wave v2 tutorial

You'll be making something like this:

The Steps

1. Make a new document size 350x467. Click on the rectangular marquee tool. Make a SMALL rectangle diagonal or horizontal. You don't want the line to be too big. I cropped mine for tutorial purposes only. Yours should be normal sized.

2. Click "Layer >> New Fill Layer >> Solid Color >> OK." Make sure you choose the first color of your color scheme. Duplicate the layer 3 times. Change the colors of each to match your color scheme and use the move tool to line them up!

3. Click on the rectangular marquee tool and outline around the rectangles just enough to where you will be able to see a small amount of white showing on the sides. (this is zoomed so it's easier to see)

Use the paint bucket tool or a new fill layer and put white in the rectangle. I have this now

4. Click on this area.

5. Click "Filter >> Distort >> Wave." You can use these settings or your own. I'm just using random settings.

6. Now do the same with the rest. You should see an option to just click filter >> wave (wave should be at the top now) but if not than use the same wave settings as last time. Make sure you make the white behind the rectangles wave too. That's it! Take note that sometimes you will want the lines to be smaller than this.
