We want to keep it simple so we will add just a couple of adjustment layers to increase the contrast. First add Gradient Map adjustment layer with black and white as default colors and change it's blend mode to Overlay. Lower the opacity of this layer to 74%.

  1. They kind of obviously added and altered some things themselves... like with one of the splashes it was kind of obvious they used the clone tool to make it more realistic

  2. This is an awesome project I'd love to do with my class, but I can't download the files anymore....when I click on the link there's an error :(

  3. In Step 7 I think it's :'Repeat the instructions from step 5 but this time use file “19”' and not 'Repeat the instructions from step 5 but this time use file “9”'. ;) And btw Great tuto

  4. I really appreciate your struggle, awesome tutorial to learn photoshop.... simply amazing, i shared it on my site..

  5. This is really a great job thanks for share. Anyone get this type of clipping path service from us.

  6. This isn't really well explained and maybe you should edit that when it says open file 9 you should open file 19

  7. Step 7 should be file "19" not file "9". This is a great tutorial but it's a shame you didn't explain how adjustment layers work a little better. They are difficult to understand for most beginning Photoshop users.
