A trick from dooce.com for glowy photos—perfect for babies, kittens, and brides. Dooce has clearly written steps if you want to hop over there. Here are less clearly written steps: open image, duplicate layer, gaussian blur top layer to 5 (or whatever floats your boat), set transparency of blurred layer to "darken." Ta-da! Insta-schmaltz!
Plus, another lovely thing about rounded corners, they clean up the schmutz on the edges of your not-so-perfect snapshots. See the little black triangle in the bottom right corner of the middle photo? Round the corners, and—gone.
