This is a fairly basic instructable on how to create certain effects in Photoshop. I used Photoshop CS5 for this but I'm certain that you can probably use similar tools in other programs to create these effects. I am trying to explain this so that a beginner at photoshop could do this but if you have any questions or don't completely understand any steps then please ask questions, I'm more than happy to answer them!

I am entering this instructable into the Halloween Photo Editing Chalenge so if you like this then please vote for me! :D

Step 1: Getting The Terminator Pic

There's a lot of photo's of Arnie posing as everyone's favourite homocidal, time-travelling android, and a few photos other terminators too. The internet is teeming with apropriate photos if you're willing to look a little, but for the sake of convenience I've added the photo I used, it's the one that I think is most apropriate, iconic and has the best effect in the end! Once you've found it you need to save it to your computer for a little later on.
Very neat, expertly done, but can we see some more scars, bullet holes, axe-cuts please.... hahahaha.<br><br>You've got great Photoshop skills, what's next?<br><br>Thanks for showing us.
Perfect work!<br>Good luck on the contest ;)
wow lol i now know that i can terminate myslef but can we like do the same for our arm or somthing?
that's a really nice idea! it'd take a bit of work i would think but if you find a good photo from the famous scene in terminator 2 then I don't see why not :D
I would vote for you but when I went to the contest and clicked view entries, yours was not listed. Guess I'll come back later...
I think it takes about a day for the instructable to be accepted.... I hope! Thanks a lot :D
