What's up YouTube? Its Creative Ice Media Group, I'm going to show you a quick tutorial on how to make a dream effect on your photo. First thing you want to do is put the image into Photoshop, like this, which of me. Then unlock the layer by double clicking on the lock. Press OK. Now you want to make sure your foreground and background colors are black and white. Sorry, black is your foreground color and white is your background color. So if it’s not, press D and it will reset it. And then go to filter, distort, diffuse glow. Alright. Now what you want to do is put graininess, 0. Glow amount, 6. And clear amount, 19. Press OK. As you can see it made the glow in with the light reflects. And then you want to make a gradient map black and white. So press OK. Now, click on the new layer. Go into image, apply image, press OK. And go filter, blur, Gaussian blur, and put 1.8 and press OK. And now go blend mode, lighten. And there we have it. We have a nice little dream effect. The black and white, you don’t have to do. You can leave this in color, but it just gives a bit more of a dreamy effect, I think. But now I want to turn it off. Basically that shot will give you your dream effect and do before. And then after. Thank you for watching, please comment, rate, and subscribe.
