Stamp effect in photoshop

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by maney, Aug 26, 2006.

    I have a logo (you can see it on my forum, link in signature) and I want to add a stamp effect to it in photoshop. To get an idea of what I mean, take a look at this website : http://phpbbfm.net/ they have taken the phpbb logo and added their stamp to it. I want to do a similar thing (only in green and saying forum, hehe).

    Any good tutorials I can follow? I've been trying google but I've only found one that actually created something similar to what I mean and that had to be done in a seperate file on a white background, then it I tried to remove the background things screwed up a little.

    edit: Heres a link to a tutorial I found, and its what I am looking for only I want it to be square and done on the file http://www.thedesignworld.com/photoshop-tutorials/text-effects/passport-stamp/ I'll have a crack at it but I on't think its going to make something I can put into the file :(

    You can make a simple stamp effect with css. Put a 10-15px padding area around your image that contrasts from your bg. Then apply a dashed border around your image the color of your bg.

    Example:
    
    padding: 10px;
    background: white;
    border: 3px dashed grey;
    
    Code (markup):
    note: grey is the color of the background of the page in this example.
