Bright template for a portfolio in Photoshop

As always, here’s what we’ll get as a result:

Materials for the lesson:

Textures

Macbook

Step 1

Create a new document 900 by 900 pixels.

Create a layer orangeheader“. Next, create a selection. 900 by 450 pixels and fill it with an orange gradient.

Step 2

Leaving the selection active, create a layer headerclouds“. We press FilterRenderClouds(Filters – Rendering – Clouds). Next, set the blending mode to ColorDodge (Lighten the basics) and set the opacity to ten%.

Step 3

Now open this beautiful texture. Place one of the textures over the selection of the header and name the layer headertexture“.

Set the blending mode to Overlay (Overlap) and set the opacity to 20%.

Step 4

Then, using a radial gradient from white to transparent, we create such a spot on the right.

Set the blending mode to ColorDodge (Lighten the basics) and set the opacity value to ten%.

Step 5

Create a layer “Lighting 1”. Via lasso (Lasso) select the triangle, as shown below, and fill it with a gradient from white to transparent.

Next, set the blending mode to ColorDodge (Lighten the basics) and set the opacity to ten%.

Step 6

Repeat the previous step several times until we get something like this:

Step 7

Create a new layer menu“. Create a height selection. 60 pixels full width at the top of the template. Fill it with black and lower the opacity to 40%.

Next, apply the following styles to the layer: Drop shadow (Shadow).

Step 8

Add text as well as separators between menu items.

Step 9

Open the MacBook image. Place the MacBook image on the right side.

Apply the following styles to the layer: Drop shadow (Shadow), Outer glow (External glow), Color overlay (Overlay color).

Step 10

Create a layer macbookshadow“. Create an oval selection under the Mac Book’s and fill the selection with black. Applicable to oval FilterBlurGaussianBlur (Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur). This should give the feeling that the Mac Book is casting a shadow.

Step 11

Add header text, I used the font. Museo.

Apply the following styles for the layer with the title: Drop shadow (Shadow), Inner shadow (Inner shadow), Outer glow (External glow, GradientOverlay (Gradient overlay).

Step 12

Add the subtitle text, this time I used Arial. Choose the color the same as on the background of the cap, only darker.

Drop shadow (Shadow), Inner shadow (Inner shadow).

Step 13
Now let’s work on the form. Create a rounded rectangle for the input field. Apply styles: Drop shadow (Shadow), Inner shadow (Inner shadow), GradientOverlay (Gradient overlay).

Step 14

Add another button to the right of the first. This time, apply other styles:

Drop shadow (Shadow), Inner shadow (Inner shadow), GradientOverlay (Gradient overlay).

Step 15

Get such a nice form.

Step 16

Add text.

Step 17

Add content to the main container under the header. I did this:

Step 18

Create a new layer footer“. Create a selection at the very bottom of the template, shown below, and fill the selection with light gray.

Step 19

On the new layer create a round selection so that it is exactly half went to the footer. Fill the selection with the same color as the footer, merge them into one layer and apply the following gradient in the styles of the newly created layer.

Step 20

The final touch – add text to the footer, not forgetting the shadows.

And … Done!

I really hope that this lesson helped you and taught you at least something. Thanks for attention!
