Tutorial #26 - Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki

New Tutorial, Hope ya'll find this useful :)

Learn how to make the following,
From thisTo thisThen this

Made in Photoshop CS . Using: selective color, channel mixer, levels +more

Step #1: Editing the Jensen & Jared original picture. I'm using this picture (If your image is huge this might take awhile.)
I'm going to get rid of the words "The CW" thats in the background of picture. Using the Soft round brush any size, using the green (#67B44C) which is the actually color of the background. I went around the background coloring all the "the CW" words there until the background is just green. ( Im sorry if this step TOTALLY confused you. )

Step #2: Crop and Resize image 100px X 100px

Step #3: Levels
RGB: Input levels: 13, 1.00, 255
Output levels: 0, 209

Step #4: Selective Color
Reds: +20, -19, +23, 0
Yellows: +32, +17, -33, +100

Step #5: Curves
Pointer #1: Input: 94 Output: 159
Pointer #2: Input: 46 Output: 75

Step #6: Color Balance
Midtones: +13, +22, -19
Highlights: +20, -23, -16
Shadows: +27, +11, +14

Step #7: Channel Mixer
Output Channel: Red
Soruce Channels:

R: 100
G: -26
B: -20
Constant: +8 & Merge

Step #8: Now Resize to 77px X 77px

Step #9: Open up a new Document size off 100px X 100px, and drag the Jensen and Jared picture that we just edited and resized onto the new document.

Step #10: Now get the bucket tool and fill in the background layer in with this color #05CA29, or whatever your background color is now. Then merger together & you are done. You can add text or a texture whatever its up to you.

Remember you don't have to follow this tutorial exactly the way it is, it all depends on the image you are using , so just play around with the settings until you are satisfied with it.
