So I finally made a tutorial! My very first one! Though I have some homework and study to do... But the last few days I had been thinking it'd be rather good to help out fellow artists around the globe, and why not doing a small, simple tutorial explaining a little bit, about a process I sometimes use on my photography! When I was only starting I found myself very intrigued over the process of great artists, and also the retro/vintage feeling many used, but I never really found a tutorial explaining it, maybe there must have been one, but I never found that one! So I decided to mess with photoshop...and end up with this, it took time, yes, but it felt very good! So, I wanted to share my small knowledge of photoshop here, in this simple and very basic tutorial!
I really hope you find it as useful as possible, and if you use this tutorial please do add a small link to this tutorial, so others can use it too...^-^ At least the first time you use it^^
I used Adobe Photoshop 7.0, I'm not really sure if this works with other versions, but I guess it must be similar somehow...
Oh oh, and don't be afraid to ask anything you want to know, I'm always willing to try and give you a hand^^ Just post here any questions you have^^
--------- EDIT: Ah! It's been so long since I did this tutorial --well, for me, -- I know it was kind of hard to read because of the color, so I'm hoping now there will not be so many problems But of course, remember to FULL-VIEW!! Good luck!
The brush thingy? You just have to click on the layer you want to use, the brush in the box only means you're working on that specific layer (:
Second step: You click on the layer of your original picture. The tutorial was intended that way, but I think you could flatten it and play with the color balance too, and get a different effect. Though I advise the first thing if you're trying it out for the first time, then you can experiment with it.
Hope I made things a bit more clear, but be sure to ask again if you didn't understand something!
