Tutorial: Using the Lens Flare Filter in Photoshop

Thank you for once again letting me know that you are enjoying exploring Filters in Photoshop.     Based upon your feedback and interest, I will take the next few weeks to explore a few more filters that I think you will find useful in your scrapbooking layouts.  Today let’s look at the Lens Flare Filter.

This beautiful layout was created by Priss (forum name pssequimages), using Rocky Mountain Dreams. 

I asked her to create a layout for me with this tutorial in mind, so she did not include any light in the lantern.  Perfect for our needs! Let’s add our own light using the Lens Flare Filter. But first, let’s convert the layout to a Smart Object. (Right click on the layer > Convert to Smart Object.  Doing so will allow Photoshop to place the filter on it’s own layer, giving us the opportunity to adjust it if we like.  For more about Smart Filters:  How Smart ARE Smart Filters.)
