Open your photo up in Photoshop.
You’ll want to place one (or both) of the overlays on top of you photo by going to File>Place embedded and then select one of the snow overlays.
(*HINT* You can also go to File>open to open you overlay and then with the move tool, drag it on top of your image)
Your photo will now look something like this. *Note* If the overlay is smaller or larger than your photo. Simply choose Edit>Free transform to adjust the size.
This doesn’t look that great, right? But we can easily fix that by changing the blending mode. With the overlay layer selected, change the bending mode to “screen” and presto! Your photo now has snow.
To eliminate part or all of the snow from your subject, create a layer mask and with a soft black brush, brush off your subject.
And there you have it! To watch me add snow in action (And see how to use the freebie winter actions) watch the quick video tutorial below!
