Hi guys, welcome to SaDesign channel, today I’ll show you how to make the photo look dreamy in Photoshop.
(1). First, duplicate background with CTRL or CMD + J, right click to Layer 1 and choose “Convert to Smart Object”. Go to Filter > Blur Gallery > Iris Blur, expand the circle to cover all the image and adjust the blur pixels to around 21 in the middle or on the right-hand side.
(2) Create a new layer, go to Select > Color Range > use eyedropper tool to select the light come from the window, increase fuzziness until all the light is selected. Use “Lasso tool” (L shortcut), pick the third icon which is “subtract from selection” in tool tab. Then, we circle the areas that we don’t want to select just like the faces.
(3). Press SHIFT + F5 and choose “White” in contents. Deselection with CTRL or CMD + D. Now we have the selection of the light, convert it to smart object. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur, increase the radius pixels to the point that the light looks like is in heaven. Reduce the fill a bit and duplicate it. In the new layer, choose gaussian blur and reduce the radius, keep the fill about 100%.
(4). Right click to the adjustment icon and choose “Levels”. Go to Blue channel and change the output levels of black from 1 to 16 and white from 255 to 254.
(5). Groups all layers into group and add layer mask to it. Use brush tool with back in foreground and paint over the areas that we don’t want to apply the effect. Reduce the opacity to make it looks more natural. That’s it. Have fun with the result.
