Linkin Park Pictures
Hey all,

I'm not sure how beginner this question is as I'm not a beginner, but I tried creating these effects using GIMP and PSP and completely failed last night. I'm looking to create photos with the effects as shown at the two pictures below. I'm looking for a tutorial similar to those shown on gimp tutorials.net. Once I get the basics down and one photo done successfully, I'll be able to take off and do a ton of photos with these effects. I took a bunch of photos last night and am ready to edit them. The pictures are below. Please let me know if you know the best way to do this in GIMP and if you could past a tutorial or PM me with one, that would be awesome. Thank you!

This is the one I'm concerned about doing more. Tried last night and failed miserably.
   

I'd like to do this one too, but not as much as the one above.

RE: Linkin Park Pictures
Nothing very hard on the first one if the original photo already has the right lighting. What are you doing? Where are you failing?

RE: Linkin Park Pictures
I can't get the hue correct. I see that the lighter part of the picture is the middle, and it fades darker is it goes out. I can't get a good round mixture of light around the face.

RE: Linkin Park Pictures
The light part is slightly unsaturated (if you think in HSV rather than RBG, the Hue component is fairly constant, what changes in the saturation and value)(use colors/component/decompose on that sample picture to get a picture with layers for H, S and V). But this isn't due to photo editing (or by a grand master), but to specific lighting used when the photo was taken..
