2. Step 2 - Create fog for the design

Set the Depth Map to Screen, this step is used to create fog for the design. Pay attention to tweaking some of the fog layers to create a beautiful and impressive design. 

Then, click on the Lasso Tool, set the Feather to 100px. Select the areas you want to create fog.

Once you have selected the area you want to create fog, go to Filter => Blur => Gaussian Blur, set the Radius high until the edges are softened. Suggested ideal Radius level is 120 px. 

When you are satisfied with the result, right-click and select Convert to Smart Object to turn the foggy background layer into a Smart Object.

3. Step 3 - Create a new Layer

Create a new Layer, set black and white colors for Foreground and Background. Go to Filter => Render => Clouds, select the Rectangular Marquee tool, copy and paste a square part of the clouds onto New Layer. 

Then press Delete the initially displayed cloud layer.

4. Step 4 - Create a sense of movement. 

Select the Transform tool to increase the size of the cloud to fill the canvas. Setting the layers to overlays, clip them into the fog base layer to give the fog more texture, helping to create a sense of movement. 

This is one of the great ways to quickly create a fog layer in Photoshop. 

You can save the rendered clouds so that you can create your own fog overlay Photoshop texture.

5. Step 5 - Control the intensity of the fog. 

You reduce the Opacity of the foggy background until it reaches the desired level. Below set the Opacity to 50%. Besides, you can use any other adjustment tool to control the intensity of the fog. 

As instructed below, we use the Curves tool to reduce the darkness of the fog layer, thereby removing the fog covering the subject and foreground. 

You brighten the highlights of the background layer to increase the intensity of the fog, thereby choosing the right parameters for the image.

6. Step 6 - Create visible fog above the object. 

Duplicate the cloud layers and set them to Screen, then position them on top of the object. 

Click on the Curves tool to darken the layer to create visible fog above the object. 

Use the Hue/Saturation tool with Colorize Checked to adjust the color of the fog. 

Create visible fog above the object.

7. Step 7 - Finally

Duplicate the depth map layers then bring them below all the fog layers and set to overlay. This has the effect of deepening the shading of the image. 

This technique works especially well for landscape images, try it and you'll immediately see the differences before and after editing. 

With the instructions above, we can create fog in Photoshop simply and easily. Wishing you success with your images and don't forget to follow Sadesign to see more useful information related to photoshop!
