I’ve always had my eye on the marquee tool, but since the advent of Photoshop, I’ve had it tucked away in my toolbox. It’s a tool that allows you to create a marquee effect on your screen. It allows you to create complex text and images in an instant, and it’s especially useful when you want to create an effect that looks like a marquee.
While you might be tempted to think that marquee tools are for geeks, I have to say that they can be extremely useful for creatives. Ive used them for an entire website that I created because I wanted to have a marquee centered over my homepage image. I used it as the page header for a book I was creating. It was so much fun to work on and, even now, I’m still working on some more marquee effects.
I love these marquee tools so much that I would use one for every project.
There’s a lot more to marquee tools than you might think. Take a look at our article on the subject. Here are a few of the many marquee effects I use.
The marquee tool is a simple and powerful tool that allows you to set up a marquee to appear above or below the current page (or image) with ease.
In a marquee tool, the image you’re using to set up the marquee is called a “container.” The container can be any image, but generally it’s a JPEG or PNG file. You can change the background color, font color, or even the opacity of the image. Also, you can add an image or a folder of images as a container. So instead of having one image over the other, you have a bunch of them.
There are really two types of containers you can use to create a marquee. The first ones are really easy to use like our first one above. The second ones have a bit of a learning curve. You have to use a “mask” to tell Photoshop where to draw your marquee. You can set it to show on the left, right, top, or bottom of your page.
The first one is easy, but you do need to know where to draw the marquee. Here’s how you do that: Open Photoshop in your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 desktop. It’s a great way to learn if you don’t know how to use many of the tools like Illustrator. You can access Photoshop by going to the Start Menu > All Programs > Adobe Photoshop. Then click on it and you should see the Adobe Photoshop icon.
If you click on that icon you may be taken to another page that may or may not be the one you want. It depends on what you selected there. If you want it to be at the left of the page, click on the first option. If you want it to be on the right, click on the second option. If you want it to be at the bottom, click on the third option. The marquee tool in Photoshop can be used for so many things.
On the marquee tool, click the marquee rectangle. This will make the marquee expand, or contract as necessary. You can use the marquee tool to create a marquee at the bottom of an image or on a specific area of an image. Use the marquee to create a marquee to create a “wrap around” effect.
