Create a rainbow in Photoshop

Or Rainbow of the Night Sky! I have no idea why I created my rainbow against a night sky, but I did. Maybe it’s because there should be night time rainbows. How beautiful that would be!

Rainbows are the tears of joy from heaven. Obviously, in Ireland, we believe there’s a crock of gold at the end of them as well.

I’ve never found a pot of gold but I always make a wish when I see one, and who knows, maybe one day I will! Anyhow, who doesn’t like a rainbow?!  Today I have been looking at Polar Co-ordinates in Photoshop (not mathematics)! They take verticals and curve them in a single command. So easy! So using a rainbow gradient and the Polar Co-ordinates I made a rainbow of my own.  I added a sparkle brush because it kind of looked pretty and the brush can be kept forever in the brush presets to be used whenever a dusting of sparkly spangles is called for.

I’ve written up the tutorial for you. It takes much longer to explain and write up than it does to create them.

Create a Photo Montage in Photoshop

Still playing around in Photoshop. It’s just amazing how much it can do. No matter how much I learn about it I always feel like I’m still scratching the surface.

I’ve just made a photo montage and it was really easy.  Here’s my end result – if you look closely you’ll see the montage – it’s made up a tiny square pictures of my cat – behind the main image. The resolution isn’t brilliant to keep the size down for posting but when you do your own you’d obviously keep the res up to around 200 – 300 dpi. You could have your child’s face with a background montage of family members, family pets, etc. Anyway, have some fun making a unique scrapbook page for yourself.
