How Can I Make a Nice Fog/Smoke Effect?

Recommended Posts

Hey there again.

Your best bet would be to experiment by adding a new layer on top of the one you're working on, running Effects > Render > Clouds on it and experimenting with the blend modes and transparency of the layer.

I've tried that, really not working out for me :/

hmmm.... Another idea is to do that clouds thing on one layer then make that layer invisible. Add a new layer on top of it and use the clone stamp tool with a really low transparency on the brush and try paint some light fog onto the photo.

^ good tutorial :)

What are you using the fog/smoke for? If it is something like fog on a lake or in a forest, you could draw it yourself by painting horizontal lines on several semi-transparent layers (using the paintbrush tool) and blurring them.
