I'm using this photograph of Taylor Swift from Photobucket:


FIRST: Crop the section of the photo you are going to use. 100 px by 100 px. Also do any colour correction you want.


My crop looks like this:


SECOND: Create a new layer and fill with e79f74. Set to Overlay.


THIRD: Duplicate your base layer. Convert to Black and White (Ctrl+Shft+U) and set to Normal, 44%.


FORTH: Create another new layer at Screen, 43%. Fill with 005151.


FIFTH: Duplicate your base again. Set to Soft Light.


SIXTH: Make a circle w/ the selection tool on a new layer.


SEVENTH: Select your fill bucket tool and color the circle w/ black. Then deselect (Ctrl+D). (There's a mistake in the photo. The red font should just be Normal. We haven't done anything with the style yet.)


EIGHTH: Change the layer style to Color. Now move the circle wherever you want.


NINTH: Now we'll blur the circle. Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur... Settings: 2.5 pixels.

TENTH: Create one more new layer. Fill with 080f38 and set to Exclusion.


OPTIONAL: Duplicate your base again and drag to top. Set to Soft Light.



RESULTS:
TEN STEPS:


OPTIONAL STEP:



Enjoy! :D


Stealing is wrong.
