Design a Stunning French Perfume Advert Poster

Time to play a bit with shapes. Use any twirly shape you wish, we used free ones (sorry they are so old that I have no idea anymore where did they come from). Once selected, and using the white color as foreground, apply them in all 4 sides of the photo…

…so that you will have a nice Victoria style frame all around.

Don’t worry if it doesn’t look too smooth — it’s not supposed to be! Just give it a funky-glamorous look, the way you see on most French adverts, commercials and packs.

Step 6

Now take the flower (link is at the beginning of the tutorial), and crop the flower so that you will be able to easily extract it from the background and apply without having any pixelated sides. Since cropping is a pretty much basic Photoshop technique we will not demonstrate here how to crop, hopping you will read about it in one of our basic tutorials.

Step 7

Once cropped properly, apply the layer with flowers unto the composition you are creating. The idea is that one of the petals is located IN the lady’s month; now before you go ahead and assume this is something rude — we will have a point for this one later on, just be patient and continue reading.

Step 8

Select the flowers layer, and using the Burn Tool in your Photoshop, go over the flowering adding a little accent and depth — on the sides, edges and inside the flower. The burn tool will darken the areas you are working with, just be sure to use a Soft Brush of at least 100px and do not overdo this effect. This is something hardly visible and unseen, yet it adds depth and makes our image less shallow.

Step 9

Now, in our attempt to make the flowers layer organically blended and less shallow, we are going to add a shadow. Select the flowers layer by pressing Ctrl and selecting the layer from layers panel. Create a new layer  and place it underneath the flowers layer. Fill the selection with black color.

Step 10

Press Ctrl + T to transform the selection of the shadow layer, and after right-click — use the “Skew” mode. Pull the edges of the bottom selection a little bit towards the sides but be careful not to overdo this effect — most Photoshop beginners tend to think that when following a tutorial — the more is the better, that is not quite always right.

    Thanks for giving your ideas. I’d also like to convey that video games have been actually evolving. Modern tools and improvements have made it easier to create reasonable and fun games. All these entertainment video games were not as sensible when the actual concept was first being experimented with. Just like other styles of technologies, video games too have had to evolve by way of many generations. This itself is testimony to the fast development of video games.

  18. Nice theme and very easier to learn. This is a new idea in my Graphics part. I think you will success again for this tutorial. thanks for sharing this.
