dreamy pastel effect tutorial

Lately, a lot of people have been asking me how I edit my photos, so I decided to make a tutorial.
It's rather simple and I hope that those of you who wondered what I do to my photos will find it useful.

EDIT: In the third step I forgot to write filter>blur>gaussian blur

If you use this tutorial it'd be nice if you credited me. Also, feel free to post links to your photos edited with the help of this tutorial, I'd love to see them :nod:

Thank you for the DD :heart: :dance:

Thanks a lot for this wonderful tutorial. I have tried using that tutorial for several times but because of the images I used, it didn't work well...until now.
I posted it here. Once again, thank you. :huggle:

Tried it out!! The effect was AWESOME!!! I'm gonna do this for my drawings - won't they be beautiful with these effects!!! ^^

I however didn't practically do the same thing as u did though.. i completely skipped the solid color fill coz i didnt get that bit ^^;
but i did the rest and it came out beautifully!!!

LittleHikaria's avatar

What do you mean when you say "flatten image" exactly? :D
ivadesign's avatar
Right click on a layer and select flatten image.
Sarah-BK's avatar
it's kinda like merge layers, right? :)
ivadesign's avatar
Yes, pretty much :)

Alright... thank you very much ^^
