Icon Tute #1- Star Wars wedding

thanks everyone for the help with the pics. i was using rich text and it messed with the codes.... <3 i think i got it now... ~~~~~~~~~~~ This is my first tutorial- nothing too fancy, and its pretty easy as well. We’re going to be making this icon Image hosting by Photobucket Starting with your main pic - we’re using this one – Image hosting by Photobucket Crop to square, and resize to 80x80. Image hosting by PhotobucketDuplicate the pic. Sharpen the new layer and set it to soft light (found in blending options in CS2, if you aren’t sure. Right click on the thumbnail in the layers window). Image hosting by Photobucket Open a new blank image, 100x100. Drag BOTH layers onto it and position them in the top corner like this- Image hosting by Photobucket (note- on mine, part of the pic is off the canvas, coz it looks better this way. Position yours where you want it, and just adjust the sizes of the other images accordingly) Open your second image. This will go along the bottom of the icon. Resize it so that the width is 100 pixels, with proportions constrained so it doesn’t stretch. Image hosting by Photobucket Drag it onto the icon canvas, and arrange it under the first pic. Don’t worry if it overlaps a bit. Image hosting by Photobucket Open your third image. Select the part you want and crop it down, resizing it to a width of 30 pixels (although this may depend on how much of the first pic is actually on the canvas). Image hosting by Photobucket Drag this onto the icon and position it. Image hosting by Photobucket Almost there! Now for the brush work. I used a border brush by Sanami276 from her Decorative Borders 03 set- found HERE. And we’re using brush number 01. It looks like this- Image hosting by Photobucket So, to add the brush border- open a new layer on top of the rest of the icon. Select your colour (I used ‘Pastel Yellow’), select your brush, and stamp onto the icon until you’re happy with the colouring. Image hosting by Photobucket Now all you need is text, although it does look nice without it. Pick your font and a colour that tones in (you know how to add text!). I tend to like flow-y pretty script fonts on icons like this… (I used ‘Rage Italic’ at 30pt, in a shade slightly darker than the pastel yellow of the brush, set to ‘Crisp’) Image hosting by Photobucket And you’re done! Good luck and have fun :)
