Step 14 Select all layers and duplicate them, then merge all the duplicated layers into a single layer. You can also do this using a keyboard shortcut (Cmd/Ctrl + Alt + Shift + E). Next, go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Move this layer so it will be beneath the Photo Filter layer, then change the blending mode to Screen with the Opacity set to 50%.
