In this tutorial, I am going to demonstrate how you can create a gold skin effect in Adobe Photoshop. You will also be able to download a free template document to add the effect to your images immediately.

Enjoy and be creative!

 


 

**FYI**
In this video tutorial, I will be using Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.
