In this tutorial we will show you how to use Photoshop CS5.5 to change the color of social network icons (or any icon for that matter) so that they can more closely fit into the color scheme of a wire-frame or website you are working on.With the popularity of social networking sites increasing on an almost daily basis the success or failure of a website depend more and more on integration of these social networks.

If you need a collection of social networking icons please check out the resource links I have provided at the bottom of this article. Continue reading
