This is where I rejoice that I keep notes on the Layers palette, as it has been a while... Icon was made in PS CS3 on a Mac, and uses Curves and Color Balance.

This icon was a lot easier to make than it seems like it should be. Writing the tutorial in a way that shows the steps is actually more complicated. :) The icon was created using Photoshop CS4.

I created this image in PS CS4 on a Mac. I had originally created it without text, but it looked unanchored that way, so I added the text at the bottom as a last minute decision.

Oh dear. I usually upload the images for our challenges into my LJ Scrapbook, as I don't trust Photobucket with big, shiny pictures any more. However, I cannot get to the Upload page today, so I'm going to give you all the url to this week's challenge picture instead.

Sorry about this!

This week's challenge pic is here:

You may enter one or two icons for this challenge. Comment to this post with your icon(s) and their url(s), in the usual way. (Not sure what that is? Just ask me.) Please don't use these icons before the voting is completed. All submissions should, of course, fit the 100 x 100, 40K guidelines for LJ icons.

Remember, if you're the winner you will be required to post a tutorial, so make sure you remember what you did! You will also be required to vote if you enter.

I will close entries and post the voting next Sunday (18th April). Please consider that Saturday 17th, midnight your time, is the deadline for entries (though you can get away with later as long as your comment is here when I get to my computer on Sunday morning).

And don't forget your entries for Challenge #87, due in by midnight-your-time tonight.

This icon was made in PS CS3 on a Mac. It uses a couple of filters, which may not be exactly translatable.

This challenge proved to be a lot harder than I expected! Really, there's quite an art to choosing pictures for an icontest, and I'm still very hit and miss. Ah well, it is supposed to be a *challenge*.

In which this becomes this .

Icon was created in PS CS3 on a Mac, but provided you can do a Gaussian Blur somehow I don't think there is anything untranslatable involved.
