Refer to step 6 to create a vignette effect to focus the attention on the center of the image. Now duplicate the layer, press Ctrl+U to desaturate the color, then go to Image > Adjustment > Shadow/Highlight and leave the settings as it is. Set the Blending Mode to Soft Light and the Opacity to 30%.

Next, to add a bit of contrast and keep the edge details, just duplicate the layer again, go to Filter > Other > High Pass and set the Radius to 3.0. Then set the Blending Mode to Overlay with the 30% Opacity.

Lastly, add a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer on top of everything, and set the Saturation to +5.

  1. Hello, your tutorial sucks. It gives no context to what I am actually doing, and it just expects me to know things not explained. I don't care about what you are going to say to this because my opinion is already formed that this tutorial is no good.

    1. 1. Create a new layer (Layer > New > Layer).
      2. Select the Elliptical Marquee Tool (Press Shift+M until the icon in the toolbar turns into a circular marquee).
      3. Go to Select > Modify > Feature. Set the Radius to 150px.
      4. Go to Select > Modify > Inverse.
      5. Press Shift+Backspace. Set the contents to black.
      6. Lower the current layer's opacity to 21%.
      7. Duplicate the layer by pressing Ctrl+J (Cmd+J on Macs).
      8. Go to Edit > Transform > Scale. Scale it up by around 137% or larger.
      9. Lower the current layer's opacity to 41%.
