    Default any idea on how to photoshop flaring/ghosting into a shot

    Hi!

    I know flares and ghosting are the last things many of us want in our photos
    But i found this photo that looked rather nice

    So it got me wondering, is there any way to digitally add the effect of lens ghosting into
    a photo? (not talking about the lens flare filter in PS though)

    Any help'd be very much appreciated

    manually dodging the photo till it looks like flare? I think its quite possible but time consuming..

    If what you mean is lens flare, you can add it easily in Photoshop. Under filters>Render>lens flare.

    A few types for you to choose as well.

    Hmm...tried using a huge 1400 pixels brush and dodging away the shadows.
    Then I slightly reduced overall contrast to mimic the contrast-robbing effects of ghosting

    Still not there but pretty close! Thanks for the suggestion!
