    Great tips! I will give those a try. I also look forward to seeing your mini tutorial on the underwater effect that closed the show, when you get that put up. Thanks again,

    Dak

    One more thing - I think I used Dots in the video for the Mezzotint settings, but try Long Strokes instead. This will give you more variation in the rain drops. You can also run Threshold again (followed by more blur) if you need to thin out the number of drops.

    Glad you enjoyed it!

    The steps I usually follow for rain are:

    Noise
    Pointilize
    Threshold
    Mezzotint

    Note that this is only one way to get there; the important part is to end up with some small, fairly well-spaced and hard-edged globs of pixels. One alternative to this somewhat randomized method is to use a spatter brush that will lay down pixels where you want. Then you can use Mezzotint or straight to motion blur.

    The advantage to the brush method is you can choose your rain density, which would be good for producing some splash in a local area, say along a waterfall.

    Are there any requests for more details on some of the other effects?
    Hey Scott!
    I enjoyed the rebroadcast of your show yesterday. I have been trying my hand at making rain and I got a little bit confused when I went back to my notes. Did you say to use BOTH Messotint AND Pointilizze or just one or the other?

    Don't worry, I have a system to catch those. There should be an email with the link for you to finish registering in your inbox.

    Still a few minutes left to sign up. We've had some excellent and informative shows so far, but only a few have been so unabashedly about creativity, inspiration, and fun, and none have been about landscape photography. You won't want to miss this.

    RetouchPRO LIVE "Running Late" with Glyn Dewis
    by Doug Nelson
    On our next all-new RetouchPRO LIVE show, meet Glyn Dewis.

    Glyn's work has an illustrative quality it's hard to describe. Often his work is funny, bordering on caricature. But it can also be quite moving. And he always gives his images a look that is not-quite a photo but also not-quite...

    RetouchPRO LIVE "Prime Minister" with Erik Hattrem
    by Doug Nelson
    We all have a rough idea about what needs to be done for "beauty" retouching. But what if the desired look is a bit more abstract, such as "benevolent authority"? This is what commercial photographer Erik Hattrem had to wrestle with when he was commissioned to photograph Norway's...
