to look iridescent digitally? So I worked up a Photoshop tutorial with a couple of examples on how you can utilize curve modification, layer blending styles, and gradient maps so you can get an iridescent effect that you want! Hopefully this helps (and you can read my writing, that’s also something). I hope you enjoy this iridescent Photoshop tutorial!
