frosty lips and pale skin

how to go from this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us to this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

all done in psp 7 but should be the same in other programs



first we have our image already resized Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

go to Layers>Duplicate and do this twice

make sure the top layer is active

then go to Effects>Blur>Gaussian Blur and set it to 2.00 like this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

then you should end up with this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

then go to the layer palette and select overlay on the top layer like this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

your image should now look like this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

click layer two to make it the active layer.

now go to Colors>Adjust>Channel Mixer and make sure your settings look like this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

now it should look like this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

go to Layers>Merge All(Flatten)

then add any other effects or text you would like to you icon

and we end up with this Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

play around with it,changing the opacity of the top layer will change the finished outcome
