Your both images will appear like this in Photoshop. The original photo will be over the copy. Select the layer of the original image and move below the copy image ( with the preset effect)

With the copy image ( with the preset effect ) selected change the opacity to your favorable percentage. In my example I changed the opacity to 70% which game me exactly the effect I needed.


At the end make sure you change the option of saving as Photoshop file. Save your work to your desirable format, I usually use PNG. I hope this tutorial was helpful.
