How to make a Spraypaint Image

Hi everybody,
This is my first tutorial here and I’d like to tell you how to make a Spraypaint Image.

So, this is ‘How to make a Spraypaint Image for Counter-Strike 1.6’

Necessary software:
» Adobe Photoshop

Step #1
 Run Photoshop.exe

Step #2
 Create a document (CTRL + N or File > New…) with these settings:

Step #3
 Now you are ready to paint.

 There is one important thing! Color mode was set to ‘Grayscale’. It means you can use only 2 major colors: black and white. You can also use gray, light gray, dark gray etc.

 What’s more, Black (RGB: 0 0 0, HEX: #000000) will be transparent when you spray your image in CS, and White (RGB: 255 255 255, HEX: #FFFFFF), on the opposite, will be solid (it will be replaced with the selected colour. E.g. orange, yellow, blue, light blue, green, red, brown, light gray or dark gray). Gray (RGB: 128 128 128, HEX: #808080) will be 50% solid, Dark Gray (RGB: 64 64 64, HEX: #404040) will be 25% solid etc.

To be honest, I was stuck for ideas so here is my example...

Looks awesome, doesn’t it? :D
Well, my goal is just to show you the basics so it doesn’t matter what image I’m using.

Step #4
 This is the last step in Photoshop. Save the image (SHIFT + CTRL + S or File > Save as…) as *.BMP:

 With these BMP Options:

Step #5
 Move your *.BMP image to ‘valve/logos’ and run Counter-Strike. Open ‘Options’, select ‘Multiplayer’ tab, choose your Spraypaint Image and set the colour:

Test it!
