Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge

For this tutorial, you can use GIMP, Photoshop, PSP, or any other software to edit images. Hope you enjoy!

Basically, you can use any photo editing software. I use GIMP. Its free and its really good.
So, first pick either 3 VERY similar images or just 1 image. For this tutorial, ill be using 1 image. But you can do the same with 3 similar images.

1. Paste the image into your editor, & desaturate it(make it black & white).
2. Duplicate it 2 times, giving you 3 new layers.
3.THIS IS IMPORTANT: Make a new layer, & put it above the last layer going down. Fill the layer with the color #32ffff.
4. Set the layer properties(where it says Normal) to Addition. Merge the colored layer & the saturated image below it. The blue part is done.
5. Move the completed blue image TO THE VERY TOP. Make a new layer above the desaturated image that is last again.
6. Fill the layer with #ff3232. Set the layer properties to Addition, & merge the two layers.
8. Move the three images around to where it goes blue, red, gray or whatever pattern you want.
*Do not touch the saturated image left! Its supposed to be plain.

My examples:

Hope that was easy enough!(:
