PHOTOSHOP TUTORIELS-Text Poster with Textures

Text Poster with Textures

This is another Text tutorial on creating a poster in Photoshop. Some textures will be required. You can download and use free Textures from http://www.deviantart.com/
I will be using Textures from the same place.
You can also download free fonts from http://www.dafont.com/
Photoshop provides quite a large number of Fonts with each version. You can also download additional free fonts.


This is the poster I will be creating.


Step 1 : I am using a large document as you can see, but still it is not large enough for a poster. If you want to make an actual one make sure that the Width and Height are more.


The Foreground/Background should be set to the default Black/White. If it is not press x and d on the keyboard to restore the default.

Step 2 : Press ALT+BACKSPACE to fill with the Foreground Color which is Black.


Step 3 : You can see where you can select the Fonts, set the Size, the Margin and the Text color. I have chosen Impact for the Font. It is available in all versions of Photoshop.


Step 4 : Set the Font Color by clicking in the top panel.


Step 5 : The Select Text Color dialogue box opens. Type in ffffff (stands for White). Click OK.
