Soft focus.

I am using Adobe Photoshop 6 and am wondering if there is a tool which will give a soft focus effect to a photograph. I have tried the blur tool but it does not seem to give me the desired effect. Thanks

Re: Soft focus.

one way is dup the image, apply gaussian blur then use blende modes (either soft light or overlay ) masking out what you dont want

now if this can be applied to photoshop6 not sure, but you will get the idea ?
