Program: Photoshop CS5
Difficulty: Super Easy
This is my second Icon coloring tutorial & as you can tell I am obsessed with bright colors & coloring, but sometimes I crave for old time pictures (a pure sacred color + a color of a dark night with a hint of grey). So I decided to make this simple easy tutorial, without going through curves & levels layers.
Going from to
1- Crop, sharpen & desaturate your image by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+U.
2- Add a solid color layer, fill it with #e7e7e7 & set it to Overlay Opacity 100%.
* Some images might appear too bright after this step, if so reduce the opacity until you get a proper result.
3- Add another solid color layer, fill it with #dbdbdb & set it to Multiply Opacity 25%.
4- Add a selective color layer & set it to Normal Opacity 100%
Black: 0, 0, 0, +100
* If you want the black to be more intense, duplicate the selective color layer.
And we're done =)
I would like to see your results ^-^
