Milo Banner Tutorial (Photoshop)  
Another update from me, can you believe it! I promised to make more tutorials so thought I'd take a stab at writing a tut for this. thats if your interested. Hope you like, ask me anything. Hopefully relating to the tut! I've only ever written 3 tutorials so bear with me ;)

Program: Photoshop
Fairly Easy. Some knowledge of photoshop required.

Take your picture of the lovely Milo. Duplicate layer and set the second layer to screen. This will make it much brighter. If its too bright lower the opacity.

Layer-new adjustment layer-hue/saturation. I set the saturation to 25 This brings out the oranges.

Layer-new adjustment layer-curves. Curves rock. Curves bring out the much needed colour so the trick is to experiment. I normally use the same curves and I have them saved, editting them according to pic. This is what I used:
RGB Input 145 Output 165
Red 
1st: Input 2 Output 0
2nd: Input 29 Output 3
3rd: Input 122 Output 161
4th: Input 203 Output 222
5th: Input 252 Output 255
Green
1st: Input 0 Output 5
2nd: Input 29 Output 3
3rd: Input 112 Output 138
4th: Input 188 Output 201
5th: Input 253 Output 253
Blue
1st: Input and Output both 0
2nd: Input 39 Output 5
3rd: Input 128 Output 135
4th: Input 191 Output 198
5th: Input 253 Output 255

Click OK

PHEW! Curves take so long which is why i always save any good ones i find.

I get this:

It already looks better doesnt it!! But if you want more colour and texturey goodness lets do it!

When it comes to textures I open up about 5 to find the perfect texture. Sometimes the colour isnt what I want, its the effect.
I used this one:


Made by the awesome abernathi
Whilst the colour is definitely pretty I set it to colour burn. It gives the image a shadowy sort of overlay. I move it around a lot. 


Now I wanted a polaroid effect so I search in my folders and find one, made by masterjinnThis one is perfect!!


I set it to lighten over it all, move it around. If some of the white bits covered Milo I erased it with the eraser. 

Adding the text and Ta DA!


Hope this is helpful, and that I explained well :)
