    Adding halo effect in PSE12 ?

    I am playing with an image in which I've placed a vehicle on a new background. I've applied a filter to the vehicle to get the colour balance close to that of the background.

    There is now some lighting from behind the vehicle which (were it a real photo) would result in a halo or edge highlights along the top of the vehicle.

    I don't really want to post the image yet, but what's the best way of adding a 'fake' halo in this manner.

    (There are no existing highlights on the vehicle image to enhance)

    Hope this makes sense.

    Constructive Critique of my work is highly valued so have at it !

    There ought to be a recall on all photo editing software to remove the vignette function.

    You could use a curves layer to get the brightness/ tone of the halo then mask the curves level to come through only in the area you want it, if you want a nice feather try a luminosity mask
