As you can see i am in photoshop and we'll see how to design letterhead.
So first off let me close all these things and show you from the start.
So for the letterhead , I have a text and a letterhead pattern , which was already designed.
I am using the templates which we made before.
I am using those to make you show.
So first of all I have this design. and i opened this.
And you can see in the design that I haven't done really much.
I have simply made a square and have given a curve type look to it.
And here I have given for address and phone number and for website link , nothing else here.
Now , I am opening the second , wait a second.
I will add text in the second one.
So this will become our text. So firstly , let us take this down.
So that we get what we need.
So what have I done? I had the text in jpg so I selected the text and linear burned it.
So it turned transparent.
And now we can use it.
So , by this way , you can use your old text.
And here you can add your details.
So here I have written everything as an example.
Because we have made these templates.
So what will I do ? If you have to remove this , I will show you a technique.
This way we'll select it and press Shift+F5 and you will get an option of content overfill.
And the same option you will get in edit in fill.
so whenever you click , it will be done.
Firstly we have to convert it from smart to a normal layer.
Now it is converted to the normal layer.
Then this will be removed.
Like if you want to remove this , Shift+F5+delete.
same we'll do with this also. Shift+Alt5+delete.
Same we'll do with this also. Alt5+shift+delete.
Same thing for this also, Shift+alt5 + delete.
Shift F5 ok delete.
Here you can do one more thing , you can use a pattern or a design , to write something like an address or phone number. You can fill in that.
Copy the same thing in the downward section.
And here also , you must copy.
Here you can add a drop shadow , like I'll double click here. Firstly , I will have to select this. It's selected , select that from there , you can change the color , according to you.
I'll give it a paperloop to it. So it's done.
We'll double click on this.
So we'll get an option of drop shadow from there.
So it's done our drop shadow.
By clicking here , we can give as much shadow as we want , and what kind of shadow we want.
Let's make it 90.
it's done. we have got that fill.
If you want to increase the size ,you can also increase the size.
So you'll get more fill.
So now , what do we do?
Let's delete this , and also del0ete this.
We'll select it again.
we'll close it and also we'll close that.
and from the below , we'll use the drop shadow and press ok.
So it will be set perfectly.
The above seen drop shadow is preset by me.
That's why it was creating a mess.
So here you can add phone numbers and stuff.
You can see how attractive it looks.
but as it is a letter pad , we shouldn't do this because it will not look good , reason being : letter pad is always simple. it doesn't contain design.
One more thing you can do is put your logo in big size between the paper. By decreasing the opacity.
For example , let me tell you.
This is our company's name.
I will rotate it a bit. And I'll make it large.
This will come inside the paper.
We must decrease the opacity of this to the lowest.
So we'll get something like this to see. Like this.
so , we can decrease the opacity as much as we want so that the letters on the letterhead are readable.
Here you can add one more design.
From here , like this , you can add design and we'll fill color in that.
Whatever color you like.
So like this you have to design your letterhead.
Lets disable the auto select, so that we get what we've selected.
So now let's save it and our letterhead design is ready.
There's no big deal in this.
This text you can also write and you know , you have basic knowledge of Photoshop.
So you can write where to use which text and all.
so that all you know so the template i have shown is taken from the ready designs.
So , I don't have to show you much , and not to type much.
So you too make a letterhead and you have to use it as a template only.
Like , If you're making a visiting card , make a template of it.
If you're making a banner, make a template of it too.
so from that you don't have to make new designs , you just have to change color , patterns or the design.
But the size will be the same , because the size of the letterhead is the same.
So , let's finish our topic here.
I hope you get to know how to design a letterhead , so let's move on to our next topic now.
If you have any queries or comments, click the discussion button below the video and post there. This way, you will be able to connect to fellow learners and discuss the course. Also, Our Team will try to solve your query.
Create a New Document.
From Photoshop's Tools Palette, choose the Type Tool.
From the Options Bar, select a font.
Pick a color for your text.
Fill In The Blanks With Your Text.
If necessary, resize the type.
Make a shape out of the text.
To change an individual letter, select it and press Command + T (Mac) or Control + T (PC). To rotate the transform box, hover over any corner and click and drag. To commit to the changes, press Enter. You can keep rotating individual letters by repeating this method as many times as you want!
Convert text to a shape by right-clicking on the text layer and selecting "Convert To Shape." Then, by pressing Shift A, pick the Direct Selection tool (the white arrow tool) and click-and-drag the points in the path to reshape the characters.
A Type layer is automatically created in the Layers panel when you add text to the canvas. Individual Type layers allow you to make type changes without affecting the rest of the design. Because Photoshop's type is built up of vector-based outlines, it remains smooth and crisp even when scaled up and edited.
