This text effect is a result of playing with Photoshop’s Transform feature. The main text is a silver-coloured metal effect, and the tranformations are glowing and spectacular. It is an easy effect to achieve, however, it has turned out to be relatively difficult to explain! If you come across any problems, glitches or things that make you say ‘What?!’ then please don’t hesitate to either contact me (right sidebar) or leave a comment below – I will try my best to make things clearer if necessary. Other than that, I hope you enjoy producing this effect as much as I did!
When you have been trawling around the internet for hours researching or searching, it is quite likely you will make a mistake inputting a website address, or somehow get lost on a site. How lovely, under those circumstances, to be directed to a custom 404 error page that makes you smile or think ‘that’s a bit different’.
I was very surprised to discover, from compiling this list, that so many graphic design websites and trendsetting companies don’t have an inspiring 404 error page.
It is considered politically correct to never blame your visitor for straying off course, although, of course, the fault could lie with them, or could be due to a broken link. However, these days some sites lay the blame entirely at the feet of the visitor, flying in the face of convention – and those are usually the funniest 404 error pages.
This list is made up of more than 30 individually designed 404 error pages, some are clever, some are funny and some are just better than a blank white page declaring 404 Error page not found!
Create a grungy gold text effect with sparkly flowers with a little retro design thrown in too. A very straightforward tutorial using many of Photoshop’s built-in tools and features.
I have created another set of gradients available for download at deviantart.com. This set of 8 gradients is based on summer colours.
I hope you enjoy these gradients!
Create this glowing swirl texture/background in a few easy steps using only Photoshop’s built-in tools.
There are many actions available to enhance your photographs, but sometimes a little extra work is required. This tutorial uses Photoshop’s blur filter and healing brush tool, along with a free action. You need to begin with a good quality image – repairing a poor quality image is a whole other tutorial. We will be improving the complexion, improving the skin tone and brightening the eyes.
