Photoshop Tutorials

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.

Want to do a trippy effect? Well I will teach you an effect I like to call a "double image." Weird name, yeah I know, but bare with me! "D Chris Brown will be my subject this time. His voice is amazing! Okay well here's the before:

Here's the after:


001.Open your picture, love.

002.Select your Rectangular Marquee Tool (M).

003.Make a selection on the area you want to "double."

004.Do a ctrl+c, ctrl+v & move the newly pasted area to the side using your Move Tool (V).

005.Now select your Pencil Tool (B).

006.Make 2 lines in white or whatever color you desire around the "doubled" part.

007.Add some brushes & text & you're done! ")

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

I just used the "stroke" blending option instead of using the pencil. because i didn't get how to use the pencil step either. lol.
