Today we are going to create digital bokeh effect in photoshop cs5, very easy to make and result will be awesome, so lets start making it.
Open a new document of your desired resolution, i am using 1280 x 1024 px resolution, then create a new layer and fill it with given gradient, or you can use your own colored gradient and some inner glow too
Thats what we have now
Now create a new layer and select Elliptical Marquee Tool and draw a circle and fill it with as shown
Simply duplicate this layer and spread all over the document as shown
Now Select all layers and merge them by pressing Ctrl+E then go to Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur and apply the given blur
Now go to Layers palette and simply change this layer’s blending mode to Overlay as shown
Now create another new layer, again select Elliptical Marquee tool and draw a smaller circle this time and fill it with white
Open Blending Options and apply 2 pixels white stroke
Now simply lower its Fill to 20%
Now again duplicate and spread this circle all over as we done before, then merge all layers and change blending mode to overlay as shown
Similarly make the bigger ones, and spread as you like.
Thats our Final Image
