Winter Rain and Snow Photoshop Action

The winter photoshop action allows you to add static snowfall or rainfall to your images or even create a rainfall animation inside of photoshop great for GIF images. This action is great for allowing room for customisation as it creates numerous layers and folders that can be adjusted to suit your desires, as well as creating 25 different color options that can be added onto your image.

How to use the file:

1. Open up the picture you wish to apply the effect to in photoshop.
2. Make sure the layer is set as a background layer, to do this go to layer – new – background from layer, if it already is a background layer then you can skip this step.
3. Click the layer menu icon in the top right hand corner of the layer tab and select “panel options”
4. Make sure “Add ‘copy’ to Copied Layers and Groups” is checked and close.
5. Load the action.
6. Hit play, sit back and wait.

More info on the product:

- When using the snow action you can duplicate layers to add a stronger white effect or duplicate layers and move them around to add more snow.
- When using the rain action it is a good idea to play around with the blending modes and opacity levels of the r1 layers and even adjust the sizes to get the desired effect.
- If you are using a low resolution file the rain size may be too large, hit ctrl + t (cmd + t on a Mac) and resize the image.
- If you are using the animated/GIF actions you will need to open the timeline up either before or after running the action, to do this simply click the "window" option on the top bar and select "timeline".
