Often people make the mistake of over blurring an image to try to give it the soft focus appeal, sometimes though, this can leave your image looking, well, err, blurred!
Here we will show you how to change the soft focus of your image and simply create a whole new look.
So lets get started. Firstly we need to duplicate the layer. So, in the menu, go to Image, run down to duplicate layer, click on duplicate layer… click ok.
Choose a radius of around 10 pixels… click ok.
This will give your image a kind of grey effect, as seen in the image.
This is how the image should look after inverting.
And thats it! Simple soft focus photoshop!
