This is the coloring i used on the gossip girl icons
& on those Supernatural ones btw.

Step one:
get your screen cap and make your icon.
and then do whatever to it lol.

Step two:
some may not need to do this only do this step if your using
a dark image but with light images it's fine.
Duplicate base and set to screen at 30%

Step three:
This is the only curves you will use in this.
this should light up your image with dark and non dark.
Input: 67
Output: 95

Step four:
Only color you will use in this tut.
we will be using a bightish green color

i'm letting you know that it may look kinder eh on some
screen captures so you may need to change the percent around about 10%

Step five:
