How to Create Business Template in Photoshop
step-005[6]
Duplicate this shape and change the color to some light gray (like #9b9b9b) by clicking on the color indicator next to layer's name.
step-005b[6]
Now you can rasterize both layers. Let's make some naming system here for better clarity. The white layer will be 'base layer' and the gray layer will be 'shadow layer'. Okay, so head to the blending options of base layer and apply these settings:
step-005c[6]
step-005d[6]
step-005e[6]
step-005f[6]
Now blur a little with Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur our shadow layer, but really, a little, with radius like 0.5 to maximum 1 pixel. You should get the following:
step-005g[6]
Create a clipping mask layer clipped to a base layer and apply a bit of gray radial gradient.
step-005h[6]
step-005i[6]
Now you can add a sample text and a search icon. How to do one? It is a piece of cake. I will show it on separate document. Firstly, create a circle shape, pretty big and duplicate it.
step-005j[6]
Then go to Edit > Transform > Scale and scale down the copied layer. I've changed it's color for you to see, but it actually doesn't matter. After transformation rasterize both layers.
step-005k[6]
CTRL+Click on the thumbnail of copied layer (red one), select the base layer in layer's window and hit DELETE on keyboard. Then delete/hide copied layer and you will see a circle like this one.
step-005l[6]
Draw rectangular shape (could be rounded) somewhere under the circle. Then hit V to select the move tool.
step-005m[6]
Now select both layers in layer's window (use CTRL or SHIFT) and while you have move tool active, click this icon so the shapes will center theirs middle points.
step-005n[6]
While you have still both layers selected, go to Edit > Transform > rotate and add the rotation to the shape of about 35-45 degrees. That's it.
step-005o[6]
Merge the shape and paste it to the layout, then scale it down and add a bit of white shadow in blending options so it will get a bit of pressed effect.
step-005p[6]


Step 6 - Main menu

Our main menu will be very, very simple, but, we will add a call to action button next to it so actually the whole menu will pop. It's strongly vivid among grayscale colors so it will always grab attention. First off, let's make that call to action button. I will try to make its width the same as a search box, so you can add some guide there. I've created the shape with color #e55a21 and rasterize it right away.
step-006[6]
Duplicate it and move copied layer (the one below) 1 pixel down (with arrow key on your keyboard), then go to Image > Adjustment > Brightness/Contrast and apply similar settings, so you will get simple shadow underneath the button. Also blur it with Filter > blur > Gaussian blur by 0.5 pixel.
step-006b[6]
step-006c[6]
Now we will create few clipping mask layers to bring some life into the button. Start with a gradient from bottom to top with color #ce4614. Change its opacity to 10-35% (adjust later) and blending mode to multiply.
step-006d[6]
It could be hardly visible for now, but we will make such color transformations that you will really consider its 10% opacity. From the top center make a small radial gradient with color #f9b242.
step-006e[6]
Make a selection from the main button's shape (CTRL+Click on the thumbnail in layers window) and fill it with #ffd47b. Then go to Select > Modify > Contract and apply 1px reduction. In the end hit DELETE on your keyboard so you will get 1px inside border around the button.

  1. I have been trying so hard to make my own templates. There are so many tutorials out there, but it always seems like one or two things are missing from the final product. Either that, or I am missing something within the instructions.
