Here’s a beautiful vinyl record design that you can create. The procedure is simple and pretty much straightforward so you can easily follow it.
This featured tutorial is courtesy from the guys at PSD Chat. After you’ve finished the project, you can create other textures like plastic and metallic buttons, knobs, etc. using similar techniques.
Before you get started, you need to download this wood floor texture by gnrbishop.
The first thing you need to do after downloading the texture is to open your Photoshop and create a new document with canvas size of 570 pixels by 300 pixels set at 72 dpi.
Create a new layer for the “vinyl” and fill it with #141414 color set-up. Fill the layer with noise (Filter > Noise > Add Noise) with amount of 15. You will need it to create the circular illustration of the vinyl record. Blur the layer radially (Filter > Blur > Radial Blur), set it to best quality, then spin with amount of 100. Using the Ellipse Tool, you can create the shape of the vinyl by placing the cursor as close as you can to the center of Radial Blur and click-hold down Shift + Alt.
According to PSD Chat’s reminder, if you first hold Shift + Alt and click, the alt command might override that can result in opening the color picker tool. You have to first click and hold then press Shift +Alt.
Note: If you want to create a metallic record, you must use a light gray color in the first step.
