Default Photoshop question

Not sure if it can be explained here but maybe some direction as to what to search on google or youtube for tutorials. I would like to know how to create these colored layers that only cover part of my page as u can see in this image.

I'm no designer but I think the thin stripes of graduate purple are, well, gradients... and all the separate triangles and areas are layer masks, or layers on top of the background itself. There are probably like 100 elements in this one example, with all the text fonts and logos and such...

I would choose instead of Photoshop something like Corel Draw (Adope Illustrator maybe?) that allows photos, text, and geometric areas to be superimposed on each other.

This sort of thing can probably be done with layers and layer masks, and maybe a few other tools. Check this site out to see if there is anything here to help you - https://www.vandelaydesign.com/photo...dvertisements/ or this one - https://1stwebdesigner.com/easy-photoshop-tutorials/ .


A lot depends on how many of the components you have to build from scratch versus how many already exist and can be used with little or no modification.



Hope this helps.

I design stuff like that. It can all be done in photoshop, but sometimes I draw elements in a sign program, simply because I'm more comfortable (draw faster) drawing in the sign program. But it's all doable in PS. As mentioned above, it's all about creating layers.

Agreed it is all done in layers and is easily accomplished in Photoshop. This should provide you with a start to the process. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/us...er-basics.html

One hint, name your layers instead of just using the default layer designation. Makes it easier to go back and find a layer later to make adjustments.
