Softening Images

Here's a pretty simple tutorial that explains how to soften any image you want.

To start this tutorial off, I'm going to use this image:

Firstly, open your image and Duplicate the Background Layer by pressing the 'Duplicate' button:

With the Duplicated Layer selected, go to Adjust > Blur > Gaussian Blur, then set the Radius to 4, and click OK.

The image should now become blurred. In the layer palette, change the Opacity of the Duplicated Layer until your image looks as soft as you want it. In my example, I used an Opacity of 40%

Here is the final result:

You're all done! You've successfully softened an image!
