Using Gradient Maps and Color Replace [Feb. 4th, 2006|09:57 pm]
Hufflepuff Graphic Studio

Hi guys! I was messing around with Photoshop CS last night while working on my dolls, and decided to see what some different settings were that I hadn't really used before. I gotta say, the experimentation worked out wonderfully!

Check out the icon I made:

Because I love you guys, I'm going to tell you what I did. Honestly, a lot of the tutorials out there for this kind of coloring never really work for me. They're too set-in-stone without a lot of room to adjust. But I found out how to do it that allows for adjustments.

Mind you, this is an intermediate to advanced tutorial. You ought to have command of basic design principles and also Photoshop tools before attempting it. (There's a fantastic series of tutorials on Photoshop basics over at itut).

Things I hope to have shown with this tutorial:

1. Color replacement is a simple way to turn ugly/clashing colors into matching colors without tons of work.
2. The "overlay" setting when duplicating layers brightens adds saturation to the colors while deepening contrast.
3. Gradient maps are way awesome for color effects and getting more specific results than layers on multiply or hue or whatever.

love, etc,

If you have any questions abot why I did something (I tried to explain it all! I hate when tutorials don't explain things), feel free to ask in the comments. I'd also be glad to see how you used this technique, or offer advice on your attempts, like for placement of the inset picture or whatever.
