    in PS
    make a layer copy of the image>filter>distor>Difuse glow>add as much as it's desired

    If the highlights are blown lower the opacity or create a layer mask and with the brush on a low opacity "erase" the highlight to were you htink it should be.

  16. found a cool action, gotta play with it alittle bit to learn how to make it more useful

  17. While doing research came across these options
    ----------------------------------------------
    Open your image. Press Control and J together (Command and J in Mac). That will open a new layer called Layer 1. Go to Filter and click on Gaussian Blur and set the scale to about 20 for starters. Then click on the Opacity box in the Layers Palette and move the slider to about 40 or 50 or to what you like. You will see the effect on the screen. That's it. Just save the image as a separate image.

    I also found that, in some cases, I needed to increase contrast before doing this since the blur tends to soften the contrast as well.





    and another
