dreamy pastel effect tutorial by ivadesign dreamy pastel effect tutorial by ivadesign
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:
