About This Class

Digital, metallic foil has become increasingly popular and this class will reveal the mystery of how digital metallic magic is really created!

We’ll create impressive, made-from-scratch digital metallic foil textures and apply them to social media posts to get noticed quickly. We’ll walk through every step of the realistic foil making process using only Photoshop, creating seamless, fully repeatable textured patterns using some specific techniques. You’ll also learn how easy it is to change the color of your foil: from gold to silver, to black, red, blue.. to whatever you’d like! We’ll finish the class by applying our new textures to social media post designs for quick publishing. Every student who enrolls in the class will receive a social media sizes cheat sheet for quick post creations, a resources pdf with links to everything mentioned in the class and a bonus glitter file!

Basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is required.

This was an amazing class. I learned everything I needed to know and more. I strongly encourage everyone who is interested to take this class. You won't regret it.
This was great. I don't have Photoshop, so I wasn't able to easily replicate the foil effect in the GIMP, but I learned great tips for how to make a pattern tile seamlessly and how to colorize layers. Highly recommend!
Superb class - excellent teacher - I got a bit lost in parts due to my PhotoShop being set up slightly differently, but went over it afterwards with some help, and it all makes sense now. Feel like the world is my oyster when it comes to designing from scratch! Also good to be shown the proper techniques for saving and editing your work instead of my usual "winging it" techniques.
