Frosted Wallpaper

 
In this tutorial we are going to practice how to make wallpaper. Why to download or even to pay for the wallpapers if you can make them yourselves only having Photoshop installed on your computer.

Many people already changed their opinion about monitor proportions from 4:3 (normal) to 16:9 (wide) so that is why we will create a wide screen aspect ratio document.

Create a new layer. It is better to leave the background as it is.

Use this layer to overlay it with cyan to white rounded gradient.

There we have it. But still this picture has not enough contrast, it has not enough blacks.

Create another layer and overlay it with black to transparency gradient.

I‘ve added a little bit of black.

When you think you re done with dropping black colors, merge these 2 gradient layers together.

I've used a spherize filter to my layer. The effect- we get a border between black and cyan color, the color blends less.

To see what I can get out of this result a usually create a copy of the layer not to mess everything up.

Frosted Effects

Transform the layer or just flip it horizontally

Frosted Effects

Change a little bit the color but leave it cooled toned. Use hue/saturation in adjustment settings.
