Snow is a fun part of the holiday season. A snowflake consists of the finest droplets of supercooled water that are frozen in a cloud. Each snowflake is hexagonal but there are no two snowflakes alike.
Using the Snow effect in NatureArt, you can not only create realistic falling snow but also add decorative snowflakes to images.
Note: The Snow effect is available for the Home Deluxe and Business licenses. In Home version, it can be applied with a watermark. Compare the licenses.
By default, the effect is applied to the entire image.
The Exclusion Area tool allows marking those parts of the image that should be partially or completely excluded from the effect area.
- Size (1-1000). The parameter defines the tool's diameter.
- Hardness (0-100%). The degree of blurriness of the outer edge. The higher the value of this parameter, the harder the edge of the brush becomes.
- Strength (1-100%). The amount of influence on an image.
The Eraser tool allows you to edit the excluded area.
Hint: You can achieve a similar result with the History Brush , which allows you to restore the image to its original state.
Adjust the effect parameters in the Settings Panel:
The check-box Apply Effect shows/hides the effect.
You can enable the group of parameters Fog by activating the check-box.
The group of parameters Colorizing changes the color temperature of the image making it cooler (bluer).
The Random Seed button generates another distribution of the snowflakes in the image.
The Snow Brush tool allows creating decorative snowflakes. You can either supplement the main effect or use decorative snowflakes separately by disabling the Apply Effect check-box.
Snowflake Properties (adjustable in the Settings Panel):
The General Settings tab allows you to change the basic properties of the snowflakes.
The Structure tab contains the snowflake shape constructor.
