At first, open an image which will be the background layer. Duplicate the background layer. Change the blending mode to ‘soft light’ now. Afterwards, go to Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur from above toolbar. Change the Radius to 9-10 pixels. Create a new fill or adjustment layer now. Then select ‘gradient.’ Select the first gradient option. Keep the first slider white and select a nice color for the second slider. You can change the color by selecting the color option. Change the blending mode to ‘screen. ’ If it is too bright then you can reduce the level of opacity which will suit best for your image. Hot Ctrl + Shift + N to create a new layer. Select ‘brush tool.’ Use the first brush size and re-size the brush. It will add orbs. Use both big brush and small brush. When finished, go to Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur from above toolbar. Radius 10 will do the job this time. Duplicate the background copy. This will make the effect more vibrant. Change the ‘gradient fill’ opacity if needed. This will sum up the whole process.
I hope that it will help you and from now on, hopefully you will follow this procedure more often in Photoshop and be an expert in this field in the future.
