Add a mist effect in Photoshop

Add a mist effect to your scenery to add to the ambience

PHOTOSHOP PROVIDES THE means for creating a plethora of scenic effects, and here we’ll demonstrate how to create mist in your images. Select your intended image and create a new layer named ‘Mist’. Press the D key, resetting swatches to the standard black to white, foreground to background. Select Filter>Render>Clouds to this new layer and then apply a Screen Blend Mode to your Mist layer.
Next, select Edit>Transform>Scale and drop the height of the clouds layer to match your image horizon. Select Perspective from the same option set and narrow the top of the layer. Again using the Scale command, expand the layer width offscreen. Ctrl-click the Mist layer and select Blending Options from the pop-up menu.
Alt-click the black tab in the This Layer slider. Slide the cursor to the right, applying a value of 245. Click OK and then all that’s left to do is apply a Layer Mask and tidy the layer edges using a soft brush at 20 per cent Opacity.
