I would like to to create the image above. I have tried to make multiples layers of the waves and edit it's opacity but it does not seem to work. I would really appreciate some feedback and guidance. Thank you.

    Can you post a screenshot of what you did? It seems that multiple layers of waves with opacity would be the answer, so it would be helpful to see where you're running into trouble. – spiral Jun 17 '16 at 7:57

What I did:

  • Create each wave with white to transparent gradient in different layers (maybe solid fill works better)
  • Each layer is set as "Soft Light"
  • Layer order does matter, play around which ones should go on top of which till you get the effect desired.
  • Set varying opacity for the lighter ones

I did it in all of 10 minutes I think. Hope it gives you an idea as to how to achieve it.
