  • How do I get this effect?

    Hi there,

    First time post.

    I really like the effect on the striped header of this website. Does anybody know the best way to mimic it?

    There's a couple different ways. One is to just make the stripes as needed - tedius and takes a long time. The other is to make an abstract with a bunch of brushes - dots, squiggles, what have you - or a high contract photo. Then select one pixel by whatever width and crop. Now create a new image the size you want and fill with the "one pixel by" - there ya go - stripes.

    What program do you use? And I'd be able to give more specific instructions if need be.

      Hi, Cheers for replying.

      In terms of software, I'm using Fireworks, Illustrator and Photoshop.

          Okies, a quick Photoshop tutorial for the stripes is now on my site.

          I learned this one awhile ago from some other obscure site, that seems to have lost itself in obscurity.

          I haven't used Fireworks, and only used Illy to create a few book covers, so not much help there.

                or you could use the offset filter in photoshop and set to 'repeat edge pixels' then just crop it.

                  Here is one method you could try.

                  Use a gradient in photoshop

                  Select a gradient, go to gradient editor,

                  Gradient type: Noise

                  Roughness 100%

                  check the add tranparency option

                  Move the color sliders and hit randomize a few times till gou get something you want.

                  Then drag the gradient accross the field

                    That desired effect just screams Illustrator to me. The blend tool set to "Specified Steps" would serve you well here...

                      Looks like a gradient to me.
                      You can muck around with the blend tool all day. It is the wrong tool for the job....

                      The fonts are different. Were you able to get the same typeface that was used on the originals? I think it would make them look even more consistent, like they were designed at the same time, if you can...
