40 Cool Background Photoshop Tutorials

Cool background designs are integral in any type of design. However, when choosing the best background, it can be very difficult to design or find one. In fact, you need to have a thorough understanding of the requirements of your client as well as a lot of inspiration to increase the “feel” of your background design. That said, designing a cool background that will perfectly match the theme of the site becomes even more essential.

Perhaps you may not have noticed the great role that a cool background plays in a design. Some graphic creations for example may use light and restrained background in creating a focal point. If the content that can be incorporated into the design is quite limited, a discreet background could be used to prevent the overall conception from looking empty.

When making a cool background design, you can have limitless potentials through Photoshop. You can create textures and abstracts from scratch by using the features incorporated with Photoshop or you can make one from photographs.

In this post then, I have collected 40 cool background tutorials for Photoshop that you can bookmark for future reference, or use as guide for your own project. Check out each of these great Photoshop tutorials and try using them for some amazing effects in your background.
