Soft Glow Effects

July 20th, 2007 in Photo Edit, Tutorials by

This will be a short and simple tutorial for photo edit. I try this during my lunch time yesterday and find it is quite interesting. So, I wish to share with you guys too. This is best for those who like photo with glow effect or a little fantasy effects. Well, check this out.

Step 1

Open the image, if you wish to use mine then download here. CTRL + J to duplicate the image and rename as glow.

Step 2

Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur > 3px. Press “D” to reset the color mode to default (black foreground and white background). Go to Filter > Distort > Diffuse Glow and set the Glow and Clear amount to 18. Graininess to 0. Set the layer opacity to 60%.

Step 3

CTRL + E to merge both layers. Go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. Set as below. Repeat 2-3 times to get the best effect by pressing CTRL + F.

Step 4

Create a new layer and rename as light. Grab the Polygonal Lasso Tool and make a selection as below. With Radial Gradient set foreground color to white. Drag it from top to bottom as shown. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur > 60.

Step 5

Reduce the layer opacity to 50%. Well, it is done! Hope you enjoy this.
