Gaus­sian Blur is your friend

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Manga With A Twist -

When a pic­ture looks fin­ished, I al­ways like to add Gaus­sian Blur, set to a 3.0 pixel ra­dius. Then I use Edit>Fade to re­duce it by 20 per cent. It loses hard­ness and gains some soft­ness and fuzzi­ness. This helps achieve bet­ter in­te­gra­tion be­tween the el­e­ments and adds some depth to the im­age. But thanks to Fade, it’s not in­va­sive or over­whelm­ing.
