tutorial: blue overlay by rocketlaunch tutorial: blue overlay by rocketlaunch
i will be using photoshop cs2 for this tutorial.

1. duplicate your background/image layer, and set it to difference at 35%.

2. go to layer > new adjustment layer > levels and fill this in:

rgb
input: 20, 0.87, 169
output: 24, 199

red
input: 60, 1.36, 255
output: 14, 255

green
input: 9, 1.08, 255
output: 0, 255

blue
input: 0, 0.83, 255
output: 25, 255

3. go to layer > new fill layer > solid colour and set the colour to #a8bcd5. click ok and set this layer to hard light at 40%.

4. merge your layers by going to layer > merge visible. now duplicate your background/image layer and set it to overlay at 100%. merge the layers again.

5. go to layer > new fill layer > solid colour again and set the colour to #cb9595. click ok and set this layer to darken at 30%.

6. go to layer > new adjustment layer > colour balance. check "preserve luminosity" and fill this in:

shadows: +10, +13, -2
midtones: +11, +5, -4
highlights: 0, 0, 0

7. finally, go to layers > new adjustment layer > hue/saturation and fill this in:

hue: +6
saturation: +15
lightness: -10

now merge your layers and you're done!

if you go to window > colour, you can click on the larger square (on top) in that window, then paste the hex codes in the box next to #. you can do the same with the larger square on top on the toolbox. hope this helps. (:

Hmm.. I'll have a look at the process again. I'm sure I wrote it up as I did it in photoshop. :/

What version of PS are you using?
