Create a New Year Fireworks Party Flyer in Photoshop

Tutorials Photo Manipulation 24722 Views December 19th, 2013

Today we'll learn how to create a party flyer for the new year in Photoshop using some beautiful gold layer styles and fireworks light effects. You can use this tutorial to create Happy New Year greeting cards, party flyers, calendars and so on. I really hope you will enjoy the 2014 Fireworks Party Flyer and that you will decide to give it a try.

Advertisment

Let's start with a simple black background layer. In a new layer add this city night stock image. Call this layer City Night. Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur and set the radius to around 2px.

Add a layer mask to the City Night layer and use the Gradient Tool to mask/hide the top area of the image. Use a black and white gradient.

Now I will add a Gradient Fill adjustment layer using a linear gradient made from these two colors: #ffc600 and #b13ae3 ; set the blend mode of the gradient map to Color, 100% opacity level.

In a new layer add a text using a font that you like. I used Ethon Free Font that you can download and use in Photoshop. Learn how you can install font in Photoshop from this quick tutorial.

I will use this clock PNG image to replace the zero from the "2014" text.

Use one of these gold Photoshop style for the text layer and the clock. You might have to scale the effects to look good; for that you have to go to Layer>Layer Style and choose Scale Effects. I have also added a "Happy New Year" text using the same golden style. You can download the gold styles that I have used for each layer from here

You can add a beautiful detail by using these line divider vector shape ; use a golden style also for this layer.

If you download the PSD file the text has already the layer style set.
If you want to use one of the other gold styles, you have to download the ASL file and load it in Photoshop:
1. go to Edit>Preset Manager and choose Stles from the list; click load to load the ASL file
2. type your text and open the layer style window; select styles and simply choose one of the gold styles that you loaded in the first step. reply

I am glad that you want to start learning Photoshop again! Your result looks great but as you probably noticed the fireworks look better on a night photography.
If you want to use fireworks on a day time photo you have to add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment for the fireworks image and to reduce the brightness to -30 and increase the contrast to 100 .
Also you might add a Hue/Saturation adjustment and increase the saturation level. reply

I've just found this beautiful Animated Sparkle Fireworks inspired by this tutorial on my Google Plus account and decided to share it with you.
It is such a great idea to animate the fireworks adding sparkle and glitter effects in Photoshop, so I am pretty sure I will make a tutorial out of it! reply

How, this was incredibly in-depth for a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a New Year's flyer. I love using photoshop, but I tend to prefer web-based apps. Did you have any recommendations for web-based apps? So far I've used Lucidpress to teach me how to make a flyer. It's pretty simple and easy to use. reply
John

Hi Mike,
I am not familiar with Lucidpress. I only use Photoshop for my photo manipulations, but I am sure there are plenty of web-based apps. Unfortunately I didn't try any of them, just yet :) reply

Hello,

I just found this tutorial.

I have been using Photoshop for a few years and know how to use all the tools, effects, etc...

I'm posting here because, as I was following your tutorial, I noticed that my gradient colors, effects, etc.. were not looking like the ones in your tutorial.

I am attaching a print screen. I followed your tutorial up to step 3, so far, and my colors are not looking like yours.

I'm just curious if you can see if I did anything wrong like maybe my document size is wrong (I used the "default photoshop size" setting in the new document window) or if the settings on my gradient layer mask are off or something?

I used the "Black, White" gradient for my layer mask and used the same settings (colors, etc...) for the gradient fill layer. reply

If you used the same color tones for the Gradient Fill and the blend mode and opacity, the only reason for the differences is the size of you PSD document.
You can try to Scale the gradient or drag and drop on the screen to move it.
Another method that you can try is to modify the "Location" field of the gradient colors. reply
