C O N T R A S T






This tut was written on January 16, 2012.
It is written using PSPX; I'm sure the same effects are available in other versions.

SUPPLIES
A tube.
I'm using the work of Jennifer Janesko, formerly of CILM.
This artist is currently represented by CDO.

The following filter:
Graphics Plus - Contrast

Font of choice (I'm using "SF Gothican")

Set your background color to black; your foreground color to white.
Make a foreground gradient as follows:




Open a new image, 600 wide x 600 high.

Floodfill with your gradient.

Unclick the Invert button on your gradient.


Add a new layer.

Floodfill with the uninverted gradient.

Image - Flip.

Set the opacity of the top layer to 50.


Selections Tool - Custom Selection using the following setting:



Image - Crop to Selection.

Selections - Select None.


On both layers, Graphics Plus - Contrast using the default setting.
(Amount 241, Threshold 233, Intensity 97)


Layers - Merge - Merge Visible.

Effects - Edge Effects - Enhance.

Change the setting of this layer to Multiply.


Add a new layer.

Floodfill with white.

Effects - Texture Effects - Weave using 1, 3, 1, both boxes to black, Fill Gaps checked.

Layers - Arrange - Send to Bottom.


Highlight the top layer.

Add your tube, moving into position.

You may find you have to move the tube so that it shows better in your tag.
It depends on the tube you use.


When the tube is in place, add a blurry drop shadow (I used Eye Candy 5 - Perspective Shadow).

Layers - Arrange - Move Down.

Change the setting of this layer to Luminance (Legacy); change the opacity to 80.


Pick a color for your border and name.

Add a 2px Selection border, using your chosen color.

Add your name and all necessary copyright information.


For the avatar:

Duplicate your tag (Shift + D.)

Remove all unnecessary layers.

Crop to 150x150.

Add a new layer.

Add a 2px Selection border, using your chosen color.

Add your name (or initial) and all necessary copyright information.


Here is another example, also using the work of Jennifer Janesko:
