Could someone please explain to me the effect used in this icon? The red. I've been toying with it on Photoshop all day, but I just can't get the same effect. I tried my Rectangle Tool on Screen, and various red textures, but I can't get anything similar. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

my guess is a red texture on multiply. but i haven't see a texture that looks like that so i dunno.

maybe it's just a red rectangle with the opacity lowered so the greyscale image shows thru. or the greyscale is set to multiply.

It's a red rectangle set to multiply or darken (I used this effect earlier). I can't tell if the textured part if part of the background image or if it was added later.

You could have asked me, I would have told you!

All I did was put the image to greyscale, then I took the rectangular tool and filled it with a medium-light red, set that to multiply, BUT I set it under the two images, like I had added gradients and I always set the original picture (copied) over the gradients and the origianl picture (original layer) and set it to Soft Light, then I took a texture and set it to Linear Burn. I don't exactly remember what the texture was, but I hope that told you in plain terms, how I did it. :)

Ack. You know, it never crossed my mind to ask the icon maker. [head!desk] Anyway, I feel all inferior around people who can make such awesome icons. ^_^ Thanks for explaining it, you're a doll.

:) Aw, you're too kind! Well, if you are ever curious again, don't hesitate to ask, now you know I won't bite your head off.
