Filter Friday Challenge Diffuse Glow

Welcome to the Friday Filter Challenge! This week I challenge you to try out your diffuse glow filter.

Before

After

In case you don't know where to find the diffuse glow filter, you can find it under filters, distort, diffuse glow. You will also need to choose your background color before you use the filter. I used white.



Once there you can adjust the settings. Click ok and your done. Of course if you don't like how it turned out you can always click undo. Isn't digital great!

I've been racking my brain trying to figure out why or what you might do with a different color glow. It took me a while to find something I kinda liked. Here is my little experiment.

Here is my original photo

I used a shade of pink as my background color. And a soft glow.

I ended up with this.


I thought that was a little too harsh so I reduced the opacity to 73%. The original being the bottom layer.

Final Photo

Think that's a pretty cool effect. I'm not sure how often I would use it, but I'd love to see what you come up with!

Wanna join the challenge and share your ideas? Simply leave a comment with a link to your photo.

Have a great weekend!
