First Filter: Blur Filter For out first filter we will be covering a few of the Blur options. Motion Blur, Radial Blur and Gaussian Blur to be exact. These filter will be some of the strongest tools in your toolbox and will provide you ways to create movement, depth, and various other effects!
First Effect: Creating A Fog-Like Text Effect with Motion Blur Instead of using the “Motion Blur” filter to add movement we will be using it to distort and stretch creating a ghostly fog text effect. Step One In a blank document paste an image of a foggy forest. I will be using the one below (Photo #13403280)
Next, using the font “Times New Roman”, in the center of your image type out “The Forest” in all caps. Set the layer mode to “Soft Light”
Step One Grab some feathers (photo #18500284) and arrange them on your image. Arrange them both behind and above your text, in the fore-gourd, mid-ground and background.
