TUTORIALS 09 & 10 ; A Walk to Remember; E.R.

to
USING PS7 - Translatable
{Color layers, Hue/Sat, Curves}



01. I used this screencap from dj_capslock by pinkpearl885. Crop and resize your base to 100x100. Duplicate your base, unsharp mask & set to Screen at 100%. Duplicate your base again & this time, set to Screen at 40%. (Varies depending on base).

02. Create a new layer and fill it with a pink (#FF9F9F) and set the blend mode to Soft Light at 100%.

>

03. Create a new layer and fill it with a blue (#7FD5E1). Set the layer to Color Burn at 100%. You can play with the color by using Hue/Saturation to your liking.

04. Now the color is looking a little dull, so create a new adjustment layer - Hue/Saturation. Increase the Saturation to +30. Leave the other settings alone.

>

05. Finally, I wanted some more depth, so create a new adjustment layer - Curves. I left the green and blue settings alone.
My settings: RGB RED.

RGB - Point one (I: 181, O: 193); Point two (I: 42, O: 32)
RED - Point one (I: 185, O: 199); Point two (I:61, O: 39)

USING PS7
{Curves, Hue/Sat, OPTIONAL: Selective Coloring}



01. I used this screencap from Striped Wall. Crop and resize your base to 100x100. Create a new adjustment layer - Curves. My settings: RGB

RGB - Point one (I: 205, O: 228)

02. Duplicate your base and drag it to the top. Sharpen once (if necessary) and set the blend mode to Screen at 100%. (Opacity will vary depending on base).

03. The base looks much brighter and nicer, but I wanted the color to be more intense. So, create a new adjustment layer - Hue/Saturation. Increase the saturation to whatever you'd like it to be; I set mine to +35.

**I am telling you now: Please don't increase the saturation to the point where it resembles a RADIOACTIVE fruit. -- This is bad. Be subtle and you'll see how nice it can turn out.**

>

04. The color and crispness looks a lot better. This next isn't really required, but I think it adds more depth and it brings the icon together. Create a new adjustment layer - Selective Coloring. Here are my settings: RED, CYAN, WHITE.
