How to create a galaxy image in photoshop
In the last post, I made the homepage intro image using the gallery image I made in advance.
Go to related post !
Images of our galaxy are actually available from free image download sites like Pixabay. However, I recommend making your own if possible. Because if you want to express your digital art creation through Photoshop more artistically, it is best to avoid using images created by others as much as possible. Because if you borrow someone else's image too much, it's like the crow with the feathers of several birds in Aesop's fables, and it loses its true color. As this becomes a habit, Photoshop is only a tool for compositing, and it becomes increasingly difficult to use it as a tool to create artworks.
In this sense, today, I would like to introduce you to making a gallery image yourself with Photoshop.
First, open a new document in Photoshop and change the background color to black.
Add noise to the background black layer.
Go to Filter menu---> Noise--> Add Noise
And then you can adjust the value like below.
Here is the result screen.
Next, you can click the menu, Filter--> Blur--> Gaussian blur and adjust the value 1 px like below.
And then click the menu, Image ---> Levels.
Next, for seeing blinking stars, you can adjust the value like below.
And add the new layer for gradiation.
And click the Gradient tool.
Select the gradient color like below, and then you can choose also the color as you wish.
And then you can click the right side layer window like below. (drop down the menubar and click the Soft Light for colorful stars)
Then perform the following steps to represent the outer space more realistically. First copy the layer from Layer 0 (Cmd + J) and click on the black layer(Layer 0 copy) and go to the Render ---> Clouds of the filter.
Here is the result screen.
And then adjust the value on the right layer window like below.
Next, you can use Eraser tool for arrange the shape of clouds like below.
And in general, there are galleries in the space. Copy the space of the first layer using the square selection tool to express the galley like a bright band in the middle.
Then, only the selected band part adjusts the brightness to the brightest.
Below are the steps for adding the Milky Way.
Now, finally, we take advantage of the filter's lens flare feature to create a mysterious atmosphere.
Finally, the finished screen. I hope you all make the universe even better than me.
For instance, here is the galaxy image with adding other image and effects.
How to create an artistic header image in Photoshop
When you create a website, you need an image. In particular, from the homepage main intro image to the header image for each page, the header is decorated with an image that symbolizes each menu.
You can use these header images by downloading them from sites that provide free images, such as Pixar Bay. However, if you use the images you created yourself in Photoshop, you will feel a great sense of accomplishment. And give symbolism, philosophy, and meaning to the page menu, and consider the artistic aspect. You can enjoy the experience of turning even the image into a work of art.
The header image to be introduced today is the service menu intro image. The service is related to finance, and its motto is Find Cosmos in Chaos. It is one of the tasks to find order in the chaos. The purpose is to relieve the risk and anxiety experienced by investors by using a mathematical model that can predict scientifically in the unpredictable stock market. We need an image of a galaxy to symbolize the first chaos, unpredictability, and massive data.
In the next post, I will cover how to make a gallery image in Photoshop, which is essential for image creation introduced today. First, I loaded the gallery image I made in advance.
It will display a mathematical model with the universe in the background. Load the image.
Now we will naturally merge these two images.
Use the divide in the layer properties to make the mathematical model naturally distant in outer space.
Next, I load an image called Cityeye that I made in advance. I will use this image. I will upload the image production process later.
It will transform this picture. Go to 3D menu --> New Mesh from Layer--> Postcard.
If you use the Postcard option, you can adjust the angle to create a screen like the one below.
Add one more layer and paste the created image.
Creating a Weebly website
Recently, I made another Weebly website out of necessity. And I would like to show you how to make it until completing the primary screen step by step.
First of all, to create a website on Weebly, you need to enter the information below.
Name, password, email, country and then check the E-sign consent.
Once you sign up, and can find out the below screen.
We know you want a business website, but you should select “I want a personal website” here by clicking the “Try Weebly Websites” button. With a Weebly website, you can do everything listed on the business website side of the screen except “Automatically sync with Square POS.”
Next, you can choose your favorite theme to design your site. One disappointment is that Weebly does not provide a variety of themes unlike other blog builders. But I'm personally satisfied with the basic theme introduced here.
Weebly will then ask about your domain. We recommend building your site on a subdomain (e.g., yoursite.weebly.com) so you can publish your site and test it before it goes live on your real domain.
The domain name is searched for a name that has been thought of in advance. If someone is already using it, it will be marked as unavailable. If it can be used, it is displayed as Choose. At this time, click the Choose to obtain a domain name.
It’s best to upgrade your site now so you’ll have access to all the features Weebly provides as you create your website.
In my case, I decided to make a website first and then skipped this step.
Next is the editor window shown in Weebly. Through this window, you can change themes and create or edit individual pages. First of all, in my case, I will change the main homepage screen for a moment.
You can change the site logo using Weebly's logo editor.
And change the header image using the header image editor. In my case, I used the artwork I recently worked on digitally as an image screen. If you use your own image, you can work more freely without being restricted by image copyright.
I will upload the digital art image work process as soon as I have time. My future plan is to create a single tutorial by converting these tasks into a database.
The process up to this point showed the process of simply signing up for the Weebly site and creating a simple main site. The process of becoming the entire website will be uploaded as soon as it is organized.
The site below outlines the process of creating Weebly's homepage, from A to Z. It would be good for reference.
I hope that my little experience will be of great help to you, so that you can create a wonderful Weebly website.
Emblem style logo making
It's always fun to be able to create something yourself.
Today, I would like to briefly show you the process of creating an emblem-style logo using Illustrator.
A logo in the form of an emblem is a logo in which text and visual expression are combined within a certain mark, which is a combination of a logotype and a symbol.
Emblem-style logos are suitable for use anywhere, such as web pages, social media, or products. You can put your own brand history in the round space. For example, it is effective because you can put a lot of text in a relatively small space, such as year of establishment, website address, copyright indication, etc. In particular, these emblems can become history itself.
Let's make an emblem logo that can maximize the characteristics of text and symbols like this.
First, open a new file in Illustrator. And draw a round circle as shown below.
When drawing a circle, press the shift key at the same time to draw a symmetrical circle. Draw a small circle as shown below and put it inside.
Next, select the small circle inside and write the text by selecting the Type on A Path Tool among the Type tools from the toolbox on the left.
As references, I wrote "Designed by Myungja Anna Koh" on the right screen above.
When you turn the direction of the text after writing the text, hold the line in the red square below and rotate it.
Also write text at the bottom of the emblem. After writing, adjust the contents of the properties menu on the right to change the size, shape, spacing, etc.
Another thing to note here is that you have to rotate the blue line under the red square at the bottom to put the text in the desired position.
In my case, since the text is too close to the original, I changed the property that adjusts the spacing of the letters among the properties below and repositioned it.
When the text is complete, click the Direct Selection tool to change the color as desired.
Then, load the picture that will be placed inside the emblem.
Designate Color Burn of the Opacity attribute so that this picture will naturally melt into the emblem.
Below is the finished logo.
In fact, you will find that making your own is much more fulfilling and flexible than leaving it to a logo maker or someone else. Hope you all make your emblem logo great.
The first step in trademark registration, logo making
I've created a logo with trademark registration in mind before. I also worked as a graphic designer for a while in Korea, so I know how to handle photoshop and illustrator. So, I tried to make my logo and use it. However, I wanted to entrust it professionally through a company, so I looked into the following companies and assigned them.
The company below is a company called BrandCrowd.
You can customize the logo that suits you by searching for a free template provided by this logo company.
Below is the result of applying my customizing information.
If you click the download button, you can see the folder, standard like below.
Inside the standard folder, you can make sure the files, which related to design for your website.
But it's not free! I should pay $20 for applying my website.
If you don't have time, it's not a bad idea to try the above site. You can save time and, above all, because you can download various types of files together, you can apply it not only to your website, but also to your social pages and your products.
I thought it was a good experience, and this time I tried to make my own logo using Illustrator.
The target of the commission was to create a logo for a finance-related company. The draft, including the company name and the meaning of the logo, was drawn by the customer himself.
Below is the image implemented using Illustrator.
I think it's good that you can communicate with customers more smoothly and create a more dynamic logo when you make it yourself. Next, I will upload the process of how it was made using Illustrator.
