أزهار التصميم Super Star Logo Welcome to! If you find this site useful, you might want to subscribe to our free newsletter for updates on our new Photoshop Tutorials and Articles. Wanna be a super star? First of all, create your own cool logo! You don’t know how to do this? Start by making a new document in Photoshop, something like 500×300 pixels and fill it with gradient (use colors of #c0cfcc and #e2e5de). After that you should stylize your background. After hat get out the Brush Tool and a hard round brush about 1 pixel with white color. A little dialog box will appear as in the screenshot. See the result on my picture below. Ok, now apply the Drop Shadow layer style for current layer. Looks better than before. Ok, move to the next step. In the above image I’ve used a font called AG ForeignerULB (65 pt, Crisp), which is sadly a commercial font. Now, your image should now look like the image shown below: Ok, I think it is very good logo. Print a couple of white stars on the words. Ok we are done!
