How to Create a Promotional Poster for an Event in Photoshop Tutorial

In this Photoshop Tutorial, I will be using Photoshop CC to demonstrate how to create a simple promotional poster theme for an event or message.

To begin, select your poster size, and use a photo that is relevant to your message. You can look up common poster sizes on google if you are looking to get this actually printed, however we will just pretend we are going to be sharing this on social media only. With the photo placed onto our canvas, we will then apply a gradient map to create a two tone color backdrop out of the photograph. We can then begin adding our text in a justified and aligned text box using the paragraph panel. Add any further details, logos, or decorations as preferred for a simple final result! Remember this is just a base and idea, and you can transform it and add your own spin on it to create your personalized poster or promo image.
