Daydream effect

In this tutorial you will learn how to apply a daydream effect to a mundane image. You will need to use various photo filters and blur filters for this tutorial. I have used a free stock image which is available from: www.sxc.hu

Select Filter > Distort > Diffuse glow and add the following settings:
