Newbie Orton/Dreamy effect workflow - Help

Hi Guys,

I'd like to learn how to do those Orton or dreamy effects on your photos using CS3. Could you share to me you workflow or link to some sites?

Thanks in Advance,
Ted

Re: Orton/Dreamy effect workflow - Help

I had a play with both of the above tutorials and have posted the outcome with a original snap,
both have merits and make a real easy actions

Mucker that's a great link and have been reading through the pages there ( Have you thought to put it into the library ?)

I didn't see mention of this in the above linked tutorials, but you can also achieve a similar effect by converting your image to CMYK, then Gaussian blurring the K/Black channel (I used a blur of 8.0 for this example). Revert back to RGB, save as JPEG.
