How To Create A Vibrant Image Using Photoshop, by Webdesigner Depot

Webdesigner depot published a tutorial regarding how to create a vibrant image using Photoshop. It’s impressive how they’ve completely avoided using Illustriator and made good use of Photoshop’s features to create a futuristic-looking image.

The tutorial started off by using a free stock-image online, and basically the steps involved are pretty simple:

  1. Isolating the subject from the background by creating a vector mask – I like it that they’re using a vector mask (such that it’s scalable without losing any data)
  2. Adding a gradient in the background – I particularly love the colour scheme used, warm colours and great contrast.
  3. Making use of patterns and polygons to create shapes around the subject, complemented with speckles of debris.
  4. Some minor lighting effects, achievable through motion blurring and fiddling with the pen tool
  5. Overlaying a final texture – you can get a ton of them over at BittBox

It’s as easy as that! And within 30 minutes to an hour you’ll have a great, visually-impactful photo at your disposal. You can print it as a poster (make sure to convert it to CMYK mode though!), or use it as a wallpaper, ot even publish it on your website (and there’re many more ways to do it).
