  1. I feel like these instructions are false and do not work at all. This is not a proper way for doing what you are trying to attempt in photoshop. maybe you should go back and check the steps that you posted on here and retry because it doesn't work and it doesn't turn out like the pictures you did. Unless your forgetting to post a step. -_-

    1. The instructions should work for Photoshop CS5. Is there a step that you're stuck on?
