black, yellow, red circle

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Skybuck Flying, Nov 8, 2003.

  1. Hi..

    I want to draw this in photoshop:

    A big red filled circle in the middle of an A4 paper size.

    A black filled outer ring 0.5 centimeters and a black filled inner ring 0.5

    So the most outer ring is black, then the next ring is yellow and the inner
    filling is red.

    This all centered inside A4.

    An extra something would be to let the black gradient to yellow and maybe
    yellow to red.

    What would be the best/easiest way to do that ?

    First I would make a new layer. Then I would go to View>New guide>horizontal
    and type in 50%. Then New guide vertical 50%. This will give you a center
    point. Choose the Oval marquee tool, hold down the Alt and Ctrl keys and
    drag from the center of the image out to the size of circle you want. Make
    sure the new layer is selected and fill the selection with black. Go to
    Select>Transform selection>type in about 84% in Width and 84% in Height to
    reduce the selection by about 0.5cm. You will have to play with these
    numbers to get what you want. Make new layer. Fill selection with yellow. Go
    to Transform selection again and reduce by the same amount you used above.
    Make a new layer and fill with red. Now Choose the black layer and the
    circular gradient and play with the gradients until you get to the image you
    want. This last part will require that you just play around with the
    gradient but playing around with PS is fun if you don't have a deadline
    ahead of you.

  5. Euhm what's a guide ?

    It says 0 in... so I just replace it with 50... nothing happens ?

    Ah yes.. cool is see what the problem was...

    Not 50... but 50% <- procent sign :D

    Then New guide vertical 50%. This will give you a center
    Super cool... this will make two blue lines... one vertical and one
    horizontal :D

    I also locked them so they dont move :D
    Ok this is called the elipse tool

    Ok... so first I press on the blue cross and then I hold down the shift and
    alt keys...
    that makes the circle center and makes it a real circle...
    so I dont press the control key.
    Cool I choose load selection

    and then rescale it... so it makes a new circle...

    Excellent :D
    Ok... Cool I get it :D

    Thx dude :D

    Use the right tool for the job. The best and easiest way to drive nails is with
    a hammer, not a screwdriver.

    Use Illustrator, not Photoshop.
