Tory Holt FULL PHOTO TUTORIAL!

Postby joelamosobadiah » Sat May 05, 2007 10:45 am

Here is my first tutorial, but it should be pretty easy to follow.

I will teach you how to make this sig:

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

The purpose of it is to basically show you the very basics of using stock photos for backgrounds and lighting and using adjustment layers in your sigs.

I only used the brush tool twice and that was with a soft round brush both times, so that's why I made this tut. I think it can vastly help some of the newer sig makers here. ;-D

Just click the preview to open it.

Hmmmm..... a tutorial for a tutorial huh. :-b

It's actually really basic.

Start out with a canvas about 200 pixels wider than your sig (personal preference really) do whatever you might want for your background, etc. Text is basic (I added a drop shadow to all of my text to make it easier to read).

As for getting the steps in there, I just had my sig opened in another window and started out with just the bottom layer showing, took a screen capture, pasted it into the tutorial file, cut it so that it just showed the part I wanted, and continue a LOT.
:-b

If you have any more specific questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best. ;-D

But yeah, its all text and screen captures.
