Hello all experts.

Not sure how to explain this other than to show you an example as per the attached picture below.

See how there is a spotlight/halo effect in the background of the image that shows up only behind the image...??

Can someone please show me how to do that....??

I have seen it on virtually every website out there but have no idea how to go about doing it.  BTW, I am  a total Photoshop Elements noob.....[:0(

Thanx in advance.


How to create the halo effect that can be seen behind the image using PS Elements...???
