Next, let’s create a Solid Color adjustment layer through the “Create New Fill/Adjustment layer”

When it opens, the box that would see is of the Color Picker so, input the following on the # space:
  • #: 000226

Now you’d see that the whole canvas is covered in a dark blue hue. We don’t want that so let’s change the blending mode and opacity of that layer to the following:
  • Blending mode: Exclusion
  • Opacity: 50%

Next, create another Solid Color adjustment layer and once the box is open, input the following:
  • #: 542b10
Change the Blending mode and Opacity to the following:
  • Blending mode: Soft Light
  • Opacity: 40%

Step 8: Give the image a dreamy feel

In this step, we will make the image look dreamy by giving it a luminous effect. To start, right-click on any layer and click “Flatten Image”. Clicking on this will flatten all the layers into one image.

Now, duplicate it (Ctrl/Cmd + J); click on the duplicated layer and then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Input the following: Radius: 16.0 pixels

After that, you’d see that your image is really blurry; so to make it glowing, change the Blending Mode of the blurred (duplicated layer) to Lighten and set its opacity to 25%.
