A step-by-step tutorial

Step 1

Background Creation
In order to create the background for a business card using Dosch Graphics: Abstract Vol. 1 we start with an empty image with e.g. 3 3/4 x 2 1/4 dimension (3.5 x 2 after cutting). Then we open the image file called Abs121.jpg and drag & drop it into the new composition. Adjust the size as needed.

Modify Image
The image is of course too intense, too contoured which makes a text placed over it hard to read. So we have to give the image a smoother appearance. First we can apply a blur filter. In Photoshop choose filter/blur/gaussian blur and enter a value of 7. We also want a monochromatic appearance - so by choosing image/adjustments/hue/ saturation and using the function colorize, plus by playing with the hue slider, we will make the image blue.

Step 2

Special effect
For a more original composition select randomly 5 to 7 horizontal stripes of different sizes, then copy them to a new layer (copy/ paste). Click on the layer/ layer style properties then select drop shadow. Also move the layer down or up a small distance. Repeat this operation two or three times starting each time from the base layer. The result will be a truly unique and more effective design.

Step 3

Adding a logo
Now we have to add the logo of the company. To have a nice effect on the software text add a text shadow by using the command layer/ layer style/drop shadow and add a text glow by using the command layer/layer style/ outer glow. This will make for a unique look of the text.

Step 4

Finally add the text content. You can use the same text effect as used in software, just by copying the layer style for the other layer.
