Aha, now here's a moving graphic that's a bit more realistic than the last one. I created some random snow using the noise, blur and levels functions, plus pattern overlay.
I found this cold and lonely looking photo on the web, and it really appeals to me. Looks like a farm somewhere -- a hard life, but an invigorating one. The original photo without the falling snow is below, so you can better judge the snow fall effect.
UPDATE: I noticed a "hiccup" in the falling snow every few seconds, so found another tutorial that explains how to get rid of that, as well as making the snowfall more random and realistic.
Comments and disagreement are welcome. If you are civil to me I will return the favor. Let's have a conversation.
I create a lot of original graphics that I post on this site and anyone is free to use them with or without attribution (although links are always appreciated). The graphics I create are signed "Stogie."
