How do I give a photo a softness like this one?? I have photoshop elements 6.
Looks like an implementation of the Orton Effect. Google it and you will get examples of how to do it in your program.
You can get a plugin for the Orton effect (and many, many others effects) at CoffeeShop Free PS/PSE Actions!: CoffeeShop Orton Action for PS/PSE! it's a great resource. Free (make donation to the blog author if you choose).
I agree google it, well this is really a sweet and soft picture
Sometimes you need to know what to google for though
You can hack this by making a second layer, bluring it and overlaying the original at about 30% opacity.
Also, OP, if that's not your photo, the moderators frown upon posting photos from other people, links are generally the way to go.
