Step 13 - Minor Adjustments

Before you move on adding another element to the picture you need to do two minor adjustment - remove some lights around the girl and add warmer tones.

Step 14 - Adding Bokeh

Download bokeh texture listed in the beginning of the tutorial and drag it into your photo manipulation. Place it on the top of all layers and name it BOKEH.

Press Ctrl + T on your keyboard and resize it on proper size. To apply the changes press Enter.

Now you need to blend the layer properly. You want to make black disappear so the Screen Blending Mode is ideal in this case. So change the Blending Mode of BOKEH from Normal to Screen.
