Re: Need help with diffusion technique

I think you are looking for this:
Duplicate bckd layer and use strong Gaussian blur, about 30, and the image will look like total blur...... use darken blending mode on that layer and drop opacity to around 40-50% or to your liking. To gain back some punch do a
high pass on a duplicate layer in soft light mode and about 30% opacity.

Oh, sorry. I missed that. Well, now there's a couple of options!

Thanks for the friendly bump.
