In today’s tutorial, we’re making a mixtape CD cover in Photoshop. This CD cover will have a road trip fill so to achieve this effect we will use a few Design Cuts resources including hi-res photos, textures and fonts, and a CD mockup. In this tutorial you will learn how to reflect an image, some blending techniques, working with a shape, layering and texturing and many more useful techniques. Let’s begin!
