How do you add an overall glow to the whole image. I seen to be PS challenged [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] and can't seem to figure it out. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Sean

make a duplicate layer, then Filter > Distort > Diffuse Glow. Play with and adjust to taste.

What I sometimes do is duplicate the layer, apply gaussian blur, say 10-12 pixel radius, change blend mode to overlay or softlight and reduce opacity to around 40-50%. Here is an example.

Click on Filter, then Distort, then Diffuse Glow. If all you want is a glow, then turn the Graininess down to zero, and adjust the glow and fill to your taste. I love this technique and use it frequently. Works especially well with white backgrounds and bright pattern backgrounds when the model is well lit.
