Hi!

I know flares and ghosting are the last things many of us want in our photos :bsmilie:
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 :think:

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