Can anyone give me some pointer tips or tutorials for creating a mist/fog effect in a photo using photoshop CS5?

I want to create a fake fog effect and add that effect to a photo. Is that possible?

Thanks in advanced!

    Is this question related to working with a photograph, or is it a general image editing/photoshop question? – jrista Jan 9 '11 at 5:57

  1. Create a new layer and create a square box with about 15 pixels feather (play with more and less to see what looks best) so the edges will be curvy.

  2. Color it in black and white (half and half but smudge the colors around with any brush. It doesn't matter what style just mess it up.

  3. Hit filter and different clouds. Click F5 like 2-4 times until you get something messy and then use line tool to go around it and make a wired cloud shape with a 15pixel feather yet again.

  4. Cut it out and post it over your layers and change settings. If needed also change levels and boom.
