Step 8: Give the image a soft glow

In this step, we will make the image glow. To do that, first flatten the image. Once flattened, duplicate it again (Ctrl/Cmd + J). Click on the duplicated layer and then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. When it opens, input the following:

  • Gaussian Blur: 16.0px
  • Lighten
  • Opacity: 35%

The result will be a blurry image but this is not what we want, to give it a soft glow change the Blending mode to Lighten and change the Opacity to 35%.

The result will be similar to the following:

Finally, when you’re done, right click on this layer and then click on Flatten image.
