Create Night Sky Photoshop Tutorial

Step 1

Create a new document in Photoshop and fill the canvas with black. Then add a new layer and fill this one with black too. Next click filter > noise > add noise and use these settings: Amount- 15%, Gaussian, Monochromatic. This will make the background stars.

Step 2

Now click Image > Adjust > Brightness and Contrast and use these settings

Step 3

Now duplicate the stars layer and click Image > Adjust > Brightness and Contrast and use these settings: Brightness- 85 and Contrast- 50. Now Edit > Transform > Scale this layer to about twice its size.

Now inverse the layer by clicking control-I and then bring up the contrast of these stars by clicking image>adjust>levels and use these settings: 230, 1.00, 250.

Step 4

Now inverse the layer again to set it back to the proper color (Control-I)

Next step is to set this layer blend mode to screen, click the eraser tool and pick a nice fuzzy brush. I use a bristle brush and made it nice and large. Then I started erasing random areas of each layer.

Step 5

Now flatten the image, click on the rubber stamp tool, set the blending option for the tool to Linear Dodge and start cloning different starry patches to create some clusters.

Here's the image so far

Step 6

Now click image > adjust > color balance, click highlights, and add some subtle blue.

Step 7

Next, add create a new layer, fill it with black and set the layer blending mode to Linear Dodge. Now use a feathered paintbrush and set the color to light blue, almost white and start painting over the clusters to give them some pop.

Step 8

Now add another new layer, fill it with black and set the layer blending mode to Linear Dodge. Now click Filter > Render > Lens Flare and use 105mm prime. This will make a star. Repeat this step a couple times and add more. Don't shy away from making a cluster of these as well. Also, be sure to use different sizes.

Step 9

Now combine all the lens flare layers by shift-clicking all the layer in that contain them in the layer palette and click control-E to combine them. Now click image > adjust > color balance, select highlights, and add some more blue.

Step 10

Now I selected the brush tool and used the chalk brush within the brush options and made a very large brush size set to opacity 20%. Now create a new layer and set the mode to Linear Dodge and start brushing in a color of your choice. I'm still using the cosmic bright blue.

That's it! There's many ways to do this so experiment and come up with what works best for you.

Create A Unique Web Template


Open the image inside Photoshop and then go to Edit > Define pattern. Choose a name for this pattern and click OK.
Create a new document with the following size: 960 width and 900 pixels height
Select Paint Bucket Tool, and in the option bar choose the pattern you just created


Click over your layout with Paint Bucket Tool. You will have something like this


Set the foreground color to #49290a and with Rounded Rectangle Tool create a shape, and place it in the middle of the layout


Add the following layer styles



You will have to add other shape over this brown shape. This time please use white color


Please use the same layer styles you have used a few seconds ago.



This is the result


On the bottom right side of the layout I will add some stock images with a flower pot and a sofa.


Under the layer with the sofa I will create a round shape with Ellipse Tool


I will go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur and I will use the following settings


In this way you will have a real shadow under the sofa


On the left side of the layout I will create some boxes with Rectangle Tool


All shapes have the following layer styles



I will add some text and the images


On the right side I will add some banners


I will create a dashed line between the posts.


To create the dashed line you need to use Horizontal Type Tool and use the following font and settings


My last step is to create a logo and some text buttons.


This is my final layout. I hope you like it. As you can see it was done very easy, and requires only some good stock images.
