1st tutorial

My first tutorial!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Made in PS CS - not translatable (Selective colouring)


Stuff you need to know before making:
1.This tutorial wasn’t totally made by me; I found it somewhere quite a while ago (but I can’t remember who by. Sorry! If it’s yours, tell me :D)
2. This doesn’t work on ALL images, since it’s quite selective colour and saturation heavy.
3. Enjoy!!

1. Screen your picture (you can change the opacity when you’re done)

2.Next add a hue/saturation layer (image>adjustments>hue saturation) This really depends on what kind of picture you’re using; when we have added the selective colouring layer you might want to lower it a bit because you get those nasty over-saturated bits. I normally set mine to 20.

3.Then you add a colour layer #FFFC00 and set to soft light. I know it looks strange, but it will get better :D
