Apologies to our readers for being a little late on writing this week’s tutorial, as you guys know that our webmaster Ayaz Malik has just got married and that’s the reason our posting routine has been upset lately. But we believe we will be back on track in just a day or two.
Anyways, getting back to this post, this is a tutorial to create a media player design in Photoshop. It is an easy tutorial so you should try it even if you are just a newbie. It doesn’t even require much time.
We Are Making This:
Creating the Base
First of all, let’s create a background color.
Time for noise to make the background eye-catching. Go to Filter>Noise>Add Noise.
Select Rounded Rectangular Tool and make a box. This will be our media player.
Now let’s fill the box with some Layer Styles.
Make another box with the help of Rounded Rectangular Tool for playlist area.
And the layer styles.
Video Display Area
Another box here.
Making a circle with the help Ellipse Tool. These will be our play/pause buttons.
These are the Layer Styles for rounded buttons.
Result of Buttons
Select the Triangle Custom Shape for making Play Button. After grabbing the shape from Custom Shapes Tool, I rotated it.
A little bit of Inner Glow Layer Style looks nice here.
Adding plain text here. You can play with colors, I just used solid black and gray.
The time stamp is made using the font “Digital 7“.
Time to make a visualizer. For that, I just created a box and typed an ‘I’ in Arial Black. Then duplicated multiple times. Please see the result for detail.
Now I’m making a ‘seek bar’. For that I created a Rounded Rectangle Box which looks like a bar.
Now let’s give that seek bar an emboss.
Here I’m typing a plus symbol (+).
Layer Styles for the plus symbol.
Result of Media Gallery
I just made a few buttons for adding media and files.
These pictures represent album titles, so consider them as song/album titles.
I’m applying the following Layer Styles on a box, where is this box placed? Just check out the result.
Here it is
Now I’m adding another picture for cover or any relevant image a DVD/BR can carry. And then I’m making a search bar. I used the search icon from Custom Shapes Tool.
I’m using thumbnail from Incredible Collection Of Vector Artworks
