Jurassic World Movie Poster – Photoshop Tutorial

Jurassic World Movie Poster – Photoshop Tutorial

Welcome back to another very exciting tutorialhere at the PhotoshopTrainingChannel.

Com.

My name is Jesus Ramirez and you can findme on Twitter @JRfromPTC.

In this tutorial, we're going to recreatethe Jurassic World movie poster using only Photoshop.

We will not be using any photographs.

Everything that you see will be created usingnothing else but Photoshop.

So, before we get started, you may want tostop on my website PhotoshopTrainingChannel.

Com, find this tutorial, and you can download thefile that I'm going to be using; that way, you can follow along.

Okay, let's get started with this tutorial.

So this is the file that we're going to beworking with, and I started out with a shape.

It's a vector shape.

It's just a circle with a rectangle.

If I select a layer and come over to the Pathspanel, you'll see that it is only a circle and a rectangle.

And I can move those around or adjust theshape using the tools, but I'm not going to do that.

I'm going to go back to the Layers panel onceagain and what I'm going to do now is I'm going to show you this group here, and inthis group, I have several vector shapes–a rectangle, an inner circle, the trees hereat the bottom, and the T.

rex.

Now, I'm quickly going to talk about how Icreated this.

That way, you can go ahead and create yourown logo.

I don't necessarily want you to learn howto create the Jurassic World movie poster, but I want you to see the techniques thatI'm going to use so you can apply them to your own work.

So you might want to follow this tutorial,do it once, using the Jurassic Park logo, and then, take those techniques and applythem to your own projects.

So, I'm just going to quickly create a newdocument and I'm just going to show you how I used the Pen Tool to create that.

So, obviously, I don't have a sketch or anythinglike that here that I'm following.

I'm sort of drawing a general shape.

And in reality, this is a path.

And you can see that I have a path selectedhere.

Once I created that, I went into the AdjustmentLayers and added a solid.

So now I have a solid.

If you come into the Paths panel, you willsee that I have the original work path, and now, I have the Fill shape.

I can delete the work path if I want to andI still have the Fill shape.

So click on the Path, and with this path selected,I can come back into the Layers panel.

With the Pen Tool, I can make sure ExcludeOverlapping Shapes is selected and I can create a shape that is going to make a hole insideof the original shape.

So that's how you would create the T.

rexthat you saw here.

This is how these holes were created for example.

And one other thing I want to quickly showyou is if I create a circle, and now I have the shape selected.

And then, I create a rectangle for the bottompart.

I can select both of these by holding Shiftand clicking on the bottom layer, and pressing Ctrl E to merge that into a single path.

So, anyway, that is how these shapes werecreated and I don't think it was necessary to go step-by-step on this entire processbecause it takes a really long time to create something complicated like the T.

rex, but,at least, you have an idea of how it was created.

So I essentially did what I just showed youjust over a much longer period of time with a little more detail, of course.

But, anyway, so this is going to be our Shapesand, first, we're going to be working with the back shape.

And on the back shape, the first thing I'mgoing to do is I'm going to give it some texture, so we're going to use the Pattern AdjustmentLayer and I'm just going to press OK.

Before I continue, I want to clip this patternso it only affects the shape below it.

To do that, I can press Ctrl Alt G, that'sCommand Option G on the Mac, to create a clipping mask or you can hold Alt, Option on the Mac,while you're hovering in-between both layers, and when the icon changes to the down pointingarrow with the square, you can just click to create that clipping mask, so, now, anychanges I make to the Pattern Fill will be applied only to the shape below it.

And to open up the Pattern Fill window again,just double click on the pattern icon you see here and it brings this up.

So the pattern that we're going to use forthis first shape is going to be a pattern called Sandpaper and it's found under theErodible Textures, which is you click on this down pointing arrow to show you the patternsthat you haven't currently selected, and then, you can click on the fly out menu to selecta different set, so it's under Erodible Textures.

I'm just going to press OK.

I don't want to pan them.

I just want to replace them and it's the lastone here, and it looks like sandpaper, and if you right click on it, Ctrl click on theMac.

If you don't have a mouse, you can just clickon Rename Pattern, and you'll see the name Sandpaper, so the first one that I'm goingto use is this oneóSandpaper.

I'm going to press OK.

And then, I'm going to change the BlendingMode to Soft Light and bring the Opacity down to something like, maybe, 40%.

And I was holding Shift and the down arrowon the keyboard to change the Opacity value, and this is the result that we get.

I'm going to add another pattern and I'm alsogoing to clip it, Ctrl Alt G and I'm going to click on the pattern icon to bring up thePattern Fill window.

And this time, I'm going to add a patterncalled Rust Flakes and they're found under the Texture Fill.

And that is right here, Texture Fill; notnumber 2 but the one without the number, number 1, I guess it would be, and press OK.

And the one that I'm looking for is this onehere, which is called Rust Flakes.

I'm going to press OK and I'm going to changethe Blending Mode on this layer to Multiply.

Now, before we go any further, I want to takethese 3 items and make them into a Smart Object, and you'll see why in a moment.

So I'm going to select them all by holdingShift and clicking on the top one and the bottom one while still holding Shift, rightclicking on them and select Convert to Smart Object.

So, now, they're one Smart Object.

Then, I can press Ctrl J, Command J on theMac, to duplicate, and I'm just going to call this "Layer emboss.

" Then I'm going to go into Filter, Stylize,Emboss, and I'm going to do an Emboss of an Angle of 150, Height to amount 165, and I'mgoing to press OK.

I'm going to click on this arrow here to collapsethat, just because I don't really need to see that, the filters and what it's doing.

It's creating a lot of clutter and I wantto keep it clutter-free, so you can see what's going on.

But, anyway, so now that I have that selected,I'm going to go into the Blending Modes and change it to Overlay.

And I'm going to bring down the Opacity, andthen, maybe, start moving it up to about 60-62.

And I'm just going to zoom in so you can seewhat I just did; this is before and after.

It just gives this texture some depth.

And, at this point, I'm not really likingthe overall texture.

It's a little too dark for me, and I thinkthe problem is one of the textures we applied earlier, so I'm going to double click on eitherthe pattern or the embossed smart object.

It doesn't really matter which one.

They're both going to take us to the sameplace, which is this place here, where we can make changes to what we created earlier.

And I think that the problem is that the patternon top called Rusted Flakes, so let me just change the name to that.

That way, you know what that isóRusted Flakesóandthe one at the bottom was the Sandpaper.

I think that the problem here is that thisone on top, the texture's just way too strong.

So what I'm going to do now is I'm actuallygoing to apply a pattern onto the layer mask.

And what I need to do is just go into Edit,Fill, select a pattern.

In this case, I'm going to choose somethingcalled Shag Rug and that's under Texture Fill.

I'm just going to click OK and this is thevery last one, this one here, and I'm just going to press OK, and notice what happened,right here on the layer mask.

If I hold Alt, Option on the Mac, and click,you'll see what was applied to the layer mask; so this is the before and after.

That's after, that's before.

And the way I can disable the layer mask isby holding Shift on the keyboard and clicking, and you'll see that red X on the layer maskwhen it's disabled.

So now that I've made these changes, I canpress Ctrl S, Command S to save.

Come back onto my composition and you'll seethat everything was updated accordingly.

So, now, you can see the difference.

It was a little bit darker before and I don'tlike that.

So, now, it's looking much better.

It's looking more like the way I wanted itto.

And even though I don't need to, I'm justgoing to clip this layer, the embossed layer to the pattern fill.

It's the same exact shape, so you don't reallyneed to.

The only reason I'm doing it is so I can keepthings organized and I know what's affecting what.

What I'm going to do now is I'm just goingto duplicate this Pattern Fill layer and I'll just call it "back shape" because that's reallywhat it is.

So I'm just going to call it back shape.

I'm going to duplicate it, Ctrl J, CommandJ on the Mac, and I'm going to click and drag this on top of the emboss layer, and I'm goingto clip it.

Ctrl Alt G, Command Option G on the Mac, andI'm going to bring the Fill Opacity all the way down to zero, and then, I'm going to doubleclick on it and I'm going to apply a Bevel and Emboss.

And what I'm going to do now is just increasethe Depth to something around 235 seems okay and bring the Size up to about, maybe, 9 or10.

We'll leave it at 9.

The highlight is set to Screen and that'sfine.

I'm just going to increase the Opacity allthe way up.

And for the Shadow, I'm just going to bringthat down just a little bit, so maybe, somewhere around 63.

The Angle and the Altitude at 61 and 21 isgood.

I want the light coming in from the top rightin and that's where the light is coming from this is what this icon represents.

Then I'm going to click on Contour and I'mgoing to change the Range to a very low number, something like, maybe, 2 or 3, and look atthe difference.

If I leave it at 100%, notice the bevel here.

At 100, it's fairly smooth.

If I bring it down all the way to 0 (zero),it's a very sharp bevel, and that's what I want; something that's really sharp, so 3%,then, I'm going to press OK.

And this is what we've got so far.

And, actually, you know what? I'm looking at the emboss and, maybe, I'mgoing to increase the Opacity just a little more, maybe 70.

So, now, it looks like these cracks have moredepth to them, and that's what I want.

What I'm going to do now is click on thistop layer and I'm going to add a Gradient Fill.

I'm going to set it to Radial and the colorsthat I want are black and white.

So, if you have something that is not thedefault colors, you can just click on Reset Gradients, press OK, and just click on theblack and white.

But what I'm going to want is the white tobe in the center and black in the outside, so I'm just going to click on Reverse.

I'm going to press OK and I'm also going toclip this to the rest of the group, so Ctrl Alt G, Command Option G on the Mac, I'm goingto double click on the Gradient Fill icon and I can click and drag this fill, and Iknow the light is coming from the top right, so I'm just going to place that there somewhere.

And what I'm going to do is I'm also goingto decrease the Scale, perhaps, to something much lower, maybe half, 50%.

I think that's going to work.

So I'm just going to leave it there for nowand I'm going to press OK.

I'm going to change the Blending Mode to Overlayand I'm going to change the Opacity to something like 65, something like that.

I don't need a mask so I'm just going to deletethe mask, that way I keep things clean.

Things are looking pretty good so far.

Something I'm going to do now to help us seethings a little bit better, is I'm just going to click on the bottom here and I'm goingto add a solid color and I'm going to set it to black and press OK.

And, actually, it created a clip out of it.

That's okay, I'm just going to drag it out,place it at the bottom.

And I'm going to delete the layer mask sinceI don't need it and I'm just going to call this "Background.

" So we want the black background, and I justthought about one quick tip I can show you.

If you go into the fly out menu and choosePanel options, you can uncheck Use Default Mask on Fill Layers, and that way, when youcreate a new Fill Layer, it has no mask, so it saves you the time of deleting those masks.

Okay, so I'm going to zoom out, just so youcan see what we've got going on here a little bit better.

What I'm going to do now is I'm going to clickon the back shape copy and I'm going to click on the Gradient Fill, and I'm just going toput those into a group, Ctrl G, Command G on the Mac, and I'm just going to call this"Back shape.

" I'm going to enable the top shapes group andI'm going to convert that into a Smart Object, so now we have that in one smart object.

What I'm going to do now is something similarto what I did before.

I'm going to start applying textures or patternfills to be more accurate, so I'm going to click on Pattern and I'm just going to pressOK, and I'm going to clip it to the top shape smart object, and the pattern that I'm lookingfor is Sandpaper and Erodible Texture, so I'm going to select Erodible Textures andSandpaper is the last one here.

I'm going to press OK.

And I'm going to change the Blending Modeto Soft Light and the Opacity will go something along 40%, and that seems to work fine, andthen, I'm just going to rename this to "Sandpaper" just so you know what that is.

Then, I'm going to create another pattern.

This pattern is going to be the Stucco number4 and that one is found under Texture Fill number 2.

Texture Fill 2 and the one that I'm lookingfor is this one right here, Stucco 4.

I'm going to press OK, and I'll rename thatas well.

I'm going to change the Blending Mode of theStucco 4 layer to Soft Light and I'll leave the Opacity at 100%.

That looks pretty good.

What I'm going to do now is I'm going to adda solid color, and the color really doesn't matter.

I'm going to press OK, leave it at black,clip it to the smart object like all the other textures and bring the Fill Opacity to zero.

And what that allows us to do is to applyany layer styles, but only the layer styles are visible and not what's in the Fill colors.

So, for example, in this case, I'm going toadd a Bevel and Emboss.

And if I click on Texture, it creates thattexture, but if I bring the Opacity down to zero, notice that I don't see the originalcolor, that's because the Fill Opacity is set to zero.

If I bring the Opacity up, notice how it'snow black.

If I bring the Opacity down, you can sortof still see the black in there, but by having the Fill Opacity at zero, these black pixelsbecome invisible, and whatever color pixels you have here doesn't matter, as long as youbring the Fill Opacity to zero, it will be invisible, and then, I can play around withthe textures, and that's what I'm going to do.

I'm going to add a Bevel and Emboss, and aBevel and Emboss is going to be fine at 100% and everything else is pretty much okay.

The only things I'm going to do is bring thehighlight and the shadow all the way up, and then, I'm going to click on texture here toapply a texture onto the shapes.

The texture that I need is Shag Rug, whichwe've used before, so I'm going to click on Texture Fills, press OK, and it should bethe last one.

This one here and this is what that givesus.

This is a result that we get.

And I think the Scale is fine at 100% butI think the Depth is way too high.

And, also, it's coming up at us.

I want it to sink in, so I'm just going touse negative numbers and I'm going to use something like -25, and you see what thatcreates there.

I'm going to press OK, then I'm going to clickon the "top shapes" smart object.

Press Ctrl J to duplicate it.

I'm going to click on the bottom one and dragit all the way up and clip it to the rest, Ctrl Alt G, Command Option G on the Mac.

And I'm going to do something similar.

I'm going to bring the Fill all the way tozero and I'm going to apply a Bevel and Emboss, and this time, for the Bevel and Emboss, Iwant the size to be at 3 and just bring the Highlight and the Shadow all the way up.

I'm also going to click on Contour, but thistime itís fine at 50%.

I'm just going to press OK.

So this is the result that we get.

I'm going to zoom in just so you could see.

It just helps us create this nice Bevel onthe outline of the dinosaur.

And, actually, maybe I'm going to bring therange a little bit lower, so that's zero, that's way too much.

And, maybe, 40, maybe 45; between 40 and 50,so we'll just go 45.

That looks pretty good, so I'm just goingto press OK and we'll leave it there.

I'm going to collapse this just to give usmore room and I'm just going to call this layer "Texture bevel," just so you know whatthat is, and I'm just going to call this one "Shape bevel," and I'm going to create anothersolid, but, again, the color doesn't matter.

I'm going to clip it to everything else, CtrlAlt G, Command Option G on the Mac, bring the Fill all the way down to zero, and whatI'm going to do is I'm going to double click on it to bring up the Layer Style Window.

I'm going to add another Bevel and, this time,I'm not going to change anything here.

I'm just going to add Contour and it's fineat its default of 50%, then I'm going to click on Color Overlay and I'm going to add white,and I'm going to change the Blending Mode to Overlay, and the Opacity to something like30%.

Then I'm going to click on Drop Shadow andI'm going to give it a very small drop shadow, so I'm going to Distance at zero, Size atzero, give it a little bit of Noise, maybe 1 or 2%.

And I'm going to increase the Opacity of theShadow to 100%, then I'm going to press OK, and this is what we get, but that's not all.

What I'm going to do now is I'm going to adda layer mask.

I'm going to hold Alt, Option on the Mac,and click on the Layer Mask icon to create a black layer mask that hides everything.

And I'm going to also zoom out so you cansee what we're about to do.

With the Layer Mask selected, I'm going topaint with white.

If you have a Wacom tablet, this is whereit's going to become really useful.

I'm going to be using the tablet at this point.

If you don't have one, don't worry about it.

It's not a big deal.

You can use the mouse, but, unfortunately,you won't have some of the pressure sensitivity or maybe some of the control.

You can do just fine with the mouse.

Anyway, with this Layer Mask selected, I'mgoing to select white and have a soft brush selected, and I can start painting in in areasto make them pop out, you know.

It creates this interesting bevel here insidethe dinosaur.

It's going to help us create areas that aresticking out, so think of the shape of the dinosaur as a fossil, and fossils are notcompletely straight.

They have different extrusion levels, so someareas are low, some areas are high, so this is what we're trying to duplicate.

Also, the Opacity at 100% for my white brushis probably not the best.

Add in a Flow, so that way I can build upand if you make a mistake like I'm not really liking that right now.

You can just change your color to black andjust paint with black and, you know, start all over again if you want to.

Switch back to white.

I'm going to press X on the keyboard.

If you press X on the keyboard, these colorsalternate.

If you have a different color selected, like,maybe, a red.

Right now it's not going to show because we'rein the Layer Mask, but if you want to have black and white; if black and white are notyour default colors, just press D on the keyboard for the default X or alternate.

So, with white, I'm going to start creatingsome shapes here, maybe something like that.

And it's totally up to you where these shapesgo.

I'm just sort of guessing.

If you have a reference file of the fossilor something like that, then go off of that, but you know, right here I'm just sort ofguessing where these extrusions would go.

Anyway, you probably want to spend a littlemore time than I'm going to do here just because, you know, this is a tutorial and, you know,I probably would spend, you know, maybe even an hour just getting this right.

Another thing you want to do with this techniqueis make the pen tip really, really small, and you can sort of create these lines here.

You just don't want to have a lot of flatareas.

It just makes it more realistic and, remember,this area here is going to be covered with text, so you don't have to be too exact.

I just don't want things to be too flat.

And, again, I'm going a lot faster and I probablyshould, but you get the idea.

Okay, another thing that you might want todo is I'm going to add another layer and with this layer, I'm going to paint with black,and I'm going to make the tip really, really small.

And what I want to do with this layer, I wantto bring the Opacity up to 100% and the Flow to 100%.

I just want to paint in cracks, maybe that'sa little too small, maybe 1 pixel brush is not the best, so I'm going to increase thesize to, maybe, three, and that's probably good enough.

And I'm just going to paint in cracks on therocks or fossils or whatever this is, like so.

And what I want to also do is I'm going togive these cracks a Bevel and Emboss to make them look a little more realistic, so I'mjust going to double click on this layer, and before I do that, I'm going to renameit.

I'm going to call it "cracks.

" And I'm going to give it a Bevel and Embossand the bevel is fine at its default.

I don't really need to change anything else;maybe bring down the Shadow; actually, now that I think about it and bump up the highlight,I think that will be okay.

Also, click on the Contour and you can seethe results down here.

Actually, one thing that I'm thinking aboutright now is the direction set to up, you want it pointing down.

So it looks like it's protruding into therock and I'm actually going to bring down the Opacity a little bit, maybe at 90, andmaybe even the Fill as well; maybe it's too strong, so maybe bring it down to about 74-75,and that looks pretty good right there.

That looks a lot like a crack and you cancome around and mess with this more if you want to.

I'm still not 100% happy, but I think thatthis will work.

Actually, we'll just leave it at 50.

And with this cracks layer, I can still comein here and paint my cracks, like so.

And, again, in this type of work, you wantto spend a lot more time than what I'm spending, just because, you know, I don't have the timein the tutorial to show you every single brush stroke that I would do, but you get the idea.

You want to learn these different techniquesand then apply them to your own composition.

So I'm just going to add a few cracks on himas well.

And, by the way, if you just keep going overand over in the same area, it creates a really deep one, but you don't really want to dothat.

You sort of want to, maybe, give it– Youdon't really want to make them too deep or too distracting.

And remember, half of these cracks I'm addingare going to be covered by the text and that's okay.

It makes it more realistic if there are thingsthat are coming out of the background that you really can't see or you can barely makeout.

And I'm also going to clip it.

Again, it's not necessary to clip in thiscase, but I'm just going to do it, just so it's all organized.

And I'm looking at some of these cracks, andI still think they're too strong, so I can even bring the Opacity down even more, somaybe 70%.

And you can play around with that until youfind something that you like for your own composition, but we'll leave it there fornow.

What I'm going to do now is I'm going to adda Gradient Fill, so I'm going to go into Adjustment Layers, click on Gradient.

We want a Radial Fill.

We want it black and white, and we want thewhite in the inside, so we're going to click on Reverse, press OK.

I'm going to create a clip out of that, doubleclick on the Gradient Fill icon, bring the scale down, and drag it over to wherever Ithink the highlight should be, which is somewhere around there.

Here, bring it up higher, maybe somethinglike that, and I'm going to press OK.

I'm also going to change the Blending Modeto Overlay and change the Opacity to something like 60, and, yeah, that looks pretty good.

We'll leave it at 60 for now.

What I'm going to do now is I'm just goingto zoom out so you can see what we've got.

Everything is looking pretty good and I thinkit's time to work on the shadows that this light is creating, so we're going to createsome shadows for the dinosaur here, so it's essentially the shadows for the top shapes.

So I'm going to click on the top shapes, holdShift, click on the Gradient Fill, press Ctrl G, and I'm just going to call this "top shapes.

" I'm going to press Ctrl J, Command J on theMac on that smart object, so I can get a duplicate of that, which is the top shapes, and I'mgoing to click and drag down to get it out of the group, see how it's now aligned tothe left, and then, does not have that indentation.

That means it's no longer part of the group.

I'm going to double click on the side of thelayer to bring up the Layer Style window, click on Color Overlay, and choose a blackfor that.

Then, press Ctrl T to transform and scaleit in by holding Shift and Alt, Shift Option on the Mac, and scaling it in, like so.

Then I'm going to make a duplicate copy ofthis, Ctrl J, and I'm going to go into Filter, Blur, Motion Blur, and a Motion Blur of anangle of 65 and a distance of 52 is pretty good, so I'm going to press OK, and I'm goingto zoom in, just so you can see what I just did there.

So I'm going to turn that off and I'm goingto enable it.

It just creates this interesting looking shadowthere.

Also, for your original shadow, I think thatit's too sharp, so I need to blur that a little bit.

So I'm going to select the original shadowshape that I created, and, by the way, I'm just going to rename this, just so we knowwhat they are, "shadow" and I'll just call this one "motion shadow" just so you knowwhat effect they applied.

Okay, so on this original shadow, I'm justgoing to go into Filter, Blur, Gaussian Blur, and it's just going to blur it.

Do you see that here? And 3.

7 seems to be good.

I don't need a sharp line here and this iswhat this is giving me.

I'm going to press OK.

I'm going to zoom out again, just so we cansee what's going on, and things are looking pretty good.

I'm just going to select these two smart objects,press Ctrl G, Command G on the Mac, and I'm just going to call this "shadow" just becausethis is what this group is holding, the shadows.

All right, it's time to work with the text.

But, actually, before we do, let me just workon one other thing.

I'm going to work on the clouds that are goingto be around the shapes, so I'm going to add a new layer, then go into Filter, Render,Clouds.

Make sure the black and white is your foregroundand background color, then I'm going to click on the Layer Mask icon and do that again,Filter, Clouds.

This time, we can just select Clouds fromup here or press Ctrl F, Command F on the Mac.

I'm going to create a new group out of that,Ctrl G, Command G on the Mac, and it creates a group that puts that layer in there.

Add a new layer mask, hold Alt, Option onthe Mac.

It makes it black, which hides everythingin that layer.

Then if I paint with white, I can bring what'sin there.

And I'm going to use a brush, Soft, and I'musing the Wacom tablet again and I'm just going to tap in certain areas to bring thoseclouds back, like so.

It was a big brush and I just tapped in certainareas to bring those back.

So, now, it looks like we have some cloudsor smoke or something like that, and that's exactly what I wanted.

Now it's time to work with the text, so I'mgoing to zoom in this area here, because this is what we're going to be working with thetext.

I'm going to click on the Text Tool and youcan use whatever font that you want.

If you have Photoshop CC2014, you can clickon this icon here, which is going to bring up Typekit and you can select a font out ofhere, and you can click on a lot of different options.

But what we really want to do is search fora specific one.

So I'm going to click on Search Typekit andtype in Expo, and the one I'm looking for is Expo Sans Pro.

I'm going to click on that, and I can clickon Use Fonts, and I already have it synced, so I don't need to sync it, but you may not,so you can just click on this on a button that's going to look similar to this.

It's going to sync it on to your Photoshop.

Once you do that, you can go into Photoshopand you can click on this filter icon here and it's going to show you all the Typekitfonts that you currently have synced.

Here it isóExpo Sans Pro Bold.

I'm going to click on that and, now, I canuse that font, so I'm just going to click on the top there to create a new type layerabove everything else, and I'm just going to call this "Dino World," Ctrl Enter, CommandEnter, when I'm done.

Press Ctrl T, Command T to scale that.

I'm holding Shift, by the way, dragging fromthe corners, and put it into place.

Now, if you want to, you can find the fontthat looks like the Jurassic Park or I'm going to show you another little trick and I'm notreally going to do it just because we don't have time, but I'll just show you how to doit with one character, that way, you know how to distort text in Photoshop.

So I'm going to press Ctrl and click, that'sCommand Click on the Mac, under Text icon.

It's going to load the text as selection.

Then, I could click on the Paths tab and Ican click on the fly out menu and choose Make Work Path, then I can press OK, then I cango back into the Layers panel and add a solid color.

So I'll add a red, just so you can see howthat works.

So it creates a shape out of the selection.

You can click on these handles to change theshape of the text, so you may be able to create text that looks more like the Jurassic Parktext or whatever text that you may like.

And you can always come into the Pen Toolhere and add anchor points or delete anchor points if you want to.

So, in this section here, I have too many,so I can, just for example, delete the ones that I don't want.

But, anyway, I don't really want to do thatso I'm just going to delete the Color Fill and the reason there's nothing showing hereis I accidentally changed the Search feature to Selected, so I'm just going to click onKind to bring everything back.

And I'm just going to enable that layer again,dino world, and this is what I'm going to use, and, maybe one thing that I do want todo is if I double click on the text icon here, it makes a selection out of that and I canclick on this icon to bring up the character panel, and, maybe I can reduce the space in-betweenthe letters, so maybe something like -70.

And I can also increase the size now, sinceI have more space to work with, and maybe that works.

So Dino World, and I'm just going to placeit right there, right in the middle.

Okay, so what I'm going to do now is I'm goingto add a Pattern to this and like what we've been doing before, I'm going to clip it toeverything, but you already know how to do that, so I'm just going to click on TextureFill, press OK, and I'm going to select this Fill here, which is Blister Paint, and I'mgoing to press OK.

I'm going to clip it to everything and I'llcall it "Blister Paint.

" And, actually, right below that I'm goingto add another one.

I'm going to add one that we've been usingbefore, which is the Shag Rug, and that's under Texture Fill, and that's the last onehere, so we have these two.

On the Shag Rug, I'm going to rename thisto Shag Rug and I'm going to bring the Opacity down tosomething like 60%.

And for Blister Paint, I will leave the Opacityall the way up, but I'll change the Blending Mode to Multiply, and I'm going to Add a LayerMask to that, but it's going to be a black layer mask so it hides everything, so I'mgoing to hold Alt, Option on the Mac, hides everything, and I'm going to do a similarthing to what I did with the clouds there, so I'm just going to tap using the Wacom tabletand in just certain areas with white so it brings in some of those cracks that you seethere.

So I have a little bit more control how muchof those cracks I put down on the text, something like that, so this is with and without it.

So, as you can see, it makes a pretty bigdifference, and I think I'm missing, maybe some here and some there.

There you go.

That seems to work fine.

And what I'm going to do now is I'm goingto add a Bevel and Emboss to the text.

Double click on the text layer to bring upthe Layer Style window, click on Bevel and Emboss, and we want a depth bigger than that,so I'm actually clicking and using the mouse wheel to scroll up, so I want something like145 or so, and I'm going to bring this down to about 2, then I'm also going to click onContour, and I'm going to leave that at 50%, that's fine.

I'm going to click on Inner Shadow, but I'mgoing to change the color to white.

Nothing's going to show, but if I switch itover to Soft Light, then it will.

You can see a slight difference here aroundthe edges, and maybe bring the distance to about 3 and the size down to about 1, andI don't want to add any noise.

I'm going to also add a Drop Shadow.

I'm going to increase the Opacity to 100%,Distance to 15, and Size, I'll go up a little bit.

I'll do 9, and then, I'm going to press OK.

And our text is looking pretty good.

I'm going to add more shadows to the textand I'm going to do something similar to what I did with the dinosaur, so I have the textselected, I'm going to press Ctrl J, Command J on the Mac.

On the bottom layer here, I'm just going toright click on the fx icon and just click on Clear Layer Styles, and I'm going to addNew Layer Styles to that, so if I double click on the side of the layer there to bring upthe Layer Style Window, I can click on Color Overlay, set that to black, press OK.

Now, I can do a Filter, Blur, Motion Blur.

It's going to ask me if I want to convertit to a Smart Object or Rasterize it.

I'm just going to rasterize it.

I don't need to convert it into a smart objectand press OK.

So you can see what happened there.

What I'm going to do now is I'm just goingto move that down to about this area here.

I'm going to use the arrow keys on the keyboardand move that around.

And I'm going to actually duplicate that,Ctrl J, just to make that darker, and I'm actually pretty happy with that.

I'm actually going to do one other thing thatyou can apply to each of the letters, but I'm just going to do it on one letter, justfor the sake of time, and I'm going to zoom in so you could see.

I'm actually going to put everything in onegroup, so I'm going to click on the bottom one, click on the top one, Ctrl G, CommandG, and I'm just going to call this "text," and it has all the text layers in there.

And, at the very top, I'm going to createone layer.

Then, I'm going to grab the Pen Tool and I'mgoing to draw a line, a path.

Make sure you got a path selected.

It's going to go across the center of eachletter, so I'm going to click here, hold Shift, and find the center, and, maybe, click herein the center again, click and drag.

Keep those handles as straight as possible.

Make sure that line is going right throughthe center, and then, finish that out.

Then I can select the Direct Selection Tool,and maybe you bring this one up, so it's still in the center, and they're all in the center.

Okay, once you're in the center, make surethat you have a brush that's roughly about this big, which is, maybe, 4 pixels.

You can see that up here.

And, maybe, increase the spacing to 1%, andmaybe the Hardness to about 85 or so, and this is what it looks like.

And I'm going to paint it with black, so I'mgoing to go into the Paths, make sure my Path is selected; make sure that the layer is alsoselected, and I'm just going to click on this icon here, which is going to stroke that pathwith the brush that I have selected.

Then I can come back into the Layers paneland I'm actually going to press Ctrl H twice just to hide that path, so we can work withthe stroke that we created.

So, I'm going to double click on the sideof the layer here to make up the Layers panel, and I can add a Bevel and Emboss, and we wantto bring that down to, maybe, at 11.

And I'm actually going to change the styleto Emboss, and then, bring this down to zero, zero, and bring the highlight and shadow allthe way up, click on Contour, and I'll leave that at 100, that's fine; come back to Textureand add some texture.

And the texture really doesn't matter toomuch as long as you get some jaggedness, so maybe something like that.

I just don't want it to be completely straight.

You can change the depth if you want to ifyou don't want the jaggedness too strong, and that's it.

I'm going to press OK and I can bring theOpacity down to, maybe, 85 or so percent, maybe a little bit more, at 87 or 88, andI'm going to zoom out, just so you can see what that looks like.

I'm going to double click on the Zoom Tool,and that's what that looks like.

If you do that to every single letter, youcan get the same effect, I'll do another letter just to show you, maybe the W.

The "W" isactually a hard one.

It's hard as they, right in the center.

When you're done, then, you're going to pressEscape, so, then, you just have this line, and then, you can use the Arrow Tool to modifyit if you need to.

And this is really hard because if I movethis to the left, this line is too close to this edge.

If I move it to the right, this line is closeto that edge.

You have to find a balance, see like here,maybe, move this over to the right more; maybe move this one to the right, this one backto the left.

So, anyway, we have to play around with ituntil you get it right.

And once you do, you can just make sure thatthat path is selected.

I'm just going to select it and go into thePaths panel and click on Stroke, and it's going to stroke that.

And the reason it did that is we didn't havethe right brush selected.

See, I didn't click on the Brush here.

I'm going to click on Undo and I'm going toclick on that again.

Now it used the right brush, so I'm goingto press Ctrl H twice to hide that, and if I go back into the Layers panel and zoom out,you'll see the result.

And, of course, you'll have to do that forevery letter.

So I'm going to pause the video just for amoment and I'm going to finish this off, just so you can see how it looks when it's completed.

Okay, so I made a few adjustments, but hereis what I came up with.

Now, we're going to finish this off by addinga Color Lookup Adjustment Layer and that's just to give it some color.

I'm going to click on [inaudible] and, bythe way, I had a Path selected, which is why that happened.

I'm just going to delete these paths sinceI don't need them.

And, as you can see, once I delete them, theColor Lookup now is applied to the entire image, and that can bring the Opacity waydown to, maybe, something like 20%.

Now, there's a few other things you can doto enhance this image.

You can create, and I'm going to click ontext.

I'm going to click on back shape, press CtrlG, just to have all of that in one group.

And then, what you can do is create adjustmentlayers, maybe like a Curves Adjustment Layer and bring this all the way down, like so,change the Blending Mode to Luminosity, so you only affect the Luminance values and notthe colors, and make that black, so I'm going to press Ctrl I, Command I on the Mac to Invert,and I can paint with white, so I can darken certain areas of my logo here, but I wantto do that with a soft brush, and, also, I want to create a clipping mask to it, so I'mjust going to call this "logo.

" So the curve only affects the logo below it.

So I'm going to paint with white on the layermask here and you'll see how that is being adjusted, and then, I can use the Opacity,bring it to zero, and then, get it up just a little bit until you get something thatyou like.

You can do the same thing with Curves, justbring that up to create the highlight, just a stronger highlight.

And, also, clip it to what's below it, fillit with black, and paint with white, just to create a stronger highlight.

And, of course, you can use the Opacity andadjust that accordingly.

One other thing you can do is I'm just goingto disable every layer except for the dino world there.

And if you hold Ctrl Alt Shift E, CommandOption Shift E on the Mac, it's going to create a new layer and put everything that's visiblein that layer.

In this case, it was everything we had beenworking with, except for the Color Lookup and the clouds in the background, so we havejust a composite of the logo.

What you can do now is go into Filter, Sharpen,Unsharp Mask, and just sharpen it as much as you want, and then, use the Opacity tocontrol it; something like that.

Then you can use the Color Lookup to giveit that blue color.
