The Orton Effect - Various Tutorials

I was inspired by a photo that was done using the ORTON EFFECT tonight so I decided to do some research to find out more about the technique and how it can be achieved in Photoshop. I figured that if I'm going to spend time on research like this that I should share with everyone. :)

The Orton effect is named after photographer Michael Orton. It is a unique expressive photo technique that creates a dreamy artistic feel in the photos with the combination of sharp and blur elements. The original effect was created using two slide transparencies stacked together. The same effect can be easily created using digital photography techniques and tools readily available today. If you are not familiar with this technique already, there are many excellent resources on the Internet. I've listed quite a few below...
