    3 minute tutorial : Soft Glow look

    I had some time over the last few days to put together another photoshop tutorial
    Let me know what you think - I use this to some degree in most images to achieve a softer look to an image and to take away the harshness which sharpening can sometimes give an image.

    Good. Just what I was looking for: sharpening with hi-pass filter and layers.

    Ed to add, Dylan. Could you post up the result, maybe with some qualification about how you exaggerated some of the steps for illustration?

    Thanks Dylan, I haven't had much chance to look at your latest tutorials but seeing this I know what I have been missing. I have to add, your calm voice is great in teaching mode as it is very easy listening. Thanks. I'll try to catch up on the others when I have time.

    Thanks for that. I like your tutorial, it is nice and easy to follow.
    I've tried it quickly and the effect is nice (although I need to spend a bit more time playing around, I think)
