Learn how to convert a summer picture to a winter scene. This tutorial will teach you how to give an icy look to a photograph using Photoshop CS.
Start out with a photograph to which you wish to give an icy look. I've used a scenery. It has a different effect on different images.
Duplicate your layer. (With the current layer selected drag it to the fifth icon below the Layers panel) Now you'll see two layers on the layers panel. Now continue all the steps with the topmost layer selected.
Give the settings as in the snapshot on the right and click OK.
Now rotate image back to normal, click on Image>Rotate Canvas>90 CCW.
Click on Image>Adjustments>Hue/saturation. The Hue saturation window will open. I've used these values, but I suggest you to experiment since the effect differs for different images. Hue - 210, Saturation - 29, Lightness - +23
Next click on Filter>Artistic>Plastic Wrap. The Plastic Wrap window appears as in the image below right, experiment these settings and click OK.
Here's the final result.
