Photoshop Shapes

Bird on a red star

Bird on a red star. Done with Photoshop by Ulla Hennig

This is a very simple example of what you can do with Photoshop shapes. Bird shape and star shape are a part of my Photoshop shapes. In addition to your “normal” shapes you can find a lot of selections of free Photoshop shapes on the web–in one of my next posts I will list a few locations where you can get them.

Working with layers is important here, too, especially if you want to move your shapes around, or if you want to change the size  by clicking on EDIT and then on TRANSFORM->Scale (I’ve got Photoshop in a German version, so I hope you can guess what I am talking about). I created one layer for the background, one for the bird, and one for the star, and I played around with some layer styles.

Actually it took me longer to upload the image file to flickr and to write this blog post than to create the image itself… Try it for yourself and have fun!

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.

    Dear Ulla,
    …oh, I admire your photoshop skills. Awesome. I still cannot get how to put layers and cannot make watermarks. I use another program to put watermarks. If you were a next door, I wish I could ask you to teach me… sigh. But anyway, your work looks good!
    Kind regards, Sadami
