Tutorial: The Facelift

Level: Beginners (requires a very basic knowledge of Photoshop).

Photoshop version: 8.0

When it comes to creating art and icons, the most common problem I hear fellow Photoshop junkies complain about is lightening and sharpening images. Shows such as CSI with their dark lighting often leave us brightening images until they look washed out and sharpening them until their pixels become too fuzzy to work with. This tutorial deals with a simple technique which effectively gives your icon a facelift. It can be used on the darkest of images and adapted easily.
