#Photoshop: Make Your Own Lens Flare

Last week we discussed how shooting into a backlit situation produces interesting lighting almost without fail. One of the most interesting results of shooting into a light source is lens flare. Whether you’ve shot an image with lens flare that just isn’t quite appealing enough, or whether you want to capitalize on the increased “authenticity” that accompanies a shot with dramatic lens flare, here’s how you can add attractive lens flare to your images in Photoshop. The best thing about this approach is that it allows you the control to have all the benefits of the beautiful halation of lens flare without the problems of decreased contrast, sharpness and saturation.

Botschaften, Nachrichten, Texte müssen heutzutage oft abgekürzt werden, damit man die Message in 140 Zeichen unterbringt. Irgendwann wird es heißen: Oh, muss ich wirklich alle 140 Zeichen lesen?

While not copying originals, some of the features were taken to a better point. Continuous blendable multimode filter (HP-Notch(BP)-HP in 12 dB mode and 4-1 pole in 24 dB mode). 32 and 64 bit versions included.
Thanks to 2Dat for the original OB-Xd and Soshi Studio for giving the rights to continue this wonderful product.
Also thanks to all KVR members for making the amazing skins!
OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X. It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design.
