Icon Tutorial - Reddish/Pink Coloring - For PSCS2

Go From This: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting To This: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting




1) If your base is blurry, then sharpen. (I sharpened my base)
2) Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue/Saturation>Set saturation to 30
3) Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Selective Color>Download this preset and load the preset image
4) Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Color Balance>Midtones: //-40//+7//+10 Shadows: //+29//+5//+5
5) This step is completely optional! But in the icon I duplicated the base, dragged it to the top, desaturated it and set to softlight. (It really all depends on how the icon looks)



Examples Using Other Icons:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting (without desaturate and soft light)



Done! Hope you find my tutorial useful!!
