Chapter 5. I Want Candy: Photoshop iCandy > High-Tech Transparent Info Boxes

High-Tech Transparent Info Boxes

I wanted to include an effect that was similar to the high-tech transparent info boxes you see used on ESPN, FOX Sports, and other nationally televised sports events for displaying scores, stats, and team info during games. I used this effect myself when creating the interface for a Photoshop training CD-ROM, but it works just as well over video, as a DVD interface, or even simply in print.

Quick Tip: Making circular selections

When you draw a circular selection with the Elliptical Marquee tool, by default, it draws from where you first click your mouse button, but if you prefer, you can drag your circular selection from the center outward by holding the Option key (PC: Alt key) while you drag. Don't forget to add the Shift key if you want to keep your circle perfectly round as you drag.
