how to make banners in photoshop

I got a request to explain how to apply a doodle gif texture, and since I couldn’t find a tutorial, I decided to make one myself! I will be explaining (with lots of pictures) how to apply the hearts gif shown in the banner. I used the hearts gif from this doodle pack.

What you will need: photoshop. I use cc 2015.
Difficulty level: ★★☆☆☆

How did you make your banner? I want one like that!

Step 1: Open a file in photoshop. I don’t know the exact size of a tumblr banner but 1170 x 656 works for me.

Step 2:  *Okay, this is completley optional, you don’t have to do this.* Have fun with the design of your banner background. I have a very light gradient on my banner to give it a lilttle bit of depth:

Double click on this little lock icon:

And click ‘ok’.

Right click on the white rectangle and select this:

Go under ‘gradient overlay’ and lower the opacity:

And imma add some brush strokes, to make it more fun (example: my cc finds blog (@lustyfinds) has some).

Step 3: Copy your layer 2 or more times. I’m gonna copy it 3 times. Right click on this:

And select ‘duplicate layer’. I’ll do that 3 more times.

Step 4: Make a new layer above all of the 3 layers. Just click on this icon:

Step 5: Write your username or whatever you want to be on your banner. You can get some fonts on the 1001 fonts page.

Step 6 (optional): Put some dropshadow on the text: select the layer with the text and go under ‘layer’ then ‘layer syle’ and click ‘drop shadow’.

And adjust the drop shadow settings to your liking. This is how i did it:

Step 7: Copy your layer with the text 3 times (I have to do it 3 times because i copied the background 3 times).

Step 8: Now you are gonna “reshape” 2 of the layers with the text. Go under ‘edit’ and click ‘free transform’.

I have selected one of the text layers.

Move the rectangle up or down, right or left, so it’s not in line with the rest of the two. When you’re done press ‘enter’.

Now do that with another text layer. But “reshape” differently that the one you did before. (select the other text layer and ‘free transform’ it)

Step 9: We need to merge the text layer with the background layer (3 times). Before you do that convert the text layers to smart objects: right click and click ‘convert to smart object’.

Do that with te rest of the text layers.

You can se here that there is a text layer above the background layer. You want to do that with the rest of te layers. Just drag them.

Like so. Now to merge the layers right click on a text layer.

Click on ‘merge down’.

Do that with the rest of the text layers.

And you should have this:

You can draw on each layer (I did the line thingy on miine) and add what ever you want. I won’t do that now because i have some details on the background.

Step 10: Go under ‘window’ and click ‘animation’.

You should have this on the bottom:

And now click on this (it’s on the thing that pooped up when you clicked ‘animation’):

Select ‘make frames from layers’.

You will now have 3 frames for the gif.

Step 11: Adjust the duration of each frame. I’ll put mine on 0,2 sec.

Just right cilck on the frame:

And select the time you want.

Do that with the other 2.

Also make sure this is on ‘forever’.

Step 12: Save! Go under ‘file’ and select ‘save for web and devices…’

Make sure this is selected:

And cilck ‘save’! You’re done!

This is the GIF I made in this tutorial. If you have any questions please, ask me. I hope this isn’t confusing and that I helped. Have a good day/night!

Hi loves, I guess it’s about time I make one of these to appreciate all the people that I have somehow convinced to press that follow button how even.! as well as the people that makes me wanna log on everyday I honestly forgot the exact day of my blog anniversary so I guess today will do for this post wink wonk c: It’s been about a year since I actively wrote for bts and got back into the army tumblr community and I’m happy the allure and fascination in writing did not leave me back then. First off, I really want to say thank you to all of you, sincerely, I never thought I would meet so many wonderful people on this website and the amount of talent in this fandom is astounding! Thank you for being so patient with me, for understanding that I’m a fickle writer at heart (them random ass updates) and thank you for letting me share my stories with you. The following people have been meaningful to me in someway, whether that is through the little things like the occasional message or some that I can truly count on to be there when I need them. 

Note, that more one of the below categories may apply to you but I like organizing it this way :’) also if I didn’t write a message for you it’s not because I love you any less but more like I’m trying real hard for this to not exceed a certain length and crash everyone’s app (HA). Please forgive me if I forgot anyone .. I really tried my best TTTT but believe me when I say if I have punched that follow button then I have loved you for a long long time. So without farther ado..

Your graphics are so cool!!<3 May I ask how you make them? I'm trying to make some banners for studyblr masterposts but I have no idea where to start~ thanks!! ♪( ´▽`)

hello, thank you!! (*~▽~) i use photoshop cs5. here’s a tutorial-thing on how i made the icons:

I HOPE THIS HELPS EVEN A BIT have fun making banners!! i look forward to seeing your masterposts around ♫꒰•‿•๑꒱

anonymous asked:

I was wondering, because I saw it with your most recent stream and a few other animators on YouTube, but how do you get a banner around your stream saying what you're working on and an icon. I've looked everywhere for a tutorial or something but I can't find anything, so I was just curious ;;

Oh, it’s pretty easy to do, but yeah, if you don’t know what you’re looking for it could be tricky to figure out. So if you stream with OBS (you can download it for free) you can set it up like so:

The image is just overlayed on top. I made that in Photoshop. (Make sure it is .png and you have a window for your screen.

You can right click the Source area to add elements and if you’re previewing the stream you can then Edit Scene to move the elements around to how to want them!

Hope that helps!

anonymous asked:

Hello! Quick question, how do you make the banners that go at the top of your fic posts? They look really neat and professional, and I’d like to try and make some myself since lots of fic writers seem to be using them, so what software do you use? (If you want to reveal your secrets, that is :P) Thank you very much, I love your fics btw!!!!!

Hi there!  Honestly?  I use Photoshop, because I have it for work anyway.  So it works out.  If you don’t have it, Fotor is a good, free browser-based alternative for what I use it for (slapping text on an image)

But the biggest trick is where I get my stock images.  If you go to Google Images and search whatever you like, you can click on ‘tools’ (farthest right link at the top) and then go to ‘usage rights’.  Then I click on ‘noncommercial use with editing’ (or whatever it says), which gives me every stock image that’s free to use and mess with.

Slap some text on it and ta-da!  You have a banner

anonymous asked:

how do you make your logo/banners/headers/etc?

hey anon! instead of studying for the SAT, which is tomorrow, which is what I should be doing, here I am, ready to answer your ask!okay, so 

  • I make my graphics via Photoshop CS3 (an older version of photoshop tbh)!
  • if you do not have photoshop, i have a masterpost of photoshop alternatives right here!
  • if you want to know how to make similar graphics like mine, i have a tutorial on how to do that right here!
  • a quick rundown of how i make my stuff is literally
    • choosing a font (either handwriting/scripty font or a blocky, square but organized font)
    • and choosing the right colors
    • and putting them on a white background
  • if anyone else is interested i can make another tutorial on how to make a more “complicated” or a graphic with more steps than just text and a background! (anon, if you want this, pop me an ask and i’ll gladly give you a tuto)
  • but otherwise, as long as you follow what my tutorial (linked above) says, you can make graphics like mine!
  • also, i made a quick header as an example. 
    • it’s a red/pink background with text and two white lines. 
    • i duplicated the text and put them behind each other (stacking them)
    • and changed the colors from dark to light. 
    • and then i added two white lines just for the hell of it
    • and that’s it!
  • idk if this helped, anon, but i hope it did?

i’ll probably make another tutorial about making graphics but it’d be nice if you guys told me if you want me to make one (means i’ll throw it out faster haha)

hope this helped, love! xoxo


anonymous asked:

Hi Mary! I love your legacy! I was wondering how you made your banner. It looks so cute and I want to make one for my own rainbowcy! Thanks so much!

Thank you! I’m so glad you’re enjoying my legacy! ♥♥♥

I made both of my banners in adobe illustrator and used pretty free fonts that I found online.

I probably could have done the same thing in Photoshop, but I found it easier to do in illustrator. :)

anonymous asked:

Hi! Can you please tell me how one makes those icons, header, wallpapers orsimply edits of 2 people in different images put in to one? Because I have a project to make banners and headers and I only use Photoshop CS6 and don't really know how to make them. Can you please guide me? If not can you please send me links of such tutorials? Thank you nonetheless!!

Hi, sweetie! ♡♡♡ I’m not really good at explaining (at least in english ;; hahah) so I listed here all the tutorials I’ve used to make manips and some I’ve found recently, I hope it helps ^^

Oh wow, thanks for the interest! I doubt I’ll be making custom runes/banners because I’m a procrastinating busy college student, though they are pretty easy to make. As for how I make them, let’s talk about the tiny ones. 

First grab a template (I’ll post them a bit later), open it in an image editing program of your choice, (I use photoshop for all my stuff) and zoom in real close, like 1500% or something. It’ll look like this:

Then, draw your symbol using a 1px brush:

Make a new layer under the lines, and color the thing!

And last, add some glow (layer overlay)

And you have your runestone

Quality is very shitty, fitting for a shitty person.

Ahem, hey guys, Elsa here!!! I’m very proud to say that this account, was able to reach a milestone~! I’m so happy, confused as well, but happy none the less. 600 followers. Six-hundred followers. Six-hundred people thought that, “hey, this person pretty cool, follow.” Like whaaa?? That’s amazing. Or at least, to me, that’s amazing. I know, I know, I say that I can’t do shit; but the reason is that I can’t grasp the fact that it’s just me & the way the blog looks that you guys follow. 

I don’t do them gorgeous gifs/edits tho I want to learn how to or those beautifully written fanfics; It’s just my comments on these six boys. That’s it. & the fact so many of you guys keep sending me all these kind, too-good-for-my-heart messages honestly means a lot to me; & for that I thank you.

Anyways, I’m glad to be making this follow-forever list~ so go follow all these amazing beauties cause they’re awesome.

Special Shoutout to @aztro & @sailorjoonjams for helping me out with photoshop so that I can make the banner!
