Could anyone be so kind as to point me in the direction of good black and white tutorials? As in, how to enhance pictures by making them black and white instead of just desaturating? Hope that's not too confusing.

I was hoping someone could show me how to get this coloring, or something like it. Thanks in advance :)

*Edit: I fixed the link

I have seen many icons that look like a camera took them giving them black edges and a blur.

I have been trying for a while to do this WITHOUT a brush. And I have found a way! Believe me once you get the hang of this it becomes so easy you won't ever need a brush to do this effect again!

This was made with Photoshop CS

And example of an icon is this :

2nd tut : Fix the Color


Here's a little easy and primitive tutorial of mine, how to add some colour to "colorless" pictures. For this tutorial I chose one very delightfull pic of myself XD. I work with a color pic, the tutorial doesn't work with B&W pics, obviously.

text tutorial

I was asked for a tutorial on how to work with the text and so these are my two cents on, great discover, use of text. Of course, it's all purely subjective and meant to be kind of a guide line, but maybe can be helpful ;) the program I use is photoshop CS2, but I don't think there is something which isn't translatable.

my first tutorial

I've never done this before... but someone asked me how I made one of my wallpapers so I tried my hand at making a tutorial... I hope it works out and people can follow it...

Stamp / silhouette effect?

Hey all,
I'm not sure what you would call it, but how do you create this type of high-contrast effect?:

Is there any specific technique? Any tutorials you could point me towards?
Thanks so much.
(p.s. I have Photoshop Elements 4.0)

*edit* helped, thanks to those who actually did help!
