I did this tutorial in Photoshop CS3 Extended which is why some of you may have problems. However, that does't mean this tutorial won't work in other versions of Photoshop. Just try it out.

Want to turn the picture you took with some sort of light in it (lamp, candle, etc.) in the day into night? Well now you can by following my tutorial. Here's the before:

Here's the after:

Let's start!

001.First, open up your picture.

005.Now do a ctrl+j.

006.Go Filter>Render>Lighting Effects again & apply the following settings:
Intensity: 36
Exposure: -18
Ambience: -4
**Make sure the center of the spot of your light-point is placed exactly where you placed it previously.

007.With your "Layer 1" selected, change the opacity to 66%.

008.Now flatten your image by going Layer>Flatten Image.

009.Once again, go Filter>Render>Lighting Effects & apply the following settings:
