The Making of Piper Halliwell-Wyatt:
take your picture from Marilyn. Remember this is all in your picture. Not on the blank header yet.
A) Auto Contrast : Image - Adjustments - AutoContrast (Alt Shift Ctrl L)
B) Sharpen : Filter - Sharpen - Sharpen. Once only.
C) Make a blank canvas size 600x350. Drag your picture that we just contrasted and sharpened over to the blank canvas and position it where you want it.
D) Duplicate your base, Desaturate it, then set it to Overlay @ 50%
E) Duplicate it again. But this time set it to Linear Burn @ 15%
She is so damn pretty!
F) Duplicate it one more time. Last time, I swear. Set this copy to Vivid Light @ 50%.
G) Go up to Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur -> Drag the bar up to 74.3
Now we get into a bit more, but subtle coloring.
H) Add an exclusion layer. #020D30
I) Apply a Gradient Layer on top of that. The hex for the gradient I used: F1C4A3-B58466, both at 100%. Set the gradient to Hue @ 50%
J) Add on one more color fill layer #FBF0A5, set this to color burn. Make sure you decrease the FILL to 50%, not the opacity. You'll get two total different effects that what we want to achieve.
K) Add a dry paint brush by nardasarmy here and any text you want. I didn't add any text and there you are. A beautiful Piper Header:
