Tutorial #3 - Ms. KClarkson =]

I've been playing around with some things, and Photoshop CS4, and wanted to share. Enjoy!



Program: Photoshop CS4
Difficulty: Easy/Medium
PSD?: Request

001. First step, do what you usually do with an image. Crop, sharpen, lighten it. In my case, I crop, sharpened and duplicated the base layer, and set it to Screen 100%

      

002.
Now we're going to do a photo filter layer. So go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Photo Filter. Set it to Filter: Deep Yellow, Density 25%



If you don't have Photo Filter, try playing around with a solid yellow fill layer.

003.
Now Selective Coloring! Use these settings:
Reds: -56 | 0 | +43 | 0
Yellows: +100 | 0 | -77 | 0
Neutrals: +28 | 0 | -17 | 0

The image no longer looks yellow, more greyish.



004. The next step is purely to make the image more reddish. So another selective coloring layer...
Reds: -100 | +36 | +100 | 0
Yellows: -100 | -100 | -100 |0



You can stop there, or do what I did. I used this texture, made by me. My computer's a bit weird, but all I wanted was a smoky gradient type of texture. You can use any at this point. I was just lazy so I made one really fast. Set it to Lighten 100%.



Hope you had fun with this layout! If you want the PSD, just comment. My comments are screened, so make sure to have email notifications turned on.
