On this occasion the Design Studio will give tricks on how to design a poster design celebrating an Anniversary with a cool and unique look using Photoshop
You can use Photoshop CS3, CS4 or Adobe Photoshop CS6 CS7 and other versions of Photoshop. The steps to Create an Anniversary Poster Design with Adobe Photoshop are very easy. The process is the same as how to create a logo design in Photoshop, using vector objects, interesting writing fonts
Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to create an Adobe Photoshop Anniversary Poster Design with Photoshop;
1. Files -> New. Specify 13 inches wide by 14 inches, or a suitable document size for your resolution without creating horizontal or vertical scrollbars. Leave the resolution 72.
2. Choose a blue foreground color. Select the ellipse tool.
3. From the center of the document, left click and drag out while holding the SHIFT and ALT keys together to create a perfect circle.
4. Right click the layer you just created and select “Duplicate Layer” (Hint: Visit edit -> preferences to define a shortcut key to quickly duplicate the layer).
5. With the new duplicated layer selected, select one of the 4 corner points. Drag inward with your left mouse button while holding ALT together to keep a perfect circle.
6. Create another circle roughly the size of the white-inside circle as shown above.
7. Change the foreground to white after it’s scaled.
8. Repeat this process 4 more times to create a circle of the same size and color as shown above.
9. Select the first blue layer in the Layers panel.
10. Double-click the right side of the layer to open the layer styles window.
11. Check off the inner glow and match the values as shown above in order to create a slightly darker inner shadow.
12. Click on the vector mask thumbnail of our first duplicated layer (the white layer). You will see a show of lines around the white circle.
13. Select the tool bar typewriter and change the font color to white.
14. Position the cursor over the outlined white circle until it changes the cursor icon to a text cursor with a diagonal line through it.
15. Left click once and start typing the word above. Just use the SPACEBAR to evenly align each phrase. The font used here is Free,.
16. Repeat the above steps to create the text in a black circle. These are names associated with Photoshop development.
17. Note, you may need to duplicate the black layer and scale it a bit before you apply the text.
18. Select the pen tool. Then select the duplicated blue circle layer (2nd to last duplicated layer). Add a new layer and make sure “Use Previous Layer to Create Clipping Mask” is checked.
19. With red as your chosen foreground color, create a shape similar to the one shown above, except draw where the arrow is pointing.
20. With the new layer selected, duplicate the layer. Once duplicated, press CONTROL-T. Rotate and move it to the place to the right of the first player, then change the color of the new layer to the neon yellow shown above.
21. Repeat the above steps for the remaining colors until the entire circle is filled.
22. With the type tool selected and the foreground color white, type “ADOBE PHOTOSHOP” (Pro Myriad is the font used).
23. Repeat 2 times to create “20” and “YEAR” as shown above.
24. Note: Use the Character panel to adjust the letter spacing for the desired effect.
25. With the first text layer you created selected, go to Layer -> Type -> Convert To Shape.
26. Repeat the above steps for all remaining text layers. This will allow us in the next step to distort the entire project for a unique perspective.
27. Select the first layer we created (with the exception of the background layer), and scroll to the topmost shift and hold while selecting the topmost layer. This will select all layers.
28. With all layers selected, go to Edit -> Transform -> Distort.
29. Drag the top right anchor inward as shown above. Then select the mobile device and press “Apply” on the resulting pop-up dialog.
30. Important Steps: Go to Image -> Image Size, and change the resolution to 300 pixels/inch. This will drastically increase the size of the document, but is necessary if you want to have this poster printed!
31. With all layers still selected, press CONTROL-G to group the layers.
32. Then duplicate the group. Take the duplicated group and select “Merge Group” from the layer panel menu (Located in the upper right corner of the panel).
33. Select the move tool and position the layer as shown above. Then select luminosity for the layer blend mode, and 11% under Opacity.
34. Duplicate the layer we just created and move the layer to the very top. This gives the appearance of a glass effect.
35. With white as foreground, use the Pen Tool to create a shape as shown above.
36. Once you’ve created it, right-click the layer and select “Rasterize”.
37. Select “Display” for the layer blend mode, and then selection. Select a brush with a large diameter and erase the bottom part of the shape we’ve just created as shown above.
The Final Result looks like an Adobe Photoshop Anniversary Poster Design image with Photoshop
