Create a Dreamy Angelic Effect on your Photo

Well, everybody knows you're not an angel..but at least your picture looks like one. Today I'm gonna reveal to you how to create a dreamy glowing angelic effect using Photoshop. Who knows it's so easy to look like you're just came down from heaven. In 4 easy steps you'll be glowing all over like there's no tomorrow. Here's a sample of the effect we're gonna learn from this tutorial:

1. Open your image. Duplicate it.

2. Select the duplicate image on the layer palette. Then, go to Filter > Distort > Diffuse Glow. Adjust the settings on the right hand side until you got something like this:

This the setting I use for my image. Just play with the setting until you got the amount of glow you prefer.

3. Next, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Brightness/Contrast. We're gonna increase the brightness and contrast a little bit. Below is my settings and the result:

4. Then, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance. Now, our goal is to get the bluish effect shown below...or if you feel like experimenting on your own, go ahead and try other colorings.

This is the setting I use to get the above coloring. And yes, we're done ;) Now you get the glowing angel effect on your image.
