Reducing glow that is already there


Recommended Posts

Hi! First post on these forums.

 

So I have a picture that has a glow, and that glow continues out of the borders of the picture, which makes it look super ugly:

If you put your head down a bit you can see that the glow gets cut off, and it's very visible on a black background. How do I reduce the radius of that glow, while still keeping its glow-y feeling?

Hello. :)

 

Duplicate your layer.

Increase canvas size. (menu bar > image > canvas size)

Make your bottom layer just a basic white to be a background.

 

Now, on your top layer, fade your image's edges.

 

You can do this by either using this plugin : http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/26479-trs-edge-fader-extreme-v-505-dec-262013-pm/

 

Or you can try the gradient tool set to "transparency mode". Play with the different gradient types to see which one helps fade your edges best.
