Apply Lens Flare to Image in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow! In this video, we are going to show you how you can apply a lens flare to an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
In this tutorial, Photoshop has already been opened.
An image has been opened up as well. We can see the document in the tab at the top. In this tutorial, there is a second document tab on the left-hand side. The layers are at the right-hand side.
If our document has more than one layer, we make sure that we select the one with which we want to work.
Then, we find and click "Filter".
We come down to "Render" and click it.
Then, we want to select "Lens Flare..." by clicking it. We have our preview box with the image.
In the preview, there is a very small cross which we can click and drag around. The effect is seen better in the dark corners. In this video, the effect is put in the top corner from where the sunlight actually comes.
We can adjust the "Brightness" value. We do it just by clicking and dragging the slider.
Alternatively, we can just type a number.
In "Lens Type", we select the type that we prefer. The default is "50-300mm Zoom". Depending on what image we have, maybe other settings will look better. In this tutorial, "Movie Filter" is selected.
We are going to make the effect slightly brighter. We'll see a reflection.
We simply click "OK" once we are satisfied with the changes. This will apply the effect to the layer.
