Hi!  Could you do one on how to turn clothes to silver?  I haven't found a tutorial on how to do that yet, i'm sure it is something with color balance or something but having a hard time trying to achieve it lol

I feel like if you mess around with this tutorial, but use a white softbrush instead of a colored one for instance and simply tone down the saturation/vibrance of the clothing a bunch you'll get a decent effect. 

If you have a very detailed picture of the clothing and the vibers are actually visible you might wanna use a surface blur or something like that first to smoothen that out.

Can't help you there. I'm sure that if you google it, you can find some website that offers translations though. I googled a little bit for my own language and instantly found a website, specifically for translating English > Dutch, just for Photoshop tools. So I'm sure there's something like that for your language as well :)

Hey, ik heb 't geprobeerd maar klopt 't dat 't niet met elke stock even goed werkt?
De eerste stock die ik probeerde was b/w en ging bij de glowing edges al fout.. de tweede deed wel glowing edges maar die chrome werd lelijk en de derde poging deed wel dat glowing edges en chrome gedeelte goed maar bij de laatste stap zag je er niks meer van bijna haha

Wel een wreed effect trouwens. Greets!
(had deze tijdje terug al gefavt als t goed is) :P
