First tutorial ever! How exciting. Requested by xg3n.

From Image Hosted by ImageShack.us to Image Hosted by ImageShack.us in three simple steps!

I got this cap from screencap-paradise.com. Resize, crop, and then you'll get Image Hosted by ImageShack.us this(well, with whatever cap you're using). After that, duplicate this layer two times, and set the first to multiply and the second to screen. Your icon will now look like Image Hosted by ImageShack.us this.

Now, go to layer>new fill layer>solid layer, and fill your icon with the color fde6cb Image Hosted by ImageShack.us and set it to color burn. Now, your icon'll look like Image Hosted by ImageShack.us this.

After that, go to layer>adjustment layer>selective coloring. The selective coloring is:

Cyan: -50
Magenta: -20
Yellow: +60
Black: +10

Cyan: -60
Magenta: -20
Yellow: +70

Cyan: +30
Magenta: +5
Yellow: -5

And, that's it! You're done. Thank you very much to xg3n for recommending the tutorial, it's nice to know that you guys all like these! And let me know what you think about this, like if there's anything that could be better. Thanks again!
