promise me, don't laugh at my grammar. *facepalm* i am not good explain this for tutorial. Actually it's my first time.

If you want to know how I made this. so go there.

I just try do my best so I did my own colour on banner.
so let me type this..
Ahh okay go there Just I can say easy steps to do.

I USE GIMP. whoever could give to try.

Step 1: get your pictures you want to use on banners.
Step 2: go ahead do your own blend it whatever you want it.
Step 3: then when you done with after you need to duplicate the base once.
Step 4: go ahead use layer say "screen" whatever you feel happy with little bright.
after that go ahead merge down it.
Step 5: go ahead do with Sharpen.
like that mine do with Sharpen about 40%
Step 6: make new 3 layers as Transparency.
Step 7: put first layer, use this color #decfac
second layer, use this color #d4e1f6
third last one layer, use this #b14343
Step 8: first layer with color; do goes with Mode: "Soft Light" - 50%
then second layer goes with Mode: "Burn" - 50%
now going to be last third layer goes with Mode: "Difference" - 30%
then go ahead all them to do merge down together.
then that's all finish.

that what it look like.


good luck. ^_^

[color=ffff75]Nice, simple coloring tutorial!! I love these kinds of tutorials, just because I like learning new ways to color my banners, and because I love to play around and see what other combinations I can come up with! :D

I really liked the result from this tutorial. It works greater with darker images I think, but you can make it work of lighter one's, too. Here is my result:



Thanks for the tut! :D[/color]

This is a great tut, I'm so bad with colors and bucket fills so I usually tend to only use textures... but this was very helpful!!


I tweaked it a bit and added a goldeny yellow...

thanks again! :)
