How to turn this:
1: Choose your picture and resize
it to 80x80 (Or there approximately)
2: Sharpen your
image once (Filter >> Sharped >>
3: Duplicate your
image and set it on top of itself, and set new layer to screen.
Do this twice.
(This is now supposed to be very light)
4: Floodfill your image, #0A011F and
set to Exculsion 100%
floodfill, #E9E3C1 and set to Multiply 100%
gradient, set to Burn 40% (Gradient is by myself)
7: Now open a blank
white 100x100px canvas.
8: Set your
80x80 image on top of the white, centered in base image, and merge your layers (Layer
>> Merge Layers. Or Ctrl +Shift+E)
this other gradient, place this on top of your icon and set to Screen 100%
10: Add some text,
then you're done! I've used Palatino Linotype 6pt, all caps
*Please remember that sharpening always depends upon the image you are using.
