Launch GIMP & Organise Its Workspace & Palettes

Open your Start Image onto GIMP’s workspace - Ctrl then O.

Now, from the top menu, choose Filters then Render then Clouds - and then choose Fog.

And from the subsequent Fog dialogue box, set the Fog Colour to White - then click OK inside the set colour dialogue box - as demonstrated below.

Then change the (Clouds) Turbulence to 1.5, and click OK

Now, from the Layers Palette, reduce the Fog Layer’s Opacity from 100% to around 65%, as demonstrated below.
