Realistic Wind Effect

Postby Kath » Wed Mar 05, 2003 2:42 am

How do you create a "windy day" effect to a landscape photograph that looks reasonably real. I am not crazy about Photoshop 7's Wind Filter. Thanks,
Kath :-?

Well, wind is a motion effect, so the question is "How can you translate that to a still image?". If you take a photo of a windy scene, the camera's shutter is either fast enough to capture no wind effect or it is too slow which results in a motion blur. So adding a slight motion blur would probably be the most realistic simulation of a wind effect.
