Change letter and button color of the keyboard
Open our photo. You can download it from here.
Copy "background" layer using CTRL + J and name new layer "copy"
Now we have to remove letter H. Zoom in on it, use Clone Stamp tool and remove letter H.
Now use Pen Tool (P), and select button on which you want to work. I'll use H button.
As precisely as possible (use zoom) draw line around that button.
After finishing with drawing go to the Path palette and select Load Path as selection. Go back to Layers palette.
Create new layer and name it "button_color". Click on Create adjustment layer and select Solid Color. I used this color #9d0808. Set Blending mode of this layer to be Color Burn. We have now colored our button.
Use text tool, type letter or symbol you want. Center it on the button. Rotate it just a little bit to the left. Right click on text layer and select Rasterize Type.
Now you can use Perspective tool or Warp tool (EDIT - TRANSFORM - WARP) and make it look like it is over the button. I used Warp tool and select Arch and move transformation point down.
Lower the opacity to 80%
and thats it.

May I publish your tutorial(s) on my website?
NO - DEFINITELY MAY NOT! I don't mind, of course, any form of back link to Digital Photo News tutorials section, but taking any one of the tutorials whole and supplanting it on your website is theft. If you really like the tutorials and want to advertise them, why not just hyperlink directly to their URL?
Is it possible to submit some of my own tutorials?
Yes! I love to add new and original tutorials to ever-growing database! If you would like to submit a tutorial, fill in the contact form with as much detail as you can manage and we'll get back to you with details. There's no need to stick to a specific format when submitting, as we will do all the boring work for you if needed... and fully credit you as the author on your tutorial pages if your submission is accepted.
Can I request a tutorial?
Of course you can! I make no guarantees i'll be able to get around to your specific tutorial in any given timeframe, but I listen to audience, and if there is demand out there for a guide to a specific technique/effect, I'll be only too glad to offer my assistance. Just ask via the contact form.
