    I appreciate you making this tutorial. The original stocks aren’t there, but the concepts are good, and I followed most of them before changing it to my own art.

      Hi! There will need to add an adjustment layer “Selective Color…” Go to Layer New Adjustment layer > Selective Color… or use icon on Layer panel. Excuse me, for an unfortunate mistake with the picture. Previously, it was. I hope you will be able to open this –
      http://s019.radikal.ru/i622/1409/52/05d6a1b383ab.png.

      If not, here are the settings for the adjustment layer:
      1. Preset: Custom, Colors: Blues.
      Settings for this color: Cyan:0, Magenta:0, Yellow:+14, Black:0.
      2. Preset: Custom, Colors: Yellows.
      Settings for this color: Cyan:+43, Magenta:+40, Yellow:+100, Black:0.
      Thank you very much! I really appreciate it! Once again, forgive me!

    I have not been able to locate a few of the pictures I needed to download for this project. The Fjords link shows a photo that says 11 photos. I’m pretty new at this but I have no idea how to get the 11 photos. They seem to be in one photo?

      Hi! I understand, but on the right side of the resource page is a great button “Download”. Click on it and save the file to your computer. Then use program to unzip photos (for example WinRAR) in the corect folder. Then locate the file of the photo with the name “IMG_0328” and place it in your work. That’s it! You can continue worked. Just the author made ​​a presentation that be in his archive. This is an advertisement :) I checked that the archive is desired photo and he downloaded from the site. I hope I helped you.
