Photoshop Elements – One Click Snow

photofocus_logoPhotoshop’s little sister Photoshop Elements has some great features that allow for some quick editing. In this post, first written for Photofocus, I take a look at adding snow, with just a couple of clicks.

Photoshop Elements has features that can speed up the editing process for those wanting to stay away from the complications of its big sister. One of these features is the one-click Fx.

Keep It Quick… For now

1. With your image open in Photoshop Elements choose the Quick mode.


2. In the bottom right new options appear, click the Fx.


This reveals a new panel with all manner of one click goodies. Some of these will work better than others depending on your image.

‘Tis The Seasons. Choose a One-Click Filter

3. For snow, click the Seasons icon


4. Again, more options are revealed each giving a representation of what the filter will do. For snow, click the bottom right icon of the four.


Immediately the effect is added to your image. If you’re not happy with it, click the Undo button at the top of the panel or click another filter to replace it.

    I have an old version of photoshop elements — Version 8. How would I go about putting a group of 5 into a snow globe? I am a photographer, but not a graphics person.
