Introducing a new weekly series: Pixel Playground with Bert Monroy

Take a 10-minute recess every week to join Bert Monroy in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, the playground of digital artists. Every Friday Bert will walk you through a fun, self-contained project that tests your skills and challenges the imagination. Photoshop isn’t just an image editor; it’s a sandbox for creativity and experimentation. Take a spin through its carousel of tools and get reinspired each and every week.

Animating falling snow with Photoshop

This week’s technique adds a new dimension to an otherwise flat image. Bert starts with a winter scene and—with some help from the noise filter, levels, and a simple animation—he ends up with an incredible falling-snow effect. Follow along with Bert and see just how easy it is to create this effect with your own images.
