Tutorial: Photoshop – Non destructive lens flare
As a photographer, I spend a good deal of time in various editing programs manipulating images to suit my needs or creative plan. Some photos need nothing more than a quick touch up, and some I want to do artistic/dramatic changes with. As much as I enjoy this work, there’s nothing wrong with speeding up my workflow where I can, and to that end I’ve created a lot of actions over the years to assist.
Lens flares have seem to come into vogue lately, and while they are easy to apply I don’t do them often so love having a one click option to jog my memory of how to apply the flare in such a way that lets me go back and remove it later on. I’ve made this action available for download HERE along with a short tutorial walk-through on how to use it.
