Converting Images into Shapes for Blog Graphics (Using Photoshop)
This tutorial is a response to many questions I get about how I “create those cool shapes” that I use on my blog. In a previous post I shared my Free Downloadable Photoshop Shape Images, one of which, I will be using during this tutorial.
Readers appreciate blogs being graphically interesting. It makes them stop and think, “Hey, That’s really cool!” In this example, I am using my most asked about, and personal favorite graphic shape. I call it the “swirly, curvy thingy” But it’s really called a Quatrefoil. I just love how classy it looks! Anyways, here’s the tutorial on how to use the “swirly, curvy thingy” to create beautiful stunning graphics!
One tip: When you save it, save it as a PNG and click “Interlaced.” That way the image background will remain transparent without having to save it as a Photoshop file. If it’s placed on top of something with a color other than white (like in the first picture on this post) it will show through and look “cut out”
