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.
