I included a channel of the inside shape of the billboard that our sign will be placed into. I also provided is this red, green, and blue image that we’ll use to create our overall LED pattern and thirdly, I provided this image of digital damage that we’ll blend into our sign. Their links are in my video’s description or project files.
Before we continue, make sure you click the Subscribe button to let you know as soon as I upload new Photoshop tutorials. First, click the lock icon to unlock the layer so we can make a new layer below it. Click the eyeball icon to temporarily hide it and Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the New Layer icon. We’ll fill the empty layer with a dark gray color.
To do this, press Shift plus the F5 key at the top of your keyboard to open the Fill window. You could also go to Edit and Fill. Open the Contents list and click “Color”. Pick black and in the Brightness field, type in 10%. Open your Horizontal Type Tool and pick a font. Creative Big Snake Editing
Bolder fonts work the best for this effect. I ll make the size 100 points, but feel free to adjust this amount depending on the font you choose and the amount of characters in your text. Make the Radius Smooth and center alignment. Creative Big Snake Editing
If the box INS t white, click it and when the color picker opens, pick white. Click on your document and type out your text. To center it on your document, open your Move Tool and press Ctrl or Cmd + A to select the entire document and Ctrl or Cmd + C to copy your text. Click the Align Horizontal Centers icon and the Align Vertical Centers icon. Creative Big Snake Editing
Deselect it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + D. Double-click an empty area of the text layer to open the Layer Style window. Click “Outer Glow”. The Blend Mode is Normal and the opacity to 30%. The color is white. Creative Big Snake Editing
If it isn’t, click the box and when the Color Picker opens, pick white. The Technique is “Softer”, the Spread is 0%and the Size is 60 pixels. The Contour is Linear and the Range is 50%. We’ll convert our text into a Smart Object, so we can modify it non-destructively, as well as allow us to replace it with different text and/or graphics without having to redo the effects. Click the icon at the upper, right corner and click Convert to Smart Object .
Go to Filter, Blur and Gaussian Blur. Blur it 1 pixel. Go back to Filter, Blur and Motion Blur. The Angle is 90 degrees and the Distance is5 pixels. Go to Filter one more time and click Pixelate and Mosaic. Make the Cell Size: 4 square. Next, we’ll create the LED lights pattern, but first, let’s collapse the Smart filters to save some space in the Layers panel. Creative Big Snake Editing
Open the LED lights image I provided and simply go to Edit and “Define Pattern”. When this window opens, just click OK. Open back the Digital Damage document that contains your text. Creative Big Snake Editing
Click the Adjustment Layer icon and click “Pattern”. Open the pattern list and scroll to the bottom. You’ll see the LED lights. In this case, there are two, because I soviet earlier, as well.
Click it to fill the layer with the LED lights pattern Reduce the Scale to 30% Change the Blend Mode to “Multiply” We’ll brighten it by clicking the Adjustment layer icon and clicking “Levels” For the Input Shadows, type in 18, for the Input Midtowns, type in 2.6 and for the Input Highlights, type in 185.
Make the top layer visible and active and change its Blend Mode to Screen We’ll make a composite snapshot of our imageby pressing Alt + Ctrl +Shift + E on Windows or Option + Cmd + Shift + E on a Mac Normally, instead of creating a composite snapshot, we convert all of the layers into one Smart Object. But in this case, it’ll actually save us a step by creating a composite snapshot Press Ctrl or Cmd + A to select it all and Ctrl or Cmd + C to copy it.
In a few minutes, we’ll paste it into Vanishing Point, which will place it in perspective on the billboard Open the billboard image and click the New Layer icon to make a new layer In this empty layer, we ll be placing our LED lights sign Go to Filter and “Vanishing Point” I did an in-depth tutorial on vanishing Point, so if you’d like to watch it, I provided its link in this video’s description.
Zoom out by pressing Ctrl or Cmd and the minus key on your keyboard a couple of times To delete old grids, just press the “Backspace” key Place your cursor here at this corner of the billboard. Click and release Place your cursor here and click to make your first line of the grid Release and click here to make the second line.
Then, release and click here, which is approximately the point where the corner of the billboard would be if the top of our image wasn’t cropped off We’ll extend the grid to the other side of the billboard. To do this, go to the middle anchor pointed when you see this small white box with a black grid in it, press and hold Ctrl or Cmd as you drag it out.
We’ll match the grid to the perspective of this side of the billboard by dragging the corners. If it’s red or yellow, it’s just letting us know that the perspective is off Go anywhere inside the grid and press Ctrlor Cmd + “v” to paste our image into it Drag it inside the grid until it changes its perspective.
If you want to make your sign bigger or smaller inside the confines of the billboard, drag it over until you see a corner and click the Transform tool icon. Drag the corner out or in Then, drag it into position and click OK to accept it Notice our LED sign is on a separate layer. Open the Channels panel. If you don’t see it, go to Window and Channels.
Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the thumbnail of the Alpha 1 channel to make a selection of its shape. Open back the Layers panel and click the Layer mask icon to make a layer mask of the selection next to the LED lights sign. The layer mask softens the edges of our sign.
