Introduction:

Welcome to my Splatter Background Tutorial, follow each step carefully to succesfully achieve the shown effect. Remember, "Patience is bitter, but it's fruit is sweet.

You'll need the following:

Mugshot................................................................................​... Screenshot ................................................................................​.... Brushes

Now place the Mugshot on a new image and add the Brushes layer below it, then place the Screenshot layer in between and make it Invisible as shown.

To make a layer Invisible, click the eye buttom next to it.

Now the magic, place the cursor while holding the ALT key between the Screenshot layer and the Brushes layer till you see this symbol [Image: CM.png]
, then give it a click to succesfuly place a Clipping Mask.

You can also right-click the Screenshot layer and select Create Clipping Mask.

Always wondered how to do that. Nice Tutorial

It's a bit of a no-brainer for more experienced users, but for the newer guys it looks really informative.

Great tutorial for beginners Awkness, very nice. Smile

Hehe, I hope for a tutorial in the future, where you show how you edit the screenshots and the mugshots (like in your current sig), cuz I just love your sig style, your current one looks just awesome. Heart Big Grin

Everyone says my current signature looks good, yet I only spent 30 minutes on it, and regarding Mugshot Editing, you're doing great.

RE: [TUTORIAL] Splatter Background - techs181 - 01-08-2010 03:12 AM

Very Nice. I concur with TPangolin though. Very nice for the Photoshop newbies!

Ye, I know, shading and so on, but I love the way how you edit your mugs. The mugs in your sig look great even without much shading and so on imo. I'd love to know how you edit your mugs (and screenshots for the background). Big Grin

Wow! Great job dude Smile


RE: [TUTORIAL] Splatter Background - Acetonium - 01-08-2010 08:30 AM

Nice job Smile Simple and clean (the tutorial)
I'm surprised nobody has popped in to say "plsss help i donts understands anything!!!" Big Grin (not that the tut is bad. It's just the way it goes)

Keep it up!


RE: [TUTORIAL] Splatter Background - xPaRaNoIAx - 01-08-2010 11:20 AM

Its just as simple as that Tongue

Note to everyone not familiar with photoshop: the brush layer doesnt have to be back, but maybe easier to remember to keep it black, it might make things less confusing with other things. Also rightclick on the layer for options, you will also find clipping mask.


RE: [TUTORIAL] Splatter Background - Nameless Sniper - 01-08-2010 02:20 PM

Nice, always wondered how to do that Smile
