44. Haystack Rock

I haven't really gotten into using the curves for color and contrast correction, so I was happy when I found a simple way to make photos pop, by simply duplicating the layer and changing the blending mode to soft light.  

Keep duplicating layers until the desired effect is achieved.  If you want further tweaking, you can adjust the opacity from 100% to whatever you are comfortable with.



  1. I've tried soft light, but so far it's not my friend. My images just seem to mostly look blurry. Guess I need to keep working at it....

  2. Amazing. I'm enjoying learning what all these tools do through your project. Used the gimp version of the clone stamp to clean up an image today.
