10 great Photoshop tutorials

Share

Here are a few easy Photoshop tutorials to introduce you to new tools and ways of implementing them into future designs.

 

1. Firefish Logo Photoshop Tutorial

Firefish Photoshop logo tutorial

In this Photoshop Tutorial, you’ll learn how to design a mascot based on the Firefox logo, and mimic the fire effect using the pen tool and gradients.

 

2. The Correct Way to Create Curved Text

Text wrapping

Insignias and retro logos are popular and many of them have some sort of text along a curved path. Most people use the Text Warp tool but it ends up deforming the text. In this tutorial, you’ll learn why they look deformed and how you can properly create text along a curve without deforming the letters.

 

3. How to Create Hanging Typography in Photoshop and Illustrator

In this Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to create this cool hanging typography text using Photoshop and a little bit of Adobe Illustrator.

 

4. Create a SKY Like Logo

Sky logo tutorial

In this tutorial, I will be explaining a very simple and straightforward way of creating Sky’s latest logo. We will be using layer styles and adjustment layers to achieve a transparent glass effect, which will come in handy for many other graphics too.

 

5. Create 3D Typography

Dream logo

In this tutorial, we’re going to create a 3D Typography based design. All the elements will revolve around the centrepiece and theme: dreaming. The word will dictate the entire layout and control the space by allowing everything else to emerge from within. The trees will grow out of the letters; the mountains will show themselves behind the word and overshadow the glowing moon.

Dreaming often takes you to different places and unites bits and pieces of your memory. It basically takes you to a whole new world, but that is usually made up of real elements. We’ll illustrate this by making everything float in mid air, as if suspended in time, yet maintain realism by using common elements of nature.

 

6. Text in Stiches

Stitches on text photoshop

Over the years as a graphic designer I’ve accumulated a wealth of custom brushes, shapes and actions that I keep carefully organised and labeled for future use. The brush set I’ll be sharing with you today has been in my collection for probably five of six years and every once in a while I’ll find a good reason to load it into my brushes palette. If you’ve never done that before, don’t worry, I’ll walk you through it as we go.

 

7. Wood Inlay Text

Lets start by setting up a new document, mine is 540×300 pixels at 72ppi but for this tutorial size doesn’t matter at all. There are plenty of good places online to find nice wood textures and I found a great one at defcon-x.de. We’re going to start by creating 3 layers and pasting wood textures in each. Color isn’t as important as the tone of the wood and for this lesson I chose a very light, medium and dark piece to work with. I arranged them from lightest on the bottom to darkest on the top because I want the light wood to comprise the image’s background.
