Sparky wallpaper tutorial

Uhm, okay, this is loooong. Not so much picspam but more a novel *coughs* but it's easy to follow (if you believe my sister *grins*) ^-^

We will use this, this, this and this to make this wallpaper.

A/N: In the Greman version of CS is Ctrl -> Strg // The pics are from http://sg-atlantis.emedian.net/, zerofantasym and capped by myself // texture by artphilia (thanks ukumai ^-^)

John pic:

01) Resize (Height: 768 px)
02) Sharpen once
03) Blur Tool (Mode: Normal, Strenght: 12%)
04) Dublicate twice
05) Desaturate both copies
06) Set first copy to Screen (Opacity: 100%), second copy to Soft Light (Opacity: 100%)
07) Merge all Layers (Shift+Ctrl+E)
08) Dublicate the layer
09) Set it to Hue (Opacity: 100%)
10) Go to Image -> Adjustments -> Photo Filter. Choose from the Drop Down Menu Sepia, Density 100%.

This is the result

That wasn't my plan but as I played around and saw the result I was more than happy ^-^ But it doesn't work with all pics *sigh*
