Making banners

Recommended Posts

I feel like a complete and total noob by asking a question like this. I've read tutorials and looked through the G.D. board, but I still can't figure this out.

My problem is that I want to create nifty little banners, like this:

But I can't figure out how.

I think I've read through four different tutorials and other boards pertaining to the subject, but I don't understand any of it.

Would someone be able to explain it to me in as simple of a way as possible? It would be greatly appreciated and I would bow down to you for half of forever.

LITTLE? That's HUGE for a banner!

As for the effect, you gotta search for a pattern, apply it with the Photo Flood Fill plugin on a new layer and try different blend modes.

What I do, even though I'm a newbie as well, is put two images side by side of however you want them in two separate layers. select which you want to blend and click the gradient tool. then change the mode to transparency and blend away. Sorry I couldn't post a more full explanation. I'll try to find a link to the thread in which I learned how to do it.

EDIT_ Look, I found it. Click the link below. I was asking the same question and someone posted a very good lesson on how to blend images together. Here you go:
