take a round brush, 133 px diameter and 0% hardness. with a soft gray colour (i used #dcdcdc), click once or twice in the upper left hand corner or wherever you want. actually you could skip this step if you wanted to, its not that important. set this layer to lighten at around 12% opacity.

you can download the psd here or here
