How do I add a soft light to a photo?
To add a extra lighting to your image, use curves. Drag the line up or down until you get the amount of brightness you want. To add a vintage “tint” add a solid color in the layer above your curves and original photo.
What is a soft light layer?
Photoshop describes Soft Light like this: Darkens or lightens the colors, depending on the blend color. The effect is similar to shining a diffused spotlight on the image. If the blend color (light source) is lighter than 50% gray, the image is lightened as if it were dodged.
