Rain effect

This Photoshop tutorial will teach you how to create a rain effect. This gives the effect of rain coming from the sky. I have used a free stock image of a woman which is available at:www.sxc.hu

Rain effect

Step 1

Open a new image in Photoshop.

Step 2

And then create a new layer by selecting Layer > New > Layer and click ok. Now select a dark grey foreground colour and fill the new layer using paint bucket tool. I used # 5a5a5a colour, but you can use whatever you wish.

Step 3

Select Filter > Noise > Add Noise. Use the default setting and click ok. And now select Filter > Blur > Motion Blur. I used the following settings: angle = -51 and distance = 10 pixels, but you can experiment with whatever settings you wish.

**Changing the angle setting alters the direction of the rain.

Step 4

Change the blending option to overlay and the opacity to 48%. You can experiment with the different settings.

Step 5

Select Image > Adjustment > Level and adjust the levels settings until you see a rain drop effect.

You should now have a rain effect.
