Adding a lens flare to the composite layer

14. Press Alt+Shift+Ctrl+E to stamp all visible onto the new layer. All the other layers are irrelevant at this point. Still, it is best to keep the underlying layers in case future changes need to be made to this file; this is why we avoided flattening all the layers into one.

15. Choose Filter > Texture > Grain. Select a low intensity in the Filter Gallery dialog box; drag the slider to 10 and click OK.

TIP A slight amount of grain or noise helps correct problems with color banding common in inkjet printers.
