How to Make a Call of Duty Title Screen in Photoshop

Video Game lovers, rejoice! In today's episode, learn How to Make a Call of Duty Title Screen in Photoshop, and take away some versatile font techniques too!

Preparing the background-

Begin by dragging your texture onto the image of the subject. You can group the layers and turn them off for now. Crop the image to your liking, and be sure that 'Delete Cropped Pixels' is unchecked!

If you find that you need to add a solid color layer beneath your image, like we did in this episode because of the cropping, we suggest creating a Color Fill Adjustment Layer. This will interact with the crop tool so that there is always color on the background.

Rough and Rugged-

For this image we simply downloaded a free Call of Duty font from dafont.com.

The character panel is where you will find all of your text options for things like color, tracking, and point size (if you don't see this, go to Window - Character). There are also tools at the top bar of Photoshop that will help with aligning more than 1 line of text together.

To get the rough and rugged texture we added previously to show up on just the font, right click on the texture layer and select “create clipping mask.” This will make the texture show up ONLY where those letters are, so you don’t have to worry about masking or anything.

For some added detail, go to Filter - Filter Gallery - Spatter. Play with this filter to increase the grunginess of the texture, and customize the edges of the font (be sure to be doing so on a stamp visible layer).

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. Yes, that’s right, they can be used in offices, on a train, in the kitchen, movie theatre and the list just goes on. So, the app needs to be developed in context of the location.
