Photoshop Tutorials

I did this tutorial in Photoshop CS3 Extended which is why some of you may have problems. However, that does't mean this tutorial won't work in other versions of Photoshop. Just try it out.

Ever wanted a nice, glowing tan or make your hair look healthier? Well now you can by following my tutorial.! :) For this tutorial, I will use a photo of Lindsay Lohan (when she was pretty & not anorexic. :0)
Here's the before:

Here's the after:

Let's go!

001.Open up your photo in Photoshop.

002.Duplicate your background layer by pressing ctrl+j.

003.Add a gaussian blur by going Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur.

004.When the pop-up comes up, set the radius to 5.

005.Your image should look like this now:

006.Now change the blending mode of your top layer to "overlay."

007.And tada! you have your final product!

If you got lost or have any questions, comment the tutotial & I'll get back to you as soon as I can. :D
