[Very Simple] Icon Tutorial.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting >> Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

*For Photoshop 7 but could most likely be translated to Paint Shop Pro. If you are a beginner at Photoshop, I do not recommend this tutorial.



Okay, so we start off with our image:

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

You then crop it any way you want. I cropped it like this:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Duplicate your layer once and set the duplicated layer to Soft Light, 50%:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

New Layer: #fabff8, colour burn 66%:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting --> Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

New Layer: #bbe7f6, colour burn 100%:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting --> Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

New Layer: #f6ebac, multiply, 25%:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting --> Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Now that the colouring is done, I'm going to add a brush (made by ohfreckle), and I'm going to enlarge it from 100 to 250 so the edges are softer:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting --> Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting.

After you add the enlarged brush, the icon should look like this:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

and now I'm going to add text, using the font Print Clearly Dashed, which can be found here. I'm just going to simply type "Rachel" just to show what it'll look like:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

and there you have it. It's very simple once you get moving. Hope this helped anyone who needed it:)
