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

Looking to add some "purple" to your photos? Well I'll teach you. I will be using a photo of Kate Moss. Here's the before:

Here's the after:

To work!

001.First, open up your picture.

002.Do a ctrl+j, set the blend mode to Screen & change the layer's opacity to 70%.

003.Do a ctrl+j once again & set the new layer's blend mode to Overlay.

004.Copy & paste this gradient on top of your picture: (If it doesn't fit over your picture properly, simply do a ctrl+t & resize)

005.Set it's blend more to Lighten.

006.Copy & paste this gradient on top of the other gradient:

007.Set it's blend mode to Lighten.

008.And there you have your final product! :) Oh yeah & this works with any color, fyi.

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