Made in PSP8

From this… to this…

1. Create a base ~ I started with this CAP that I resized and cropped to get the dark base above.

2. Now to lighten it… right click on the background on your layer pallet and duplicate the icon and set it to screen, then duplicate the screened layer 4 more times. Yes, 4. LOL Now you have 5 screened layers. Next, copy the base and drag to the top of the screened layers and set to SoftLight and Desaturate it. (Shift+H and set the saturation to -100) Merge/Flatten all.

3. Duplicate your new base and set it to Hard Light set to 30%. Sharpen that layer if needed, and then Merge Flatten again.

4. Go to the Enhance Photo feature and choose Automatic Contrast Enhancement and set to Bias:Lighter, Strength:Mild and Appearance:Bold. Then go back to Enhance Photo feature and choose Automatic Saturation Enhancement and set to Bias:Normal and Strength:Weak and check Skintones Present.

Now to add some textures, etc. ** Disclaimer for images, textures, brushes, etc. – I’ve collected a lot of these over the past year or so, and have no idea what belongs to who/whom. If you see something that you created, or know who created it, let me know and I’ll give proper credit.**
5. Add this image and set it to Screen 100%.

6. Add this image and set it to Soft Light 100%.

7. Add this image and set to Multiply 100%.

8. Add this image and set to Soft Light 100%. Use the Move Tool to push the leafy thing to the upper corner. Now we don’t want that opaque part over her face, so take an eraser and erase the portion over her face and soften around the edges of that leafy thing. I used the Streaky brush, set to Size 20, opacity at 50.

9. Next add this image and set to Burn 100% and use the Move Tool to slide the text to the bottom on the icon.

And you’re done.

Going from THIS to this or this

Can be made in PS7 and PSP8

1. Create a base ~ I started with this cap made by my good friend, Deeboy, and resized it to 200x200. Then I opened a new 100 x 100 transparent box, and copied/moved my resized image onto it. I used the move tool to push it around to where I like and then Merge Flatten.
2. Duplicate and set the new copy to Screen 80%
3. Duplicate the base and move it above the screened layer and set to Hard Light 100%
4. Staying on the Hard Light layer - Sharpen it and soften using your preferred means – I use a Xero Plugin called Improver, Set on 5, 20, 5 *(see how to get it below)
5. Merge Flatten and at this point I have this

** Disclaimer for images, textures, brushes, etc. – I’ve collected a lot of these over the past year or so, and have no idea what belongs to who/whom. If you see something that you created, or know who created it, let me know and I’ll give proper credit.
6. Add this Dark Blue Gradient set to Exclusion 100%
7. Add this CreamyLavender Texture set to (PS7=Color Burn)(PSP8=Burn) at 100%
8. Add a new layer and flood fill it with a medium pink, #ff9999, set to Soft Light 35%
9. No offense to the photographer in this pic, but I only want Shiri. So I add a new layer, and cover the photographer with Black #000000. If using PS7 choose the default spatter brush 24, if using PSP8, choose the Dry Brush, size 50, both in Opacity 100. If you get a little of the black on Shiri, just erase it.
10. Add this smokey image and set to Screen 100%. Slide it over to the left just a little bit, which will leave a black stripe down the right side, like this Then use the Smudge Tool, Size 19, Mode Lighten, Opacity 50, and pull the gray over the black stripe to extend the grayness. (I hope that made sense) SmudgeExample
11. Add this copper/light gradient, set to Hard Light 85%
12. Add this gray box and set to (PS7=Color Burn)(PSP8=Burn) at 100%
13. If you like, add some text. (I used PSP8 for this step) I wrote Shiri in color #FEE6BC using Enviro font in size 11.
And you’re done…
------------
For the second variation – just delete Steps 6’s Exclusion layer; Change Step 11’s copper gradient to Color(in PS7) or Color Legacy (in PSP8) 85%; then change Step 12’s gray box to Overlay 100%; last, add this brush in color #6B291B, set to Hard Light 30%
