3 One Tree Hill tutorials;;

OK so a couple people have asked me about my One Tree Hill colouring and seeing as I have absolutly NOTHING to do I've put three tutorials together.

»
»
»
all made in PS CS2 » using colour balance, colour fill, curves and selective colour » first two not translatable. the third is translatable.



Notes before starting: Remember, the amount of screen layers and opacities, and sharpness all depend on your base image. If your base image is sharp and clear and bright you may not need to sharpen it or add any screen layers.
and these are meant to be as a guide. Don't go copying exactly.
ONE more thing: Remember: These tuts dont work for all caps or pictures!
And now onto the tuts :))

•Color Fill. #F5DBDB. colour burn 40% opacity.
