Photoshop question

Postby tjansen » Mon Mar 14, 2005 11:46 am

I have a question, on a lot of sites like espn or even some of the sigs on this site, there are images that seem to have a layer of color on top of them so the image behind it takes on that tint. The only way I've been able to do this is to desaturate an image and then put a layer of color on top and add some transparency so the image behind shows through, but it's not as good as what I've seen...can anyone offer some tips?

I think what you need to do is play with the blending options, like screen, color, luminance, burn, etc of the layers. I done it with the color layer behind the image and on top of the image. Maybe post some examples

The Ravens and Falcons sigs on this site also employ some kind of similar effects...

I think I know what your talking about. Just desaturate all of the layers you want colored and add a hue/saturation adjustment layer on the top. Or, just manually hue/saturate all of the layers that you want colored. Either way should do the trick. ;-D

with the Vick/Faulk one, I can usually achieve that by placing the image onto the background and setting the image to luminace (try cycling thru the blend options on your program)

with the second one, for me I'll put the layers above the image.

also you could try multiple layers of the same thing, sometimes one just isn't enough
