Custom script and photo with instagram filter can be fun and very easy to create, in this quick tutorial I will show you how to create your own script and add any photo as a background and add a simple instagram effect.
Create a document with any size you wants, for this tutorial I’ll use 1280 x800, DPI 300, color mode RGB. With ellipse tool draw a circle double click on the ellipse shape layer and fill it with light gray.
Use the line tool to create guides, to define spacing between rows rotate them a little bit.
Ok now is time to create the brush to write out our script. create a new brush and use the following settings.
Now is time to start drawing the letter.
Now reduce the opacity for the writing you just created to 30%.
Now we’ll use the pen tool in path mode to trace the letters using the original lines as a guide. remember to trace the small letters in different path layer.
Now this is the fun part, pick up the brush tool and press return. what this do is stroke the path with the brush we made. and & to words use small brush. ok we done with the writing for now hide the visibility of the writing layer.
Open your image in PhotoShop copy and then paste to our original file and name it background use filters, Blur, Gaussian Blur and set it up radius to 5.0 . for this tutorial I’ve used an image from Forrest Cavale you can download more photos from here: https://unsplash.com/
on top of the background create a new layer and set foreground with #bf72f5 and background with #66ccff now fill the layer with the gradient tool and set the blending mode to overlay.
Ok now turn on the visibility of the writing layer and set the blending mode to overlay
