Hey guys, this is Clayton Jenkins with yet another Photoshop tutorial; today I’m going to show you how to create this DJ type poster effect, you know I’m just going to show you how to do that, or I will. So I’m just going to start a new composition, sort of the black background, go to File, New, I did 1024x768, I would suggest that you do the size of your desktop background because that way you can set this as the background if you end up blacking it. So anyways, once you have the new composition fill in the background with black like I have done, if you don’t know how to do that go to the paint bucket tool here and make sure this foreground colors black and then just fill it in then create a text layer where you copy and paste whatever text you want, I did DJ Steamy because that’s what my friends call me in high school and yeah it’s kind of weird but, anyways and until got on the 45 degree angle, if you don’t know how to do that, then once you have your text all copied and pasted, go to free transform, I don’t know why it’s not what we do that, and then you’ll see your angle right here and just make sure that goes to 45. So and then you can choose any color you want, I chose a darker, you know, I’ll put the code out there for those of you who don’t want that color, but just something , I guess whatever cut that you think for is nice, then you go and find a picture of some DJ guy, I’ll just suggest go out in the internet I don’t own this image, and that’s so, don’t steal anything that’s not yours, we’re going to make through this layers now, and I guess let’s just show the top on right now, and I’m going to take out these glasses; then undo the layer via cut cause we want this to, layer’s out doing on 10, okay, layer via cut, now I’m just going to get rid of this one right here, rename this one, I left, I right, now we got our DJ guy, so we’ll type the eyes for right now, now we’re going to control click this little done tab and you’ll get the selection of the text, okay, then you’re going to hit control shift I and make sure that you’re selected on that DJ guy or whatever and then hit the delete. Okay, and now you’ll see it kept our DJ guy there and then just put these layers back on, and maybe, you know, so yeah, anyways you can do you know something like this, and then like, I know also took that on a 45 degree angle, I know talk to you guys, really; anyways, this has been Clayton Jenkins tutorial, I hope you enjoyed it, it does leave a pretty cool effect and if anything you can do, just say something like that, it’s up to you. Anyways, please subscribe, please do take time to make an edit, and yeah, peace.
