Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

I live in Canada, so I see a lot of snow. Here I've tried to recreate it, with the Winter Wonderland action. Three layers of different snow sizes and blurriness give the effect its depth.

This action is optimised for images around 600 to 800 pixels. After running the action, you may want to erase parts of the Snow Background layer if it's covering foreground objects.

Lisa, I've been using this action since you first made in in 2003.

I love it..a little tweak here, a little tweak there and it works for all sorts of images.

Thank You!!

Excellent layered effect right in the document without altering the original image. You can choose to keep the layers. I prefer adding a little blur on the top (big flakes) layer.

works fine except the foreground snow, but if you add a motion blur with a value of 6-9 and at a 70 degrees angled or so.
