Learn how to make the following,
|From this||To this||Then 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
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.
