My first ever tutorial. That I can remember. *shrugs*

From  to

I'm tired of seeing all those curves and selective coloring and stuff! So a simple, translatable tutorial!

So, first we start offf with this:

Yikes. Dark, hard to see what's going on.

Set to screen 100%

Use the Autos: Auto Smart Fix, Auto Levels, Auto Contrast, Auto Coloring, etc etc, how it fits to your icon.

Use the brightness and contrast according to your icon. I used Brightness +15 and Contrast +11

Sharpen a bit if needed. Or maybe blur in some situations. Sharpen 40%

Use levels time!
Green- 0--1.00--246

Then I used this texture-

I set it to Lighten 100% over the icon. And tada!

So let's go through the process then!


Comments are love guys! Show me what you made!!!!! :)
