How to Create Title Screens for Video in Photoshop

In today's episode, we show you how to create title screens for video in photoshop. Not only that, we'll also show you how to create a layer mask that animates throughout time. To finish everything off, we'll show you how to animate layer effects in video. This is the final installment on our series of episodes teaching you how to edit video in photoshop.

Section 1: Adding a Title Screen and Layer Mask

Title screens are a great way to brand your video. In our example, we use our Phlearn Logo for our title. If you've been following along with our series, all of this should feel familiar. We start by creating a new video group. We then grab the file we want for our title, in this case it's our Phlearn logo, and we drag that into the new video group. We then transform our logo to the exact size we want it to be. In our timeline, our title is on top of all our footage. So we see the logo on top of our whole video. In order to add a bit more interest to our title, we add a layer mask to our title. We use keyframes on our layer mask to animate what's visible with our logo at a specific time.

Section 1: Using Layer Effects Animations

Now that we have our layer mask, we show you how animate a layer effect throughout time. We choose a drop shadow for our layer effect. Then we play with the blending modes, opacity, and distance. Now that we have our layer effect visible, we keyframe the movements of our drop shadow. We change the angle of the drop shadow from one side to the other. Because it's keyframed, we see the drop shadow move as time goes on. This is just a basic example of how you could animate layer effects for video in photoshop.

We end things off by reviewing our final video, then we show you guys some settings so you can export your video and get it up on the web!

Facebook Advertising Coupon – What Happened?

It used to be that Facebook had many different promotions in which they gave out free $50 advertising coupons. Facebook Advertising Coupon is only getting from some hosting service that is include in godaddy Hostgator and 1and1, If you do a search for “Free Facebook Coupons” on Google you’ll probably see some results like this: Free coupon when you buy WordPress hosting through GoDaddy Free coupon when you setup a DIY website through specific website builders Free coupon when you “like” Facebook’s Marketing page Unfortunately none of these are still active. What happened is in mid-2015 Facebook tightened their hold on advertising credit coupons, likely in response to companies who were “reselling” coupons on eBay and Fiverr.

Contextual Design and Development is the Driving Force Behind all Successful Mobile Applications

The time of ordinary custom web application design & development is long gone. Today the focus is on contextual design and development. It is the rise in the popularity of mobile applications that has provided the impetus for giving importance to ‘context’ when it comes to app or web development. Let’s focus our attention on mobile applications and why mobile applications need to be developed keeping the context in mind. Because they are used in diverse locations Let’s face it. We all love mobile apps because they can be used just about anywhere and at any given point of time.

Different users have different needs when it comes to a mobile app and these needs, in part, are determined by their location.
