The soft focus effect is basically a neat little trick that lets you blur an area of your photo. Why does this one make it into my top 10? Because the <em>full</em> version of Photoshop doesn’t even have this feature. To use it, just take a photo into Edit mode, and then press the Soft Focus option on the left side of the screen. Click on an area in your photo that you want to soften to create a dreamy-like effect.
