First of all Open your image on photoshop
Before the editing you should unlock your image layer.
1.Double click on the image layer
Now your image layer is unlocked.
To make a Duplicate layer,Click the image and press ‘Ctrl+J’.
Step 2-Pen Tool Selection
We are going to glow up horns of the deer. Therefore we should select horns separately.
For the selection I choose the pen tool.
1.Click the pen tool on the tool bar
2. Create the path on horns of the deer.
3.Right click on the path and select ‘Make Selection’
4.Keep the feather radius ‘0’ and click ‘Ok’
Step 3-Add a layer Mask
Click the icon shown by arrow and make a mask on selection.
Step 4-Adjust the Hue and Saturation
1.Click adjustment layer icon
2. Select ‘Hue/Saturation’ layer
3.Right click on ‘Hue/Saturation’ layer and select ‘Create Clipping Mask’
4.Double click on Hue/Saturation icon
5.Marks the ‘colorize’ checkbox

Step 5-Color the object
Now you have to color the horns to make the glow effect.
1.Create a new layer and make clipping mask
2.Select the blend mode to ‘linear Dodge’.
3.Select Brush tool on toolbar
4.Adjust the brush opacity (15%-20%)
5.Select the colour (white shade)

Again create new layers without clipping a mask and give colors(light to dark colors for each layer).
When you are going to light to dark colours increase the size of the brush to get a more realistic look.
Step 6-Adjust the levels
Now you should adjust background color levels of the image to highlight the glow effect.
