Nice softness on this pictures. Can anyone share how people get this effect? (softness and incredible eyes). I would love to have pictures like that for my daughter.
I have Nik Color Efex Pro 2.0 but still can't get a results like this.
Any help will be great .
Make two duplicate layers, one in lighten and one on darken mode.
Put a 30-40 gaussian blur on the layers and lower the opacity to around 30.
Merge the blurred layers and then put a mask on the merged layer and the then paint through that layer to highlight detail areas (eyes, lips etc.).
This will give you something approximating your examples, but experiment with the amount of gaussian blur and opacity.
