Part 6. Creating Snazzy Effects > Giving Your Subject a Halo

Giving Your Subject a Halo

Just for fun, why not try giving your little angel his or her own halo? Or maybe you'd prefer to add a spectral glow, or a colorful aura, to your favorite portrait. You can use this effect for still life photos, too—that's one way to make a basket of fruit really stand out from the crowd.

Choose the Magic Wand tool, or press W.

Click as many times as necessary to select the background.

Choose Layer, New, Layer Via Copy.

In the Styles and Effects palette's Layer Styles section, click any of the Outer Glow effects.
