Make a movie poster
Design a striking film poster with larger-than-life characters using these simple Photoshop techniques. James Paterson is in the director’s chair...
If you need inspiration for a creative Photoshop project, take a look at the latest film posters. These are often at the cutting edge of Photoshop design, merging photography with type, graphics and effects. Here we’ll show you how you can create your own film poster, with a bit of a fantasy theme.
As well as learning how to position images and words for a striking design, we’ll also show you how to turn ordinary people into larger-than-life CGI-like characters with the Liquify filter.
What’s more, you’ll learn how to use layer styles to give your type impact, and we’ll even show you how to make a quick digital snowstorm. By using these professional-looking techniques you can make your own posters starring your friends and family, complete with your own fun film titles and taglines. You could even make posters for a movie that you’ve shot on your camera.
These skills aren’t just useful for posters; they will come in handy for any work that involves combining photography and type in an imaginative way.
