Open car window in Photoshop

This Photoshop tutorial will teach you how to open a car window. This effect is great if it’s nice weather and the window is closed. This tutorial only requires three steps. I used a free stock image of a car which is available at:

Open car window

Step 1

Open an image in Photoshop.
Select the polygonal lasso tool and make a selection around the area where you want the window to be down. You can make as big or little selection as you wish. Your image should look like below:

**Note the top selection of window should match the bottom selection or your window will have an awkward and out of perspective straight line.

Step 2

Select Ctrl + J to copy the selection to a new layer and then choose Image > Adjustment > Brightness/Contracts. I used the following setting: Brightness at -40 and Contrast at -3
0, but you can experiment with the various settings.

Step 3 – optional

Select Ctrl + Shift + N to create a new layer.
Choose the paint brush tool with brush size set to 1px and the opacity at 20% and paint the top line of the window. This adds a little definition to the window, but is not essential.

You should now have an open car window.
