How to Create a Minecraft Skin in Photoshop


In today’s tutorial I’m going to show you how you can utilize Adjustment Layers to quickly edit game skins, such as the one used to change the appearance of your Minecraft characters. I know a lot of my viewers are Minecraft players, so hopefully you can use this tip to quickly edit your character.

Tools used in this tutorial:

Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer: By using an Adjustment Layer, you’re able to change targeted areas of your photo without damaging the original layer. In this case, when the hue is shifted, only the selected areas are affected, and at any point in the future, you can either make changes to the adjustment, hide it, or delete it completely.
