Wallpaper Tutorial: Michelle Yeoh

Learn how to make this:

In only 13 steps, with PS Elements 4.

Hey there! Well, I was totally bored, so I decided to make a tutorial for my new Wallpaper. (I just HAD to do something with these BEAUTIFUL pictures <3. Found here at netnessie) I’ve made it in Photoshop Elements 4.0, and it is so easy, you will laugh! There are just layers. Nothing else. So, let’s begin. *g*

Step 1:
Take your pictures, paste them in a new 1024x768 document, and blend them nicely together. (My base)

Step 2:
Duplicate your base. Apply a Gaussian Blur, Radius 1,7px. Set this layer to Soft Light. Merge your layers. (Screencap)

Step 3:
Now to the colouring. Duplicate your base and set it to Screen 39%. (Screencap)

Step 4:
Duplicate your base again, drag it to top, and set it to Soft Light 100%. (Screencap)

Step 5:
Make a new layer. Fill it with a strange middle blue color (like #0007F3) and set it to Exclusion 43%. (Screencap)

Step 6:
Make a new layer. Fill it with a dark purple color (like #690478) and set it to Soft Light 68%. (Screencap)

Step 7:
Make a new layer. Fill it with a strange green (like #1C390B) and set it to Exclusion 70%. (Screencap)

Step 8:
Make another layer. Fill it with a light middle grey/purple whatever (like #CAB5FF) and set it to Color Burn 31%. (Screencap)

Step 9:
Make a new layer. Fill it with an orange/tan color (like #FFDFB5) and set it to Multiply 100%. (Screencap)

Step 10:
Duplicate your base. Drag it to top, desaturate it, and set it to Soft Light 100%. (Screencap)

Step 11:
Duplicate that layer and merge everything together. (Screencap)

Step 12:
Time for some text. Take your eyedropper tool, and choose any color you like from the picture. Mine was #4d1636.  Then add text in any font you like. I wrote “Dance, move, be born” (with three different text layers) in “Barbarjowe Pisanki”. (Screencap)

 Step 13:
Duplicate your layer(s) and move it/them until it looks like on the picture. Change opacity to 30%. (Screencap)

And THIS is our result. You're finished! Congrats! Was really easy, wasn't it? I’d love to see your outcomes!
