Icon tutorial!

This is my first icon tutorial! :)) Yaayy.

Go from  to
I use PS6, so outdated, so I'm sure it'll work in others :P

1 - Take your base, duplicate it once, crop it to whatever size you want, etc. Then, sharpen it once and sharpen the edges once if you wish.  Then. duplicate that layer and set it to screen 100%

2 - New Layer -> Brightness/Contrast -> Brightness -29, Contrast +19

3 - New layer -> Fill with #66CCFF or perhaps any color you want.
Set it to Color Burn 37%

4 - New layer -> Selective Color -> 
Reds +16, 0, 0, +23
    Neutrals +22, -23, +18, -35
    Whites +24, -39, -23, -28

5 - Set to screen at 79%.
6 - Merge your layers and voila! You've got your icon :)
