Ever taken a photograph on a sunny day but though it would look better in the rain?

This tutorial will teach you an easy way to quickly make it look like it was raining when your photograph was taken.

 

Let’s start off by having a look at the final result:

It looks alright, the rain is real enough so let’s learn how to achieve this effect.

 

First step is to choose your photograph. For this tutorial I am using this nice picture of the Sydney Opera House.

step_1.jpg  

 

Add your photograph onto a new layer in Photoshop. You then need to duplicate that layer. You can do this by right clicking on the layer and selecting “Duplicate Layer” from the drop down menu.

Now make sure the original layer is selected. We want to add some Hue and Saturation to this layer. So click on “Image” in the top toolbar and then hover over “Adjustments” from the drop down menu, then lastly click on “Hue/Saturation” from the next drop down menu.

Alternatively you can just use the short cut, hold down “Ctrl+U” .

Now you should have the Hue/Saturation setting screen in front of you.

You want to use these settings:

You can tweak these a little bit, to make it darker/lighter or add a bit more grey to the photograph.

Click “Ok” after changing the settings.

 

Next you want to select the duplicated layer which we will add the rain effect to.

Click on “Filter” in the top menu bar, then move down and hover over “Sketch” in the drop down menu and then click on “Graphic Pen” in the next drop down menu.

Now a new window will open allowing you to edit the settings for the graphic pen.

You want to use these settings:

Upon changing the settings you want to click on Ok to save them.

 

Your photograph should now look like this so far:

Now to make it look a lot better we want to lower the opacity and change the overlay effect.

 

Start by changing the layer to “Pin Light”.

Then lower the opacity to around 4%

 

That completes your photograph, it should now look like this:
