Creating a Mac-Type Background in Photoshop
This tutorial is about making a “mac” style background. You can use these in all sorts of situations, including the obvious – your desktop as well as part of your designs or for corporate work (powerpoint presentations, flash work etc). For the final touches a tinge of black is overlayed on bottom right and a bit more white is overlayed on the top left. But these are inconsequential changes.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to create an abstract background image using Photoshop. The design has a cool wavy pattern with interesting lighting effects. This is a combination of design effects. You will find it very useful to create another design pattern.
In this time, we will focus on the big picture steps taken to create this image. You’ll learn some incredible techniques in this tutorial, and get a view into how the designer creates beautiful photo-manipulation based images. You can also apply the techniques into your image.
This tutorial is going to demonstrate you how to apply texture to a uneven surface. Flatly applying a texture across a whole image (as a means to age it or degrade it) is simple stuff. Realistically applying a texture to an uneven surface is much more difficult as more photoshop techniques are required.
In this tutorial we’re going to create a metallic effect using layer styles and gradients that you can apply to different objects. We’ll put it on a nice background and create a style for lettering that makes it look like it’s embedded into the metal. And there you have it, the finished product!
In this tutorial, it will show you how to create a nice colorful bubble effect in Photoshop. To begin with, you need to create a background in black, then start to define the circle pattern brush. After the bubble creation, apply the color effect to finalize this tutorial.
To some common Photoshop users, they may not be familiar to create a smudge signature. The procedure for this creation is not as complicate as you thought. You can generate your signature in few steps using blending mode’s function.
Something simple can be turned into a nice art. Here will show you to work on a special cosmic cross sign using space as a background. This is created by regular shapes with overlapping each other in some cases. After color adjustment, then we are done, the result looks like a pattern.
