Background

Some time ago there was a discussion on how to create a background...I swear I was taken to a tutorial link. At the time, I had no interest or need, now I do. Does anyone remember the link, the site or can provide me some guidance. thanks...

Re: Background

There are many ways to make a background. It would help if you gave an idea of what you are trying to accomlish.

Re: Background

Actually I am trying to create some different backgrounds for business cards. I read a tutorial somewhere that showed various methods, but I can no longer find it. Just wondering if anyone else saw a similar site.

Re: Background

Not sure of the type of background you want but here is a link to a tutorial

http://www.photoshopessentials.com/p...io-background/

and a link to a texture brush which i use a lot (click on the textured brushs then the brush can be downloaded at the bottom of the page use diferent opacity's to get different effects etc, then when you make one you like keep and just alter the colour to suit what you are doing

Re: Background

Thanks guys...Palms1 you always have the right link. And I haven't heard from Ziaphra is a while...

Lastly...this is for swampy...
12. Florida State
Five ESPN 150 prospects
Offensive tackle Zebrie Sanders (Clayton, Ohio/North Clayton) was a nice pickup down the stretch, but Bobby Bowden did not close as strong in 2008 as he usually does. FSU did sign four top-50 overall prospects and got off to an unusually fast start. ESPN's No. 5-rated corner Terrance Parks (Fairburn, Ga./Creekside) fits perfectly in legendary defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews 4-3/cover 2 scheme and could challenge for early playing time as he is already on campus this spring. Parks teams up with inside linebacker Nigel Bradham (Crawfordville, Fla./Wakulla) and outside 'backer Nigel Carr (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast) to give it three top-five positional prospects on defense, all with the skills and physical development to contribute early. Help is on the way at quarterback with E.J. Manuel (Virginia Beach, Va./Bayside), which may have Jimbo Fisher thinking back to his days of grooming JaMarcus Russell at LSU.

Re: Background

Skydog... Thanks for the update. As FSU has proven, you get these all star recruits in and then they under achieve. I'm becoming an advocate of give me lesser talent, but bigger heart. I'm sick of the prima donna "me, me, me" players.

Good link, Palms.
