I absolutely love the atmosphere mist and fog can add to an image. It’s a way to add instant mood and evoke an emotional response from the viewer. Mist can be dark and mysterious, or light and ethereal or any number of other things. However, mist isn’t often around when you want it!

In this editing toolbox video, I’ll show you how to create mist to add atmosphere to an image using Photoshop. I’ll also talk about how to pick an image where the addition of mist will work successfully.
