Eze - Making of

Let's start with the background image. Fill the layer with solid color...

1

... double click on layer to open its blending options, add gradient (overay) and a bit of inner glow (black, overlay).

2

To make this background look like a wall, I took the real photo of  a wall (taken by  me some time ago), turned it  to grayscale (Ctrl-Shift-D) and sharpened the wall texture by increasing image contrast.

3

then I pasted this image to our file and set its blend mode to soft light.

4

Next, we'll need a picture in  a frame. Let's start with the frame itself. Create a new layer set, new layer inside it, and draw a dark-red rectangle.

5

in menu, find select > modify > contract and contract selection by around 20 pixels.

6

hit Del to remove selected image.

7

Add the following layer effects:
Stroke (1pixel, outside, almost black), bevel (3-4 pixels, overlay mode), shadow (not too big). Tweak settings carefully, to make frame as realistic as possible.

8

underneath this layer, create new layer, fill it with darker grey, and add black Inner glow effect.

9

Now simply duplicate this layer set several times and distribute the copies here and there. For each frame, hit Ctrl-T (transform) and rotate but very slightly (not more than 1 degree).

10

Our frames are empty - we need pictures inside them. My idea is  to have one photo sliced into pieces. But before that, I need a single layer which would be container" for this photo. Select all frames (to do so

11

go to menu Select - Modify - Contract, and contract by around 40 pixels.

12

Create new layer and fill with solid color (doesn't matter which).

13

Paste the photo that you'd like to put inside the frames...

14

...and then simply hit Ctrl-G to group this layer with previous. Voila!

I really like the textures and lighting that you use for your backgrounds. They make an otherwise simple design look much more interesting.

Greetings, First, I love this concept! I've just subscribed to Vladstudio and apparently missed the posted source file for Eze. As I'm just learning Photoshop this looks like a great tutorial for learning purposes. Is there any change of reposting the source file? Either way, thank you and I love your stuff. BTW, I work at an elementary school in a computer lab and the students REALLY love your work. I've used your free wallpapers in the lab for years... THANK YOU!
