How to Add a Neon Light Effect to Your Photos

I’ve seen some cool images on Pinterest lately that pair everyday photos with neon lights to create contemporary art pieces that combine two contrasting themes. They often feature illuminated words, or random shapes that stand out from the background with a vibrant glow. In today’s tutorial, we’re going to create a similar neon sign effect that enhances a photo with an integral message, all tied together with a colourful glow that seems to illuminate the surrounding scene.
