I’m experimenting with Photoshop today, and I discovered a nice trick.
Maybe you all know, but for those who don’t know, here goes:

Grab a vertical striped pattern, and make a background with that, like this one:


And then go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and apply this settings:

Angle: 81
Distance: 999

You will get this:


Playing with Angles degrees you will get different effects :D
Hope you like!

I’ve learned the most on Photoshop & Illustrator when I’m just messing around. Those applications have so many features, it seems overwhelming at times. So, I stay content just experimenting with them, and once in a while, you find a new technique or process to add to your back of design tricks. I have learned the most from tutorials though, they are truly great resources.

Thanks for the trick! :)
