HI, I KNOW you are a great graphic maker, but i have a doubt. i wanna make something like your graphics. but idk how to make the lines, points and these things. i mean graphics with typography. can you help me, just tell me how can i use photoshop to make these things. :)
Well, what you need my dear friend, is a lesson in vectorizing. Photoshop has cool features that’ll allow you to do the basics but if you really want to get into it then I suggest downloading Adobe Illustrator, which allows you to do like a lot of stuff. Now, you may be saying to yourself, wow, this bitch is giving me the most cryptic answer in the entire world she’s such a ho, but the truth is… I don’t know much about the whole thing myself, and my teaching skills are nonexistent SO imma just link you to a swanky tutorial: http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tools-tips/photoshops-pen-tool-the-comprehensive-guide/
You can find loads more on the interwebz.
**these links should work, and if not then i’m sorry >.< anyways, if they break, just shoot me an ask letting me know! also, i’ll probably go back and add a few other places to download from over time, just so that if one breaks then there’s a back-up.
So, also I’m not quite sure as to which links work for the MAC exactly and which ones don’t, there’s two listed that I know work for sure but then the rest are up to trial and error by you I suppose ~
- Photoshop Cs3; (x) (x) (x) (x)
- Photoshop Cs4; (x) (x) (x)
- Photoshop Cs5; (x) (x) (x) (x) (x) (x)
- Links that work for the mac for sure; (x) (x)

how do you make that different colored shadow behind some text (e.g the text is pink and behind theres a blue shadow)
Well i just go to the little FX button at the bottom of my layer tab, and then I go to Drop Shadow and adjust the settings there :)
gershons: or you can duplicate the text, change the color and move the layer under the main text and move it. fin.
sorry i mean the banner in the graphic ficciones lol
Okay, I am positive that there are many less retarded ways in which you can do this, but this is me we’re talking about. So…
I just used the rectangular marquee tool to make my initial shape and filled it with the bucket tool. Then using the Eliptical marquee tool I made a very elongated oval and deleted the bottom part.
And now I moved my selection upwards and inversed it (Shift + Alt + I or Select > Inverse) And started to delete the top part.. And here’s where my stupid shines through..
I don’t even know what I did there, I just selected the shape I wanted using the Polygonal Lasso and filled it with a darker color than the one I used on the first shape to give it some dimension.
Then I flipped it and put it on the other side and that’s pretty much it… Now, you can do all that or you can simply download the .PSD of the one I just made here.
*You can change the colors by using the Color Overlay thingie in each of the separate layers.
post/14776971620/young-lovers-are-always-doomed what texture did you use for this graphic? please and thank you!
This was the main texture.. it’s from one of Ley’s packs.. I’m pretty sure I used something more but I can’t remember for the life of me, sorry..
How in the world did you get the picture to look this way?
It’s quite easy, actually. I just sort of drew over the original picture using the polygonnal lasso and a brush creating seperate layers for each different color and then I just threw in a papery texture on top once I was done :)
Hi! I struggle with the grain setting a lot... what sort of settings would you suggest to get a good grainy look? Thank you for your time!
Well, I usually go with a low intensity and leave the contrast close to 50. It also helps to add a texture on top of it and play around with the blending mode…
what texture did you use in your dreamers poster edit?
I added some grain first, then I duplicated the layer and I pixelated it, erased the parts that I wanted to be ~normal then I used this one, and this one (slayground), and theen this one. Phew.
here’s the link for the tutorial: http://www.ex-posed.com/resources/tutorial/channelcrop/channelcrop.html
It only works with some images though, but ugh it is fantastic.
where do you download your patterns and brushes ?
Well, for the most part my brushes come from random images from the internet, and I sometimes use my own scans as textures. However I think you’ll find everything you need in these blogs:
mellowmint | velvetfactory | sanami276 | fuckyeahresources | crazykira-resources | physicalmagic | psychadeliachild | northerndawn | slayground
yellowlemon | gemmaarterton | wicked-fate
P.S. Hipster blogs are an amazing source for textures!
do you know where i can download photoshop?
omg I’m so funny
yeah you have to go to the Adobe site and download the legit version as a trial first and then download this torrent and follow the instructions. And then you have to do what wingfoo says in the 9th page of the comments and voila.
I wish you luck.
