I can't remember how I did it. I selected a round area with the elliptical marquee tool on a transparent layer and filled with a yellow color. I then blurred the edges by ?????? Can anyone tell me how to blur the edges so it doesn't look like a round yellow ball? Thanks in advance.

Did you right-click on the layer in question > Blending Options > set the Outer Glow options?

I tried that, but either I'm not setting the options correctly or it's not what I did. Can you give me an example of your option settings?

Below is a screenshot sample of what I did to copy your picture and the Blending Options for Outer Glow that I used. The bigger, center picture is what I created and the smaller picture to the upper left is a copy of the one you uploaded here.
