Hi! Just wondering how I would add a color effect like the one attached. Thanks for your help! Chris

I thnk you mean the color overlay on the left side of the image. This can be done relatively easy.

1) Before you overlay the layers with text, first prepare the color effect layer, by adding a new layer on top of the background layer (the image with the drummer)

2) There are lots of ways to do the nex thing but the easiest for now is to just fill that new layer (edit menu > fill) with the color you want.

3) Decrease the opacity of the layer by moving the opacity slider at the bottom of the layers palette.

4) Use the move tool to move the whole layer to the left side.

5) Finish things off by adding the text layers.


I hope that helps you out!

Hi Chris,

Another technique you can use is gradient masks to achieve this effect on the image; however you would still need to add all the text elements separately.

We have a tutorial on gradients masks due to be published in the next few weeks - so keep an eye out if you are interested. We'll make sure to post the link here once it is done.

Cheers,
