You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can add a wind effect to an image on "Photoshop CS6" on Windows 7.


Steps

  1. 1
    First, we should have the document opened, by either creating a new one or opening an existing document, which I have shown how to do that in other videos
    .
    The document is now open as shown in the tap beside the cursor.

    From the new window, we can see that the "wind" add very small strokes or lines to give the effect of a windy image
    .
    This is really a nice effect and I think it can be almost like a painting, and we can experiment depending on what we are going for.

    .

    When zooming out, the photo will look like a motion blow, so we can have quite an interesting effect
    .
    This is the "Wind" preview, but we can also select a "Blast" to add much more intense.

  10. 10
    When done press "OK" to apply to the canvas or press "Cancel" to go back and ignore the changes
    .
