Have you enjoyed a snow fall, today I am going to design an animated snow fall effect on any picture and want to share with you. I have selected a snowed picture to make this effect, you can take any picture. It has been done by filter and blend mode, follow now.
Start with a snowed picture to make this effect on, I have taken this picture
from this "http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/"
site for the learning purpose.
Choose foreground and background color black and white, take a new layer
and fill black color by the help of Paint bucket tool (G key), go to Filter menu > Noise > Add Noise and set amount "144.19%".
You should get this picture.
Now apply Platte knife effect and adjust the values, go
Filter menu > Artistic > Palette Knife and adjust setting, change the blending mode of
the layer "Normal" to "Lighten".
You should have this picture.
Now make duplicate layer by pressing Ctrl + J key, press Ctrl + T key to
increase the size a little bit. Make duplicate layer and apply
same step, do it again one time more, make sure you should have three snow fall layer.
Go to Window menu and choose animation, visible each snow layer on separate frame to make complete animation.
The animated snow fall picture has been completed.
