Use layers, masks and actions (if you work with photoshop alot). Only recently (2-3 months) I discovered masks, and they're wonderful.

A small photoshop tutorial, by yours truly.

Here's a cool trick, you know in PS when you scan something into it an it's alittle crooked? Well this will straighten it super easy.

1. After you scan something or have some text that's croooked, grab the ruler (if you press on the eyedropper the ruler shows up.

2. Use the ruler to draw a straight line across the top of whatever you want to straighten.

3. after you got a line go to "image"...than "rotate canvass"....than "arbitrary."

4. Click arbitrary and voila the number of degrees and rotation (clockwise or counter) are automatically there like magic. Totally straight text or pic! This is super helpful if you're a graphic designer who scans logos and pics alot. I use it as much as the View New Posts button.

Can you say w00t!

How I made my sig biggrin.gif (I'm doing this all out of memory, so remind me if I miss something.

Photoshop tut: By Sitniz for the HL2C boards. Permission needed to be shared on another site. They say a magician never shares his tricks, but who needs magic when you have photoshop?

LAYER: Background
Step 1: Press D (for default colors)
Step 2: Filter > Render> Clouds
Step 3: Filter > Render> Lens Flare (the 105 one I think)
Step 4: Filter > Distort > Sphereize
Step 5: Smooth out that line with blur.

LAYER: Ring
Step 6:Circle marquee tools hold shift to make a perfect circle. Make a circle as big as you can fill the screen with. Fill it in with a light or dark grey.
Step 7: Make another circle marquee. Keep in mind this wil be the inside circle, so make it as big as you feel makes the left over space a nice ring. Delete this marquee.
Step 8: With both layers on, delete any of the cloud render you can see from behind the sphere (on the outside, not in the middle.
Step 9: With Ring layer active goto Filter > Render > Lighting Effects. Play around with this setting till you get a good shine.

LAYER: Tentacle (1,2,3,4)
Keep in mind for each tentacle you will create a new layer.
Step 10: Uses the retangular marquee tool roughly the height that you want your tentacle to be long. (Note: You can change tentacle length with Free transform later (Ctrl + t)).
Step 11: Fill marquee with gradient of white to another color. Be sure when you fill it in there is white in the middle surrounded on its right and left side, not top and bottom. This is a linear gradient I believe.
Step 12: With the marquee selected go to Edit > Transform > Perspective. Bring the top of the retangle to a point.
Step 13: Press Crtl + t for free transform, narrow your tentacle to a good size.
Step 14: With the tentacle selected go to Filter > Distort > Shear (Repeat around edges selected.) Play around with points and lengths until you get a good wavy tentacle.
Step 15: Rotate the tentacle to which ever way you want it yo be coming out of. Hide the end of it behind an edge of the ring.

Repeat steps 10-15for however many tentacles. Or, you can just copy paste into a new layer and play around with shear some more, but that doesn't give you and variations with the shading of your tentacles, thus dulling the end result.

LAYER: Text
Step 16: Install a cool font. The one I used was one called DreamScar. It came from a great site at www.1001freefonts.com. Favorite it.
Step 17: Place this layer in the top position.
Step 18: Type your text, set its color to pure white
Step 19: Right click on text layer select blending options.
Step 20: In the first setting set its mode to multiply. Your text should dissapear.
Step 21: Apply both Inner shadow and Bevel and Emboss Layer Styles from the lower menu.
Step 22: Play with settings until you have your desired effect
Step 23: (Optional) Send Sitniz some HC's tongue.gif

Hope you had fun. Now you're a PS mast0r.

Photoshop CS (or 8) is out.

Tip: Layerstyles are a lot more helpful then you may realize.
