SGA - Elizabeth Tutorial

Huh, first tutorial ever. It's for Photoshop CS. Have mercy with me, okies?
We go from this to Image hosting by Photobucket


I used some of the steps from this great tutorial.

[01] Open the image, dublicate it and crop the dublicate to 100x100. I always use the crop tool. Width and hight are set to 3,53 cm, resolution 72. That's the icon size.

[02] Go to Filter -> Sharpen -> Sharpen.

[03] Zoom in until you can see the eyes clearly.

[04] Now, first use the Blur Tool (Mode: Normal, Strenght: 12%) and blur carefully over her skin. Avoid hair, eyes and lips.

[05] Then, switch over to the Sharpen Tool (Mode: Normal, Strenght: 10%) and move carefully(!) over her eyes and mouth. Try out what looks best.

[06] Dublicate the layer. Now move down to the first layer and go to Image -> Adjustments -> Auto Levels

[08] New layer, filled with this color Image hosting by Photobucket, set to Soft Light, opacity 45%.
Add a layer mask and use a soft round brush in black on the layer mask to go over the eyes and any other white or bright areas.
