Creating a Typographic Wallpaper After writing my previous tutorial here about Creating a Zune in Photoshop, several viewers asked if I’d share how I created the wallpaper graphic. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to make something similar, and it’s quite easy! What is Typography? In order to create a typographic wallpaper, it would make sense to know a bit about Typography in the first place. Typography is the art and technique of arranging movable type. What does this mean? This is by no means an in depth look at typography. Step 1 – Creating the Background The background of our wallpaper is going to help set the mood. Create a new document with the dimensions you desire. Step 2 – Setting Our Text Boundary Since I want my text to be in the shape of a 9 (in relation to 2009 and Tutorial9), the easiest way to achieve the shape is going to be to create a large 9 and then use it to place our other text. Step 3 – Placing the Type Now that we have our boundary area, we are ready to start adding our type. Simple enough?

How to Create an Abstract Wireframe Text Effect In this text effect tutorial we will demonstrate how to create an abstract wireframe text effect. Let's get started! Let's start by creating a new document which is 900 px wide and and 600 px high at a resolution of 300 pixels/inch. Make sure the Color Mode is set to RGB. Fill the "Background" layer with Black. Get the Type Tool and type your text. While the text layer is selected on the Layers Palette, hit Command/Ctrl + E to merge the text and the "Background" layers. Now go to Filter > Distort > Wave and use these settings: Type: Square, Number of Generators: 1, Max Wavelength: 635, Min. We'll add another displacement effect to our text and we're going to use Fragment filter for that. Now go to Filter > Stylize > Glowing Edges, set Edge Width to 1, Edge Brightness to 6 and Smoothness to 1. We're going to copy this image to a new alpha channel and make a selection out of it. Now go back to the Layers Panel. It is time to add some lighting effects now. Now we'll create the background.

HDR Photoshop effect The most important is first step, it is a base of HDR Photoshop effect. Use command image > adjustment > shadow/highlight and set up values: shadows amount: 50%, tonal width 45%, radius 41 px; High-light amount 83%, tonal width 76%, radius 1120px; Duplicate layer "base" and set up its layer blending to Color Dodge. This blending gives picture strong colors and cause that light areas turn into pure white. In next step it will be repaired by another layer blending. Do the same thing as in the second step, but layer blending is set up to Linear Burn now. Fourth step is easy, it profits from third step. Now it's time to adjust picture look, try to experiment with layer opacity. Set up foreground color to white and use command select > color range with fuzziness set up around 100. The last step colorize picture into red tones. I use some other adjustmenst to achieve HDR look. If you are interested in real HDR, try article on wikipedia or on my blog: HDR fotografie
