With the Snowflakes PhotoShop plug-in you can create any type of snow you can imagine, ranging from mild and fluffy snowfall to heavy hailstorms and anything in between.
Snowflakes includes sliders which allow you to change all aspects of the effect. With density you can smoothly change between a few flakes and more than fit the screen. You can also specify the range of flake sizes, allowing you to have all the flakes of equal size, be it small or large or any mixture in-between.
Couple the previous controls with a hardness settings, which allows you you to give the snowflakes hard edges or very soft ones, and a transparency setting and you can use this plug-in to create noise like textures such as wool, dust and the resulting images can even be used as the source for a 3D landscape. Fluffy clouds and water surfaces are also possible by just shifting the controls.
An extra color setting allows for completely different effects such as a festive confetti or romantic rose-leaves falling down. Predefined colors will help you get the effect you want quickly or you can use a custom color for your own personal taste.
At their hardest setting, the snowflakes are perfectly anti-aliassed, at their softest, they are smoothly shaded dots. The effect will render equally beautiful on RGB, grayscale or Duotone modes, with or without (partial) transparency.
We have used only the finest of mathematics (floating point precision math wherever possible) to bring you sub-pixel level accuracy and full scalability; create an effect in a small-sized copy (as Adobe themselves recommend) and it will look identical on the full-sized image. You can save and reload the settings and it will look perfect every time.
