How to alter your photo for a dreamy effect

Layout by Angela Spangler, Creative Team MemberClick on image to enlarge.

Angela's instructions: I used a "Holga Simulator" action to alter my photo. It gives it a dreamy, interesting look. (A Holga Simulator Action for Photoshop can be found at Adobe Exchange
(http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm#loc=en_us&view=sn100&viewName=Adobe%20Exchange&avm=1)
Put the action in your "Actions" folder in the Adobe Directory, then "Load" the action in Photoshop. Play around with the different layers of the image to get it how you want it.
