TUTORIAL #5  
A HEADER TUTORIAL
Sex & The City

going from to

picture thanks to kerrsmith2306

using
- photoshop cs 2
- selective coloring
- gradient layers

fairly easy for someone who knows the basics in photoshop, not translatable i think.
this colouring works really well on light pictures!


step 001
take your image, resize it


step 002
duplicate it, set the blend mode to screen 80%
layer >> duplicate layer


step 003
make a new layer, fill it with an orange/yellow color, for example #f7c11d

set the layer to soft light 60%
layer >> new >> layer >> mode: soft light
now
select >> all
and
edit >> fill >> color >> #f7c11d


step 004
make a new color adjustment layer
layer >> new adjustment layer >> selective color
set the colors like this-
RED
cyan: -100
magenta: 0
yellow: +100
black: +30

YELLOW
cyan: -100
magenta: 0
yellow: -20
black: 0

NEUTRAL
cyan: +69
magenta: -21
yellow: -70
black: 0



step 005
add another color adjustment layer
layer >> new adjustment layer >> selective color
set the colors like this-
RED
cyan: -100
magenta: 0
yellow: +100
black: +30

YELLOW
cyan: -100
magenta: 0
yellow: -11
black: 0

NEUTRAL
cyan: +60
magenta: -2
yellow: -21
black: +20



step 006
now you can add whatever you want, text/brushes/whatever and you get the result!
i added this texture by lovelamp @ loveicon


and text, the font i used is 'union agrochem'

step 007
merge layers and save your header!
layer >> flatten image

and there you go!
