This week, intrepid Photoshop explorer and lynda.com author Deke McClelland gives you no less than the infinite universe. Actually, this installment of Deke’s Techniques shows you how to create your own galaxy view, complete with stars, lens flare, and space gas, all created completely from scratch in Photoshop. Starting with a layer of nothing but black pixels, Deke uses smart objects and classic Photoshop filters to create an infinitely customizable space-scape that you can use in your own design voyages. The universe is at your command.
Next week, Deke will put this starfield to work as a useful background for dramatic repoussé text. In fact, every week Deke brings you a new free technique in this course, and lynda.com members can view the entire collection—plus some exclusive members-only techniques—inside the Online Training Library®.
