How to Use Photoshop Filters on Winter Landscape Images
Open Adobe Photoshop and then go to "File," "Open" and "Browse" to find your photo.
Go to "Filters." Slide down to the "Artistic" category and then to "Plastic Wrap" to create a cool textural effect that really works with snow scenes.
Try the "Inked Outlines" filter. Go to "Filters," "Brushstrokes" and "Inked Outlines" to make winter tree scenes really pop. This filter will highlight dark areas and add depth to snow covered pines and darker background trees. This is a great filter to use for greeting card images.
Use the "Sumi" filter under the "Brush Strokes" subcategory to really pump up your picture. Dramatic and artsy, this filter blurs the image a bit and intensifies dark areas. This is great for snow scenes with just one focal point (like a house in an open, snowy field) and terrific for many other less complex shots.
Make your winter scene look even more rich by using the "Find Edges" filter. Go to "Filters," "Stylize" and "Find Edges" to enhance a winter tree scene rich in details. This filter brightens your image and makes small details like tree branches and foliage really come alive.
Use the "Solarize" filter to make an eerie winter scene. This makes your winter scene look a little post apocalyptic, which is great for graphic T-shirts, magnets or stickers to use on mailing envelopes.
Go classic with a "Watercolor" filter. The Watercolor filter does what it says it does--turns your photo into a beautiful watercolor painting. This is a terrific filter to use if you want to print a photo and frame it as a gift.
