This quick tutorial guide will teach you how to give your images a soft smooth glow to liven up your picture.

Smooth Soft Glow

1. Open up any picture you would like to use.

2. Next go to the top menu. Layer > Duplicate. You should have two of the same image inside your layer box.

3. Next click on your duplicated layer, and then go to the top menu. Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur.

4. Once you’ve done that, a box should appear. You can use the default settings or move it around. I used a 6.0 radius.

5. Now your image should be blurry. Go to your layer box, click the drop down menu with all the blending modes.

6. Now your image will have a nice soft glow.
