    I have a few images that I'd like touched up with some winter snow, so I'm looking to make snowflakes, as well as snow like in teh GBATemp header image.

    How do you actually make the snow? is there a filter that's available for doing it?

    hopefully someone has an idea on how to go about it.

    cheers in advance

    thanks platty i'll take a look, how easy is it to create the layered snow a la the header at the top of gbatemp? Is it using the pen tool then filling it in with a gradient? Am I even aware of what I'm talking about?

    For the GBA Temp header, it looks like you can use the noise filter then set the layer to multiply (or was it screen?). Then use the eraser to thicken/thin the snow.

    For the GBAtemp header Christmas banner I just used the airbrush with a 50% or so opacity, increased step, low hardness and large size. I did strokes horizontally across the image, more at the top and less as you work down. Looks OK to me [​IMG]

    I use Paint Shop Pro BTW. Not Photoshop...
