Rome, Slings and Arrows, etc.

127 icons! Apparently I've been busy ;) Please comment and credit if you take any, and enjoy :)

[1-22] BSG (some spoilers for Season 4)
[23-36] House
[37-72] Slings and Arrows
[73-127] Rome

Some of the S&A caps are by alpheratz, some are by me. Rome caps are from all over the place, most especially Rhoswen, xof1013, and the rome_hbo community, with thanks! You can expect more S&A icons to come, and probably more Rome as well if I can locate more decent-quality caps (or break down and buy the DVDs...)

In which I keep up with popular trends

18 Dr. Horrible Pt. 1 icons and 9 Watchmen trailer icons, because I understand that's what the kids these days are into. In MY day, we didn't have none of these fancy-pants blogs, and Nite Owl was a doughy guy in an ugly costume, not the Goddamn Batman! (Oh man, Watchmen better not suck, or the entire internet might just snap and kill someone.)

(Dr. Horrible caps are by telltale and Watchmen caps are by meivocis)

3 Tutorials on colouring: Levels, High Pass

Three tutorials on colouring techniques, using CS3 - Levels, Selective Colour, and Curves are involved at various stages, so I suspect they won't be translateable, alas. I'd say these are intermediate to advanced; I won't be explaining really basic Photoshop terms and concepts here. These ideas can work for many dark or low-contrast images to help brighten them up, but I don't advise punching in exactly the same numbers I've used, because your results will depend on the base you're using. Instead, I'll try to explain what I was aiming for with each step, and you can adapt it to suit your own image. That said, I'd love to see what results you can come up with! I hope this is helpful - let me know if there's anything that's unclear.
