The softened look is essential for creating romantic, dreamlike photography, and typically involves the use of a soft focus camera lens while shooting. By slightly blurring some of the details and giving the image an ethereal glow, the soft focus effect creates pure magic. To recreate this effect in our Editing tools, try using our Soften tool.
Step 2: When you select Soften, the effect will automatically populate on your image. There you’ll have the option to adjust Softness and Lightness using the adjustment sliders.
Step 4: If you’d only like to add the effect to certain areas of your image, click on the Erase menu in the Soften tool. You’ll be able to erase the effect selectively using the brush tool. Use the corresponding sliders to adjust Brush Size, Hardness and Strength. Use the Erase tool to erase parts you don't want the effect on.
