    1. In photoshop on the top bar, go to Filter
    2. Click on Render
    3. Once this is clicked or the mouse is over it, click on Lens Flare
    4. Should be a few different types of lens flare, play around with all the settings etc to get your desired effect.

    Hope this helps.

    Lens flares rarely work well if you've just started, try to keep it natural and you'll do fine.

    One of the most important things for photography is getting a good white balance.

    For the love of god, dont use the standard lens flare on photoshop! It looks tacky and rarely looks realistic.
    (Saying that... I still add flares using another method and I'm not proud of it. )

    As a photog just starting out, keep it looking natural and well composed is best, play with levels and curves

    To stop my spamming - this is what happens when you don't check your white balance when you start shooting.
    And how you can rescue it into a half decent photo.

    Went for a J-Hui vibe with a copy of your patented gradient flare JoJo.

    Love the idea of this thread, one of the best ways to learn and see what everyone else does to their images.

    Here's one from me.

    I'd be dead keen to see the shot of the falcon in the field, "Nostalgia".
