So here we go again, i'm going to show you how to make those snazzy default myspace pics you see everywhere in less than 5 steps!!!
(this is really for photoshop noobs, anybody else surely knows this & has their favorite ways)
Here we go!!!



1)Get your model that you wanna use, ima use a pic of my good friend Mel:

2)Duplicate you original layer:

3)On your new layer make a Gaussian Blue on it:

4)Now you have a choice here you can either A)Apply an overlay or B)Softlight blending mode, really up too you:

Here is the pic w/both blendings modes:

And thats it kiddies quiet simple &&& fast, and it makes a huge difference!!!

Any questions, comments, concerns?

If it's too bright, then you can also use Auto Levels to readjust it, or just press Ctrl+L. I've got an old tut on it but it's not all that epic >_

This is also called "Glamor Effect."
I think it's too bright, so I just mess around with the opacity bar, you should put that in your tutorial also, lol just in case some people start to nag about it.
