Japan style wallpaper

 
Now I would like to drop some effects on my pattern. But I really don’t want to cover all this with effects, so this is why we will use quick mask (Q) and black to white gradient to set the area the effects to be on.

So as you see the effects will be only on the area that is white now.

Tap Q to ext quick mask and to see the selection you’ve made.

I will use blur on the area.

Now we are done with our foreground and now let’s make some interesting backgrounds.

Firs create a layer between the background and our foreground layer.

I will use gradients to create a background, and here are my gradient settings.

I’ve just player with the gradient and we get this beautiful effect TNX to the PIN LIGHT blending mode.

Just a little change there and switch on our foreground and there we have it – beautiful.

Now this picture needs some text I think.

….And another copy with the mask.

As you can see here the small logo just blurs on the sides. You can make it manually using the blur brush or just use Gaussian blur on he bottom copy and hide the sides (using mask) of the sharp top copy.

White text for the contrast and we are basically done.

Hope you found something useful in making wallpapers.

A poor quality tutorial, it isn't always clear what your telling people to do, you need to give more detail rather than vague advice on parts. You have to bare in mind alot of beginners will be looking at tutorials so you need more detail so they understand. The outcome of this tutorial is nice but it could of been made so much better.
