A large number of my followers have requested this kind of effect so in this tutorial I will show you how I would create a fantasy looking effect in Photoshop.
What you should to learn from this tutorial is how can adjustment layers can be used to create subtle contrast and color changes to get that soft looking effect. Having a basic understanding of the blend modes will also help you achieve the effect a lot faster.
