Creating clouds in Photoshop seems to be quite popular these days, so in this tutorial I am going to be teaching you how to create a cloud logo for your site.
Firstly, we are going to be creating a new document. The dimensions I have used are 600 pixels wide and 420 pixels high. Fill in the background with a subtle radial gradient from #4d99ca to #2c7bb4.
On a new layer use the ellipticial marquee tool to form a cloud shape. To add to a selection, hold down the shift key while selecting with a marquee tool.
Fill your cloud selection with white. To fill a selection simply go Edit > Fill with the colour #ffffff. Line the cloud up in the center of the document if you want, but we’ll be duplicating it and such later on anyway.
Now we are going to be adding some layer styles to our cloud. To adjust layer styles right click the layer and select blending options.
Duplicate the cloud layer (Ctrl + J) and reduce the size of it (in proportion – so hold down the shift key). To transform the size of an object just go Edit > Transform > Scale or Ctrl + T. Move the clouds around until you have them in a position that you like the look of. Ensure that you have some space to stick the text to come though.
Select the text tool and write the name of your site there. I’ve used one of the Vista fonts ‘Cambria’. I’ve also given the text a dark outer glow effect too.
