an anon asked me how i did the colouring on this graphic, and since my explaining skills are not the greatest thing ever a simple text post didn’t help very much: so here’s a more detailed tutorial! (quite heavy on text + photos)
hey there. ok so this tutorial was requested a few times but i didn’t had time before to make it. it’s a tutorial for this photoset and focuses on this gif:
it’d probably be the best to follow this tutorial if you already have some knowledge of photoshop. :)
like these two x and x?
when making a photoset in tumblr you have to keep in mind that there’s always that little negative space, so instead of making the width of your images 250 (one picture on tumblr is 500 so it would only make sense for a photoset to be 250+250=500) it has to be 245. because 245+245=490, which leaves 10px for the negative space.
when making a photoset with 3 images in a row the width has to be 160, because 160+160+160=480, which leaves 20px for two negative spaces of 10px (example)
when you’re not making a photoset, but just more images in one edit (like this one) the width for two images in a row is just 250, because 250+250=500 and there has to be no negative space.
but when you want three pcitures in a row it gets a bit tricky, because 500 divided in 3 = 166,66666666666666 (and like a million more sicks) so that’s why i then always make two pictures 167 and one 166, because 167+167+166=500
height really doesn’t matter and just depends on whatever you want. :) and thanks!
Ok, first I want to say that there are many different type of textures. And this tutorial is only going to focus on one, so if you want to learn how to make grunge textures: this is not the tutorial for you. Here is an example of the one this tutorial is about.
so, this is what you could call a tutorial. first of all I want to say that I suck at explaining. so if after this tutorial you still don’t understand it -I warned you. ready? do you have some food and good music? (because really, you’ll need that.) yes? here we go!
