  • made in Photoshop 7.
  • deals with selective colouring & the like, therefore only translatable to other versions of Photoshop.
  • if you're a photoship virgin, I don't recommend this tutorial.



    & here we go..

    Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur.
    Radius: 0.3px.

    3) Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves.
    RGB:
    Input= 62
    Output= 88

    4) Add another Curves layer.
    RGB:
    Input= 100
    Output= 138

    5) Layer > New Adj. Layer > Selective Colouring.

    CYANS

    Magenta: +16
    Yellow: +26

    7) Add another Selective Colouring Layer.

    YELLOWS
    Yellow: +100

    CYANS
    Cyan: +100

    Yellow: +14

    8) Layer > New Adj. Layer > Colour Balance.
    Colour Levels: +28 / 0 / -18

    9) Layer > New Adj. Layer > Hue/Saturation.
    Saturation = +15

    10) Layer > New Adj. Layer > Brightness/Contrast.
    Contrast = +10

    11) Layer > New Adj. Layer > Levels.

    Input Levels: 0 / 0.65 / 255

    12) Flatten Image [Layer > Flatten Image].

    13) Ctrl + A / Ctrl + C / Ctrl + V.

    14) Radial Blur [Filter > Blur > Radial Blur].
    Amount: 10

    15) Erase as much as you want, using a circular brush.

    16) Add a grungy texture [the one I used made by ownthesunshine, I believe.]
    & set the layer to Multiply, 75%.

    17) Flatten again.

    *If you want the icon to be brighter, just take out the grunge texture & your icon will be much lighter. I just added the texture because I liked it.
    This is what it looks like without the grunge texture:

    & I also made a userinfo banner with the same picture & colouring.

    Hopefully this was useful for anyone who needed help!
