This is my first icon tutorial for GIMP, hope you like it! (my friend imilandoosuggested to post it on LJ D:)
You can translate it if you want. I'll write it in English and Italian. D:
 >>>>> 


English:
  1) Crop your image to 100x100. Now duplicate your base and set it to Overlay 100%;
2) Create a new layer and fill it with #ed7f91. Set it to Soft light 100%.
3) Layer > New from visible. Now we have to go to Colors > Color Balance and put these values:
Shadows: 0, 45, -20
Midtones: 100, 9, -29
Highlights: -37, -23, -8

4) Layer > New from visibleLet's go to Colors > Components > Channel Mixer and set these values:
Red 112.1, -9.1, -8.2
Green 0, 84.8, 38.8
Blue 12.1, -3, 121.2

Make sure to check Preserve luminosity 
5) We're going to create three new empty levels. We have to fill the firs one with #50c150 and set it to Saturation 45,5% (It depends on images!); let's fill the second one with #47308f and set it to Lighten only 85%; the third one will be filled with #636161 and set to Lighten only 76%.

6) Layer > New from visible. Let's go to Colors > Auto > Equalize. Set the layer to Darken only 100%.

Your result will depend on the image. :)

Italiano:
1) Ritagliate la vostra base a 100x100. Se avete preso un'immagine e l'avete incollata in un ritaglio 100x100, ancorate il livello.

2) Duplicate la base e settate su Sovrapposto 100%

3)Creiamo un nuovo livello, riempiamolo con #ed7f91 e impostiamolo su Luce debole 100%.

4) Livello > Nuovo dal visibile. Andiamo su Colori > Bilanciamento colore e settiamo i parametri:

Ombre 0, 45, -20
Mezzitoni 100, 9, -29
Alte luci -37, -23, -8


5) Livello > Nuovo dal visibile. Andiamo su Colori > Componenti > Mixer canali e inseriamo questi valori:

Rosso 112.1, -9.1, -8.2
Verde 0, 84.8, 38.8
Blu 12.1, -3, 121.2


Ricordiamoci di flaggare Preserva luminosità.

6) Creiamo tre nuovi livelli: il primo lo riempiamo con #50c150 e lo settiamo su Saturazione 45,5%; il secondo lo riempiamo con #47308f e lo impostiamo su Solo toni chiari 85%; l'ultimo lo riempiamo con #636161 e lo settiamo su Solo toni chiari 76%.

7) Livello > Nuovo dal visibile. Andiamo su Colori > Auto > Equalizza e settiamo il livello su Solo toni scuri 100%.

Wow, this was really helpful in both languages (I'm Italian too) - but since my program is installed in Italian, the latter was more helpful, because of the software keywords. Thank you so much for sharing, I have learned something new thanks to this tutorial! :)
I've begun making icons and the like, but have only been doing it for a few months, so I have a LOT to learn, and these tips were very helpful! ;)

First graphic I've tried my hand at in a long time

Thank you for this tutorial(:

I was going to leave the icon I made but can't figure it out (it's been years since I have used LJ or have had to use HTML for any reason).

Thanks!
