For these made by tinini, I'd like colorings & how she got her text effects.

Made by dekolette Coloring please.

Well, with the text i'd say thats just an outer glow.

The one by dekolette it has a dark blue exclusion layer, a light blue soft light layer, and then copy merged and set to burn.

I'd probably ask the maker themselves so you can get a sure answer. Although I'd bet lots of people here would know enough:)

I agree with chemicaltrip, I'd say tinini uses an outerglow in PS (Layer > Layer Style > Outer glow>).. plays with the colour, blend mode, opacity, spread and size. I guess in some of them they're under other layers as well (like the Kimi icon looks like it under other layers which is why it changes colour). I'd say she increased the size and spread from the default settings, but she could have left them the size. If you've got PSP you'd have to duplicate the text layer, change the colour and give it a stroke width and then blur it. Another option would be to get a soft brush and on a new layer add some colour under the text and change the blend mode. I don't know how she did the colouring, but I'm sure she'll explain if you ask her.
Maybe the Fernando one has a purple-yellow gradient on it set to screen? and maybe a blurred 1 pixel border around the edge... If she doesn't tell you I could probably get something sort of similar because I have that picture.

How did I do my own icon... good question... lol. I'll find out. It's a combination of an exlusion layer, light brown gradient set on colour burn, a peach multiply layer and a black-white gradient map set on saturation. The rest is just screen and soft light duplicates of the base or the icon so far.

The text effects like already said are all outer glows. At a guess I'd say the one on the first icon is a yellowy cream color set to screen, the second one maybe a shade of orange or red set to linear burn, for the third onw maybe a shade of brown set to multiply, and the last one looks like a shade of brown set to linear burn. Also, play about with the opacity of the glows.

I could be wrong but I usually use similar colors for outer glows and my results nearly always look similar to those.
