Awesome digital bokeh effect in Photoshop

Awesome digital bokeh effect in Photoshop
Our last Wallpaper of the Week was an image I had created using Pixelmator, and I really liked the outcome. The best part about it was that it was pretty easy to accomplish in Pixelmator, but I decided for perspective's sake to create the same effect in Photoshop. The process is easy as well, but with a few extra steps. As in the previous tutorial, I will show you how to create a digital bokeh effect, but this time in Photoshop. The process is very easy and we will be using the super powerful Brush Engine, one of the coolest things in Photoshop. Step 1 Create a new document in Photoshop. Step 2 Select the Ellipse Tool (U), and create a circle. Step 3 Select the ellipse and go to Edit>Define Brush. Step 4 Go to Window>Brushes (F5). Step 5 Before we start painting our bokehs let's create a new layer and fill it with a colorful gradient. Step 6 Let's create a new Folder in our Layer Palette. Step 7 Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. Step 8 Create another layer and paint more brushes. Step 9 Conclusion
