DNA Tri-Waves Tutorial
Feel free to leave a wordpress comment or contact me on Facebook if you are having any trouble with this tutorial. Enjoy~*
Create a new blank document. I made mine 350×300 to save space for the tutorial. Inside this document, take your Rectangular Marquee Tool and make a selection that’s a few pixels wide but is as long as the document (see below).
Fill this selection with the first color of your color scheme.
Duplicate this layer and use the move tool to move it to the right of your original layer so that they are touching, and then add a color overlay for the next color in your scheme.
Continue on with this pattern until you have all the colors in your scheme next to each other, and then merge them together.
Go to Filer > Distort > Wave. The box with Wave options will pop up.
On the right hand side near the “OK” button is a type box.
Change it from Sine or Square to Triangle. Then make your settings match mine:
Number of Generators: 1
Wavelength Min: 1, Max: 202
Amplitude Min: 36, Max: 117
Leave Scale alone. Then hit okay. Hopefully, your triangle wave came out something like this:
Duplicate your triangle wave layer and then go to Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal.
Now I’ll look like this:
and you’re done!
That’s pretty much it. You can add this onto headers and signs and whatnot. This is how I use mine in signs:
