Sometimes a solid background just isn’t enough and you want a little variance in the background color or lighting. This tutorial will show you a pretty simple way to make that happen in Photoshop. In order to use this tutorial you need to be able to mask out any foreground material so that it will not be altered by the gradient. If you are looking for masking tutorials you can use any of the masking tutorials on this website. I also sometimes use Topaz Remask 5, which is a paid tool, but it helps with some finer details. My hair masking in Photoshop tutorial using channels will do the same thing, it just takes longer.

This post title expresses my exact desires with regards to today’s photos. After erasing my photos not once, but twice after I had edited them, I finally just decided to throw them up and not tempt fate a third time.
My Slink Obsession is still going on and today I am wearing the lovely Rock Candy fingernails—some of my favorites at the event. And who can help but love any shoe that Betty Doyle releases? These sweet sandals are for the Slink Mid Feet.
At any rate, my mood went along nicely with this song from the Madden Brothers. And I love the video.

Caelan Hancroft’s Bella Notte set is at Fameshed this round and made me think of dusky evenings and fantastical places. Pangloss fit the fantastical place bill today.
The first round of My Slink Obsession starts tomorrow, August 5th, and will include a variety of avatar enhancement items for all your Slink body attachments. Get ready to be enhanced!
