How To create a Neon Glowing Effect in PicsArt?

A Glow Effect can be brought to your images with the help of the Layer Tool, Brush Tool and a few colours.

With “Red” (or any colour) being the Highlight and “White” being the glow underneath the highlight.

When “Screened” together, the White rises upwards and the Red starts to shine, creating a glow Effect.

On my side, I used the Brush Tool to highlight the areas in “white“. Refer to the image provided above for more information.
Note: You need to make the highlight in “White Colour”. That is how you’re gonna get a bright light.

Step 6 : Create a Second Empty Layer.

Step 7 : On the new Layer. You will have to mask the highlighted areas with any bright colour of your choice.PicsArt Glow Cover up

As you can see in the image above. I covered up the whole highlighted areas in “Red”.

Step 8 : Once you are done masking all the highlighted areas, move ahead to the blending modes and select “Screen”.PicsArt Glow Selection

“Screen” Option makes the masked Layer transparent allowing light to pass through. Which is why the inner color (the white colour) starts to look like as if it’s glowing.

Below is a sample of the end result.
