How do you add this soft feel to photos???
Ask Phi Dong.
make a layer copy of the image>filter>distor>Difuse glow>add as much as it's desired
If the highlights are blown lower the opacity or create a layer mask and with the brush on a low opacity "erase" the highlight to were you htink it should be.
I'm going to try it on this pic
can't see the pic
I tried your diffuse glow and this is what I get...
make sure that the color palet is in black and white
sorry I forgot to mention that part
Here's a shot using gaussian blur + adjusting the brightness/contrast
I will try your method now and show results
It works and looks hella cool
Here's a little diffuse
Where is this sepia tint mentioned above?
found a cool action, gotta play with it alittle bit to learn how to make it more useful
While doing research came across these options
Open your image. Press Control and J together (Command and J in Mac). That will open a new layer called Layer 1. Go to Filter and click on Gaussian Blur and set the scale to about 20 for starters. Then click on the Opacity box in the Layers Palette and move the slider to about 40 or 50 or to what you like. You will see the effect on the screen. That's it. Just save the image as a separate image.
I also found that, in some cases, I needed to increase contrast before doing this since the blur tends to soften the contrast as well.
This last one =
some free PS actions
don't worry, he meamt tp say that 3rd party lenses tend to be soft and since you're the 3rd party lens king, well you know
w/ my method you still have to play w/ levels and saturation..... I guess I forgot to mention this as well
i have as many 3rd party lenses as i have canon lenses now
I used the ruin your pic filter
It looks like it did a good job
