In this article I will show you how to create the softening technique called the Orton effect in Photoshop.
This is probably one of the most popular post-processing techniques out there. It is really effective and can have a huge impact on your photos.
There are several ways to do this effect, but I will show you the way I soften my photos.
It is slightly different from the usual Orton effect, as I use an extra layer to give the light in my photos some extra softness.
