Photoshop Masterclass: Synthwave Art



Synthwave (also called outrun, retrowave, or futuresynth) is an electronic music microgenre that is based predominantly on the music associated with action, science-fiction, and horror film soundtracks, combined with the aesthetic of popular music of the 1980s. In this session Adobe Evangelist Paul Trani will create synthwave art in Photoshop using gradients, 80s type, gridlines, and photos.
