Teh Mite and his miraculous Modified Soften
A nice simple tutorial here so you all know how to go from crappy grainy, over sharp images to very easy on the eye beauties.
For this image I will start with an image of the mercurial Carlos Spencer performing his trademark banana kick.
Now thic could look a lot better with a bit of softening.
1. Firstly open the image in Photoshop CS and duplicate the layer. (CTRL + J).
2. Now go Filter > Artistic > Watercolour and use these settings;
3. Now Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and use these settings;
4. Now for the filter select soft light and set the the opacity to around the 65% mark and you should have somthing similar to this.
Play with your filters and opacity to get different effects, and then it's piss easy to make lots of very professional looking pictures.
this has been a Teh Mite Tutorial. Rip it off and I will eat your first born children.
