A lovely anon asked me how I made this sidebar, and because they asked so nicely below the cut is a very detailed tutorial on how I made it. It isn’t that difficult once you know what you’re doing but I went into depth just in case you’re new to making graphics. If anything doesn’t make sense then please shoot me an ask and I’ll do my best to explain it more. I hope this helps some of you out and likes and reblogs are greatly appreciated. I’ve never done a tutorial before so I’m going to try my best with my first one.

Este es mi primer tutorial, bien fácil y sencillo sobre cómo eliminar el fondo de una foto. Utilizo este método para los manips o simples edits pero funciona mucho más para los manips o crackships. Quiero decir de antemano que no soy muy buena explicando o haciendo tutoriales pero he aquí mi primer intento. Este tutorial ha sido pedido por un anónimo, den reblog o like si les ha sido de ayuda.

making gifs with VLC player
  1. optional: The caps you retrieve are automatically sent to your ‘pictures’ folder. You can change this if you want. Go to tools > preferences > video > browse > select your folder.
  2. Change the hotkey for collecting screencaps. Go to tools > preferences > hotkeys > search for ‘snapshot’ > change it (I used 3)
  3. Open your video and skip to a few seconds before the part you want to gif. Click pause. Click the double arrow in the left hand corner three times (sometimes you may need to click four times). In the right corner it should say 0.33x (or 0.25x). Play.
  4. Hold the hotkey (the number, letter, etc. you chose in step 2) until the moment you want to gif is over. This is the final step using the VLC player.
  5. Open the folder with your screencaps and delete any access caps.
  6. Open photoshop and load your screencaps (file > scripts > load files into stack > browse). Crop and resize your caps.
  7. Open the animation window (if it’s not already open, that is) by clicking window > animation. Click the button in the top corner of the animation window and click the following: make frames from layers > select all > reverse frames.
  8. Now you have to select the frame delay time (how many seconds each cap will be visible for). Make sure all your frames are still selected (if not just select them again). Click any of the arrows (next to 0sec) and select other. I usually set it to 0.12 or 0.17 seconds. You might have to mess around to make sure the gif looks natural (i.e. not too slow/fast).
  9. Add a psd, text, etc.
  10. Save your gif (file > save for web & devices > gif (perceptual, pattern, 256 colours).
bright light and highlighted pink

How to do this:

NOTE: This is meant to highlight certain colors in the picture and brighten everything else. Click Read More for an example with other colors.

1. Open the photo your using, for me I’ll be using this one. I suggest saving every step, so you don’t lose any work.

2. Double click this:

3. Enter this hex code: #ed5e23. Then click OK.

4. Click that little curved arrow key, and then the color dropper. Take the pink from your picture. Your colors should look like this:

5. Click that little rounded arrow again; you’ll be needing the pink later.

6. Go back to your picture layer and press CTRL ALT 2. 

7. Create new layer, then fill with the color you picked.

8. Go to LAYERS and set to divide.

Your picture should now look like this:

9. Group both layers. Create a new group: this will be highlighting the pink in your picture.

10. Switch to the pink you picked in your colors. Start with a fill layer, and set opacity to 73% and fill to 100%. Set the Layer to Overlay:

11. Next you get to choose a gradient fill, I used this color: #f68e56. Set the Gradient Fill so it looks like this:

The style should be Overlay as well.

12. Next is the curves, which will be changed to these settings:

Set this to overlay as well. In case you were wondering, your picture should look something like this right now:

13. Next you should fix your color balance. I used these settings:




Set the layer to Darker Color

14. Last is Vibrance. Set Vibrance to -31 and Saturation to +2. Set the Layer to Lighter Color.

15. Finally, Set the entire group to overlay.
