Someone asked me how I did the coloring for the pictures in my last wallpaper so I thought I'd make a tutorial here for general reference. I like this coloring because it reminds me of how old photos sometimes start to turn that reddish pink color. I'm using PSP 9 but I'm sure it's translatable to other programs. This tut will be image heavy so I'm putting it under a cut.

This is my very first icon tutorial that I've ever posted. I like the greeny coloring and this looks nice on a variety of pictures.

We'll be going from this  to this .

1. Prepare your base. Crop, sharpen, lighten. My actual base was a bit darker, so I used a couple of screen layers on it. This really depends on your picture. If it's a dark screencap you may have to use a few screen layers. I used two on this one and then merged all.



2. New layer. Fill with #f2e4ce  . Set to Multiply, 100%.



3. New layer. Fill with #e2e2e2 . Set to Burn, 100%.



4. New layer. Fill with #02f2b5 . Set to Burn, 26%. Play with the opacity on this last layer a bit. It will depend on how green you want your icon to be and the lighting of the picture.

And voila, you're done!
