30+ smashing tutorials for creating Texture and Background Effects in Photoshop

We all know that attractive backgrounds are very much needed for any graphics, banners or ads these days. An interesting artwork can make the abstract art , vector or texture pattern more appealing . Getting the correct theme, whether it’s an abstract art, vector, or texture pattern, somehow makes the entire artwork looks more interesting.

Hope most of you know the importance of a good background image . For Instance , some product graphics advertisements uses subtle background or texture to help create focus point. Even your Desktop also needs a good attractive background as well. And also for most of the web designers creating backgrounds is a tedious job , since for that you need to know photoshop or Adobe illustrator and other image editing software. Even though if you are good at CSS programming skills without a background image you can't create a much appealing site.

So here I present some of the most famous and interesting abstracts and background tutorials for Adobe Photoshop users.It’s probably not about getting the exact effect they’ve got, but to pickup the technique and see how you can advance from there.
