Creating Rain

Posted on March 7, 2008 by

Add driving rain by manipulating colour noise with the threshold dialog, then adding a blur.

Start by creating a new layer then go to edit-fill and use white content.
Select Filter-Add noise and then choose Gaussian and 150%.

Set the blending mode to screen and use free transform to change the height and width from 100% to 400% then go to image-adjustments-threshold and change the setting to somewhere between 200 and 240.

next go to Filter-blur-motion blur and choose an angle of about 45 degrees and a distance somewhere between 50 and 200. reduce opacity if necessary. Done.
