A new Photoshop CS4 panel is ready! This one provides an easy-to-use interface for the TLR Diffuse Glows action set.
If you've never tried it, the TLR Diffuse Glows action set provides a collection of 25 Photoshop actions for adding diffuse glows and dreamy, soft focus effects to your photographic images.
This new .SWF panel for Photoshop CS4 makes it much easier to select the effect you want. Just choose from Diffuse Glow, High Key Glow, Low Key Glow, Dreamy Focus, and Soft Focus. Then pull a slider to select the desired intensity. Press the Apply button. That's all there is to it!

Once you've copied the files, restart Photoshop CS4. Then go to Window | Extensions and click on the Glows submenu item.
