Radio Show Poster

wanted posterI chose a most wanted poster with a mirror in the place the picture usually is placed. Not only do I not want to spoil the plot, I mainly did it so you see yourself, implying that you’d be next. I used pixlr, and got a most wanted poster template off of Google, and then messed around with the photoshop to create a mirror surface. To do that, you use a gradient tool and get the colors, use white and grey white. Then you take the brush tool and enlarge it, bring down it’s opacity to about 14, make sure it’s set to blurred edges, and go click my click to make a reflection. I then opened up my frame and unlocked the background and then used the wand tool to select the center of the frame and then the surrounding background. After selecting I used the erase tool and the wand tool allowed me to erase everything except for the frame. I then cut and pasted and custom fit the frame to the existing square. Then wa-la!

  1. This poster is very intriguing and definitely makes me want to tune into your show. Implying that the viewer of the poster is next is attention-grabbing! The detail you gave about how to achieve the mirror look in Photoshop is very helpful! Although I have not created a mirror surface, it helped me to fabricate other effects in my work.

  2. Thanks for sharing how you created the mirror — that’s a neat technique.

    I’d love to see this image a bit larger. Do you have a larger version of it?

  3. I love that you told us how to edit it because it gives help to those a little challenged with editing and the world of being creative. I like the poster and it really makes me wonder as to what your show will be about because now there is so many ideas and thoughts going through my head!
