In this tutorial i will show you how easy is to create a background with veritcal lines. This type of background was used lately a lot because it is the latest trend in design. For start i will show you the result of my tutorial after i will explain how i made it.
Let’s start our tutorial by creating a new document with the following size : 500 x 500 pixels.I will set my Foreground color to #000000, then with Paint Bucket Tool i will press one time over my document.
Create a new layer and select it (shift+ ctrl + n).
Grab Brush Tool, and with a Smooth Round brush, create 1 point over my layout with the color #a864a8
Please note the brush size should be 400 pixels.
This is the result you will need to have
After that, we need to blur the image. So you need to do this: Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur, set Radius at 70 pixels. Here is a picture with how you can do it and how should it look:
Now go to Filter > Noise > Add noise. In amount field change the value at 30%, distribution should be Gaussian and check the Monochromatic box. See the example below:
Now go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur. In the Motion blur window, set the angle to 90 degrees, and distance to 999 pixels. See the example below:
Hmm, few more tweaks and should look fine and ready for any use. Now you need to light up a bit the layer, how we do that? Well is easy, Create a new layer above the existing layer we have already, then select that layer and modify the blending mode of that layer to Overlay, then select brush tool, and now add a white point on the layer we have created. See the example below with the steps you need to fallow:
Well that's it, here is the final result:
This tutorials can be applied in any situation, when you have to design a background or a banner, flayer etc... I love vertical lines because they are very simple and nice looking. Hope this tutorial helps, and also don't forget to Be Creative!
