Add a Fresh Splash to your Design

In this tutorial, I’ll show you several techniques for enhancing a basic banner design for a product or service. These techniques can be employed to add a fresh splash to many of your designs!

The Finished Ad

Before we begin, lets take a look at what the finished result looks like.

Final

Images We’re Using

Before we can create the ad, we need to have the images for it. I’ve decided to use the following:

Or you can download them here.

Step 1 – Creating the Background

Create a new document, mine is 500x647px. Grab your Gradient Tool and set it to Radial Gradient. I feel like making a green inspired ad, so I’m going to use #ceed12 as my foreground color and #186600 as my background color. Create a gradient near the lower left corner of the document.

Gradient Done

Create a new layer, and grab the Reflected Gradient Tool. Set the blending mode to Difference and create an effect like the one shown below by creating multiple gradients on the same layer. (Use black and white as the foreground and background colors)

Reflected Gradient Options

Reflected Gradient

Once this is done, set the blending mode of the reflected gradient layer to Soft Light and lower the opacity till you get an effect that you like.

Soft Light Effect

Step 2 – Working on the Bottle

Now that the background is complete, lets bring the bottle into the ad and re-size it.

Bottle In

Use the Magic Wand Tool to select the white area and delete it. Then reposition it in the bottom left corner and rotate it so that the cap points to the upper right.

Bottle No White

I want to change the color of the bottle to green so that it matches with the rest of the ad. To do this, create a new layer, then Ctrl+Click on the thumbnail of the layer containing your bottle. Select a nice green color, and fill the selection of the bottle on your new layer with it. Then change the blending mode of the layer to Hue.

Green Bottle

With the bottle still selected, create another new layer, and use a soft black brush and run it along the sides of the bottle. Then set the blending mode of the layer to Soft Light.

Black Sides

Black Sides Soft Light

Step 3 – Adding Leaves and Splash

Bring the leaves into the ad the same way you brought the bottle in, and then place them in front of and behind the bottle. You can use them multiple times and rotate them to get better effects.

Bottle Leaves

Open the splash image. The only part of this image we want is the splash that is in the bottom right corner. To select this, we are going to select Color Ranges. Go to Select > Color Range. Use the Add to Sample Eyedropper and select different areas of the splash.

Color Range

Click OK to select the areas that are in white. Remove the clouds from the selection by using a selection tool and holding alt.

Selection

Copy the splash and paste it onto a new layer in your ad. Re-size it and place it in the lower left corner on top of the bottle and the leaves. Then go to Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen to sharpen the splash. You may want to sharpen it a few times, but don’t overdue it. I also decided to grab a large soft eraser and partially erase the outer edge of the splash to soften it some.

Bottle Splash

Step 4 – Adding the Rings and Strokes

Adding the rings around the bottle is quite simple. Select a 3px brush. Then, grab the Ellipse Tool found under the Rectangle Tool. Using the Paths option, create a wide oval a little larger than the width of the bottle.

Ellipse Tool Options

Oval Path

Right click, and choose Stroke Path. Then select the Brush from the drop down menu and make sure Stimulate Pressure IS checked. Press Esc to delete the path. Then apply the following Layer Styles (Right Click Layer > Blending Options):

Outer Glow

Outer Glow

Color Overlay

Color Overlay

All that’s left is to rotate the ring until its at a nice angle. To create more, simply duplicate the layer (Right Click > Duplicate Layer) and re-size them if needed.

Rings

To create the other strokes, use the Pen Tool, and apply the same layer styles shown above. Remember to place some layers behind the bottle and change opacity to create more effects.

Layer Styles

Right click a layer and copy its layer style to quickly paste the same layer styles onto a different layer.

To create the circles along the path, simply increase the spacing on your brush tool before you stroke the path.

Circle Brush
Bottle Strokes

Step 5 – Adding Some Fun to the Ad

Create a new layer below your bottle. Then grab a 19px hard brush and change the settings to the following:

Brush Tip Shape

Brush Tip Shape

Shape Dynamics

Shape Dynamics

Scattering

Scattering

Color Dynamics

Color Dynamics

Then start brushing onto your new layer. Try to keep bigger circles next to the bottle and smaller ones as they move further away. Set the blending mode of the layer to Overlay when you are finished.

Large Circles

Do the same thing on a new layer with a smaller brush and lower the opacity of the layer.

Small Circles

I’m also going to add another splash layer that will lie between the circle layers. After I have my splash in place, I’m going to Ctrl+Click on the large circle layer, and delete this selection from my new splash layer. This way, the splash won’t appear under the circles, since the circle layers are set to Overlay.

Second Splash

Step 6 – Finishing Up

Since my bottle doesn’t have any labels, I’m going to add my own. I’m also going to place the logo of my drink in the bottom right corner and add some small circles around it.

Final

And of course, here’s a PSD you can grab for free with the tutorial contents!

    I got lost when you say to change the color of the bottle with a green color I choose…how do I do that? because when I choose fill then color it doesn’t work. If I go to Solid Color it allows me to get a color but the result is something different. How do I get the results you get with the gradient tones in the inside of the bottle? Please let me know.

    I’m not sure about the escape method, but I did get rid of it by making it a selection, then unselcting it ;)

    Great tutorial by the way!

    @vacarsu
    If you are talking about getting rid of the path for the ellipse tool, select your ellipse tool (or another shape tool) and press escape until it disappears.

    Thanks again for all the positive feedback and input everyone.

    How do I get rid of the oval shapes after I stroke the path, because when I press ctrl + T it aonly selects the shape, on all layers. So I need to get rid of it…

    very very nice tutorial here!

    just a minor thing…the liquid surface inside the bottle should be horizontal and not perfectly inclined :)

    Very good; however, there is one thing that needs to be changed, the liquid inside the bottle should be purpendicular to the bottom of you canvas since you bottle is at an angle. Other than that fantastic job!!

    Congratulations Tyler on your tutorial!

    This is truly an ironic situation, as I haven’t even seen your tutorial yet, and since mine has been in the making for a while now. Indeed, the subject of the ad is a common one, but there is enough of a difference between the two in order to make them distinct. Thank you for understanding, and keep up your good work!

    Once again, its great to hear appreciation from the community! David has put a lot of hard work into this site and I hope that it continues to grow and expand.

    @PSDTUTS Post
    The final outcome and techniques used in the tutorial are quite different than the ones that I used. Also, it would have been hard for them to write it and get it improved in such short time. Drink advertisements are really popular these days!

    @Tom Ross
    I try to keep things simple yet stunning, while at the same time, I try to explain why and how you do things, instead of just telling you to do them. I’m glad that you like my work!

    Hey David, Tyler and the rest of the Tutorial9 crew, I really appreciate the effort you guys have taken and put into this. It’s definitely a treat to come in and look like a pro even though I am a developer, not a designer.

    You guys rock. Best of luck, and I will be trolling here often. :)

    @ Tom Ross – haha, guess drinks are on the minds of several tutorial authors out there right now :P That’s a pretty slick effect they published over there.

    @ Tyler Bramer – Wonderful job on this one. Love the video you were able to include, and splashes are AWESOME! They remind me of some of the designs a restaurant called Chili’s uses around here.

    Wow!
    That one is outstanding. At first I thought this would just be another “one-read-tutorial” without learning-effect. But then I was surprised because you are using nearly all of the important features in Photoshop and you explain them.

    I can’t use them in my work now, but I’m certainly going to get back to this tutorial.

    Thanks a lot,
