Poker header Photoshop Tutorial
Check out this new poker header graphic I made yesterday, I want to share with you.
You can download the Photoshop file at the bottom, or you can read the tutorial and make one of your own, with your own characteristics.
And here is the tutorial.
First we will make the background, and here we will make some sunray shapes, you can either search google for some sunray photoshop brush or shapes to save time and work.
Or do it the hard way, with the pen tool click and make a triangle spike, copy it a lot of times, place them like I did in the image below..
Now we will change the background color, so select the background layer and make a gradient from light green to dark and with the radial gradient tool drag out from center of the image we are making.
Set the sunray layers blending mode to multiply and your background should look like this.
Now we will be making the poker cards, this is quite simple because Photoshop is give us most of the shapes.
You will repeat these next steps 4 times, one for each card of cause.
So with the rectangle tool drag out a shape for the cards.
Go to photoshop custom shape dropdownbox and locate the 4 card symbols, like a heart, diamond, etc and place them inside each card shape.
In the layers panel select each card separately and with the free transform tool rotate and place them like I did below.
You might also want to resize them to make them fit the image size.
This last part if the our text, so with the text tool type in some text on the stage, still having the text selected, click on the small icon at the top of the photoshop window named "wrap text"
and set it like I did below.
Now your text should look something like this, (your font might not be the same as mine of cause).
The final thing we need to do is to style the text, so in the layers panel, double click on the text layer to get to the layers styles panel and give it settings like below.
