Tutorial #01: Applying a soft, angelic glow to photos.
Program used: Adobe Photoshop CS5
This is your original image. Now right click on Layer 01 and Duplicate Layer (or CTRL + J). While the new layer is selected, go to the drop down menu the is at the tope of the layers window. Select Screen. You can play around with the opacity of this layer if you think it’s to bright.
Now duplicate the original layer once more and drag the new layer to the top. With that layer selected go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Play around with the settings. 4.0 usually works well for me.
Now with the top layer still selected, go to the drop down menu in the layers menu and select Soft Light.
And you’re done!
