Gorgeous Geisha Art Poster Photoshop Tutorial


Resources


Step 1

Launch Photoshop and create a new document. I decided to use the Photo preset with the 4 x 6 size for printing on cards, but you can choose any size you wish.

Step 2

Click on "File > Place" and select the vintage paper texture. Scale the image to fill the document by clicking and dragging on the little black nodes. Drag the right edge a bit further until the majority of the shadow disappears, as we want the light area in the middle to frame our subject.

  1. I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your site. It appears like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before. Thanks

  2. I like it very much. I did something wrong, tha I could not do the last steps over the space where I hide the area selected. I must do it again. Thank you very much
