In this project you will use Pixelmator‘s tools and effects to add realistic-looking falling snow to an image. I’d like to point out now that most of the settings used in this example are not hard and fast but rather suggested values which you will likely want to modify to get the exact results you want.
A frequently seen photo effect is to have a brightly colored object in an otherwise desaturated image. You will often seen this in ads where everything but the product is desaturated, making the product ‘pop out’. This selective color pop effect can be generated fairly easily using layers and careful selection in Pixelmator.
