Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a stylized wind-blown effect, part of Photoshop Creative Effects and Filters.
Most of the time when photographing outdoors I'm trying to avoid the wind, …and hoping there won't be any wind, or at least not enough wind, to move the …subject that I'm photographing. But sometimes you might actually find a …wind effect, to be a little bit interesting, an I'm not talking about a …motion blur effect caused by wind moving a subject around, but rather by a wind …filter in Photoshop. Let's take a look. …I'll start off by creating a copy of my background image layer. …Dragging that layer down to the Create New Layer button, at the bottom of the …Layers panel. And then, from the Filter menu, I'll …choose Stylize followed by Wind, that will bring up the Wind dialog.…
I can choose whether I want Wind, Blast, or Stagger as the method for the effect, …and I can choose whether I want the direction to be From the right, so you …can see that the blast is moving over toward the left, or from the left, so …that, that blast affect is happening over toward the right. …But I'm not able to adjust the strength of the effect. …
