If you had an example that would help, I'm not familiar with the specific effect. However, barring that, have you tried the Diffuse Glow filter under the Filter -> Distort menu? Possibly a low settng with no noise might be what you're after...

Clint,

This technique may give you the effect that you are looking for:

Start with the photo you want to filter, then select: filter>distort>diffuse glow (you can probably just accept the PS default for your first experiment)>click OK

Do a Save As under a new file name, then open up the original so that you have both on screen. With the altered version set as the active photo: select>all. Then use the Move Tool to grab the selection and drop it on top of the original (this creates a new layer), be sure the two are registered exactly.

Now do: windows>layer to see both layers. With the distorted (layer 1) selected, grab the opacity slider and move it to 50%. You can adjust the opacity to give you the filtered effect you want. When you like what you see you can do a layer>flatten and save your final product as a new file.

Between the diffuse glow options and the opacity layering, you can create an almost infinitely variable filter.

Have fun experimenting!

Tony

There's no need to copy/save/open a new image. Just copy the original 'background' layer (in the layers window) and apply the filter effect to the copy.

Another way to do a similar effect would be to create a copy of the image layer, and set it's state from normal to softlight. Then on this same adjusted layer apply a gussian(sp?) blur filter at about 20%. This is going to add huge amounts of contrast and will sort of tint the image though, so if you have an image that's all ready pretty contrasty, this second procedure could send your image over the top.

Then I would pretty much stick with the diffuse glow filter and drop the grain to 0. Play with the level of 'glow', I find anything over 4 overkill, but that'll depend on the look you want, and drop the range from the default 15 down to between 10-12. This last thing will depend a lot on the image though. Diffuse glow uses the white in an image to set the 'glow'. No white, no glow.

If you could post an unedited image that you'd like to apply the effect to, maybe a couple of us here could work it for you (and keep notes) and post the results with a how to. Then you could focus in more on what you're looking for and it would help us to help you as it were.

I just had an idea for some of the wife's pregnancy pictures. gonna put together a set of images and call it "Eight Months On . . ." one of these was/is gonna be the mommy in the white gown looking the mirror with the reflection in the mirror holding the baby. I personally hate this because it has been done WAY too may times, but the wife wants it, so it will be done.

Anyway you guys have help out a ton! As soon as I get the images run throught C-one I will post them for you guys to see. Supposed to shoot this weekend...
