The two different colouring effects I want to use in my icons I have seen only in photographs.

The first you can see examples of here and here. It looks desaturated, but it stays so rich that I'm thinking I must need to do something other than desaturate, surely?

The other effect I think is used pretty consistently by otherjoseph; a good example could be found here and also here.

Any ideas, guys?

I've got Photoshop CS & Paint Shop Pro 9, so instructions in either package would be gratefully received.

PSP tutorial(s)

I just added this to my lj, and thought it would be a good idea to add it here as well. I'm using PSP7, but I suspect this shouldn't be hard to translate to other software.

It's all pretty straightforward, but if you have any doubts, just ask. I got the first part of the tutorial from here: http://www.hypergurl.com/. The rest was stuff I figured out by fiddling around. The icon I'm using on this message was made using the graphic novel technique.
