Creating a Mac-Type Background in Photoshop
We begin with a blank canvas and then draw a subtle gradient across it. (I’m using a 1280x1024 canvas here)
Don’t be fooled by the black border incidentally, that’s just photoshop. So anyhow I’ve chosen two orange colours that are very similar to each other to make a very subtle gradient indeed
Add a NEW LAYER
Now take your Polygonal Lassoo Tool (shortcut key L) and draw in a rough triangular selection as shown.
Then take a really fat soft brush (size 300 or so) and draw some faded in white with the edge of it, again as shown. Be careful not to make it too strong however
‘Set your white from step 2 to ‘OVERLAY
Now again take your Polygonal Lassoo Tool and do a similar trinagle but back and against it (like shown). This time add some black. I actually used a gradient fill here using Black and nothing. You can get this type of gradient by selecting your gradient tool then dropping down and choosing the second one along
.Set your black layer to Overlay & 34%
Now use the Pen Tool and draw a nice looking curve. The secret to nice curves with the pen tool is dragging the handle a long way.
Join the path back up so its one continuous blob, then right click and …”select “Make Selection
You should now have a selection of a nice curve (as shown). Once again use the gradient tool this time with White fading to nothing and add some white.
Set this layer to Overlay and you should have something similar to whats shown
And again grab the Pen Tool and this time make a new even more interesting shape. You can see the shape I created on the left…
Close the shape back in on itself so its one continuous path and again …”right click and choose “Make Selection
Now with your selection, grab that fat soft brush again (size 300) and add some Black just at the top on one side (as shown).
…Don’t let go of your selection as we’ll need it for the next few steps
Now choose a selection tool (doesn’t matter which one) and hit the Down arrow key 10 times. You need to have a selection tool on or else you can move your selection around and instead Photoshop will try to move some of your artwork (since you are on a new layer it will give you an error) so make sure you’ve chosen a Polygonal Lassoo tool or one of the others.
Now press CTRL-SHIFT-I to inverse your selection. Then with your soft brush (size 300) paint some black down the bottom as shown. When you’re done set the layer to ‘Overlay’ and fade it back to 60%
Now press CTRL-SHIFT-I to inverse your selection again (back to the original) and this time paint some nice white as shown. Note that because we’ve moved our selection down back in Step 8, this won’t quite align with the black
Now grab your gradient tool, choose white to nothing and set it to ‘Radial Gradient’. Then add a white light up the top left as shown. Set this layer ’to ‘OVERLAY
Now at the moment the colours aren’t looking quite right, if I was really energetic I’d go back to the beginning and start again with a different set of oranges, but instead we’re going to do a quick adjustment…
On the new layer add a fill of a good orange similar to as shown. Set the blending mode to “Colour” and opacity to 55%. This should adjust nicely
.Now that’s looking a bit better
Now once again use the usual method of using the pen tool to draw a nice curved selection (as shown) and then right click and choose “Make …”Selection
Use the White – Nothing gradient and add a smooth white transition from ‘left to right as shown. And set the layer to ‘Overlay
As you can see we’re getting close. Now create one final curved selection down in the bottom left add a white gradient fading to nothing ’our favourite tool as you can see) and switch to ‘Overlay)
For the final touches I added a tinge of black overlayed bottom right and a bit more white overlayed on the top left. But these are inconsequential changes.
You might want to go through and polish yours up a little too at this point because other than that you’re done
