Below is an example of what I created using two photos and an image from a business card to have a header for a working website using Photoshop.

On the left, I took a picture of a decorative concrete patio and a second photograph on the right showing men at work with some equipment excavating for a new driveway. Both of these photos were cropped from their original size to be resized to fit on my blue background that I set up for my header. The header is for a banner at the top of the website I designed for this company that when clicked on takes you back to the homepage.

You can see from the picture that the total width of the photo was used, and just some of the top and bottom of the image have been cut off by cropping. How much you crop an image and decide to keep is entirely up to you to accomplish the desired look and appeal to what you are creating for the final product. When it comes to cropping a picture, you can take as much or as little as you see fit from any location on the photo. I reduced the overall height of the image to keep the header a reasonable size.

Just as the photograph above was cropped to fit the headers height restrictions, I had also done the same for this patio image that shows you the final size I wanted. I cropped the height for both images to be the same and for the combined width to give me the proper header dimension. This photograph was cropped for the first stages to create a whole new logo for the company’s website. The thing that needed to be done was to take one company called Preston’s Concrete Solutions which was using a font for the name as it’s logo and incorporate it with a second companies logo from First Quality Concrete.

 

 

The logo from First quality Concrete I took from the business card image supplied to me as shown below.

  1. Hello there Travis, I’ve always wanted to learn photoshop. Your examples look really nice and professional. I think this is something a few of my friends (and me) would be interested in. How hard is the learning curve to do something like you did in the last photograph? That looks really slick.

    • Hi Jason, the logo I did for the website that I put in this post took me about an hour to learn the concept for while I was playing around with photoshop 6 in the beginning. Depending on what you what to learn you’ll find some things are very quick to learn while other things will take hours. It also depends a lot on what you already know about similer software packages and other programs you may have used.
