    Creating and Animating Rain
    In this tutorial you will learn how to create simple, but effective, rain and how to animate it.

    1. Open the image where you want to add the rain effect or create your own image.

    [​IMG]
    2. Make a new layer (Ctrl+Shift+N)

    3. Fill it with paint black

    4. Filter>Noise>Add Noise. copy the settings below:

    [​IMG]

    5. Filter>Blur>Motion Blur
    You can experiment with the settings if you want.
    I used:

    6. Now change the Blendmode, I changed it to Soft Light but it may depend on your background color

    7. Repeat steps 2 to 6 a few times. make five new layers...u can make more but for now make 5.
    (Each time you create a new rain layer, dont forget to give a suitable name like, "rain layer 1" etc. Every time you create a new rain layer the image will be randomly generated so dont be surprised when each one is different. This will be important for the animation later on.)

    8.Hide all those layers

    [​IMG]

    9. File>Jump To>Adobe Imageready (Ctrl+Shift+M)

    10. Now make 5 new frames in the animation window (frames should be the same amount as your rain layers)
    [​IMG]
    11. In the first frame, add your first rain layer in. (click the eye icon in the layer window)


    12. For the second frame, hide rain layer 1 and add rain layer 2.

    13. for the third layer hide rain layer 2 and add rain layer 3 and so on.

    14. Set "Frame Delay Time" to the speed you like, I used 0.1 sec but "no delay" is good too.

    15. Now,its time to save.
    Go to File>Save Optimized and select gif. Save it, and you're ready
