Manip Academy 2: Soft effects in Photomanipulation
Today's Manip Academy article was written by Cinnamoncandy. I am posting it for her, but the full credit for the tutorial should go to her. Please take a moment to share some love and gratitude on her page! :heart:
Softening Effects
In today’s Manip Academy blog I’m going to teach you how to achieve a softening effect with your photomanipulations.  This is a trick that I often use, especially for fantasy and emotional style pieces.  
NOTE: When I do this technique it is usually my finishing step, so my image is duplicated and my layers are already merged.
Step One:  Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur.   I usually set the Radius at 3.0 pixels; however, you can adjust it to your liking.  Click okay.
Step Two:  Go to Edit>Fade Gaussian Blur.  Set the opacity.  Again, you can adjust it to your liking.  I often use 25 to 30%.  Set the mode to Soft Light. Click OK.

Luminous-Dark's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
I am a video editor by trade but I am trying to teach myself photography. It seems these days that one needs to know how to do all aspects of media. I have found myself looking for stock photos quite often so I decided to share some of the photos I have taken for everyone to use. The smaller ones were taken on a non-DSLR camera so that is why they aren't as big.
