Applying Lens Flare Effects To A Picture ( Non-Destructive )

1 post in this topic

Hi !

 

Intro :

 

This tutorial was adapted from a Photoshop tutorial written by Steve Patterson and it shows how we can add up lens flare/camera trouser effect to a picture in Paint.NET without any post-saving irreversible changes. We will manipulate 'blending mode' of the layer to do so, so we will turn this image from this :

 

Crystal_Ball_Hand.png

 

to this :

 

Crystal_Ball_Hand_II.png

 

Plugin needed :

 

i) Lens Flare, OR

ii) Camera Trouser Flare, OR

iii) PS FilterPdN + Axion ( Photoshop plugin )

 

Steps :

 

1. Opens image.

2. Add up a new layer. Fill it with black. Set this layer to 'Screen' mode.

3. Opens the plugin. In this case I'll use Camera Trouser Flare with this setting :

It'll looked like this after adding up the effect :

 

Tut2b.png

 

Somehow the setting varies from picture to picture, and that setting is appropriate for the picture used in this tutorial.

 

And we're done !

 

Note : This is how the same layer looked like ( in normal mode ) :

 

Tut2c.png

 

 

Tweak the intensity of the light by adjusting the transparency of the layer, if you feel that the light is too bright.

 

 

All the best !
