To get Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us:
  1. Start out with your base at its full size, meaning that your base should be the full picture.
  2. Sharpen once.
  3. Duplicate the image once.
  4. Go to Filter > Blur > Lens Blur. Make sure your Radius says 15 and your Threshold 255. (Your Threshold should be 255 by default, but you may have to change your Radius.) Hit okay.
  5. Change the blend mode to Overlay.
  6. Open up a new file, set the Width at 700 and the Height at 500, and hit enter.
  7. Hit PrtSc (Print Screen) and then paste the image into the new file. (Make sure the image and not the new file is the one on top!)
  8. Use the Move tool to set the image up the way you want it to be.
  9. Save this new file and reopen it.
  10. Duplicate the base and set the blend mode to Soft Light.
  11. Create a new fill layer using #344737. Set the blend mode to Soft Light.
  12. Create a new fill layer using #f3d14b. Set the blend mode to Soft Light.
  13. Create a new fill layer using #fcb47f. Set the blend mode to Soft Light.
  14. Customize it however you want, and you're done!

To get Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us:
  1. Follow everything from before, up to Step 13.
  2. Duplicate the base once again, and bring it to the top.
  3. Desaturate the image, and then set the blend mode to Lighten.
  4. Customize it however you want, and you're done!

*Do not copy exactly.
*Play around with the opacities of the blend modes to get different effects.
*Play around with the colors, making them a tad lighter or a tad darker.  Images that you put your personal touch into are always better than exact duplicates!
*Enjoy!
