First of all, you have to create a new picture. The dimensions are 350×19 pixels.
Next, you must choose you background color. It is best to use the gradient tool(G key) and the colors that would suit the thing you are making a bar for. In this case, I will be using a black color going to red.
Now, we must add the diagonal lines seen in all the userbars. To do this, create a new picture, dimensions 4×4 pixels.Zoom it with Zoom Tool (Z key) to the maximum.Next, use the pencil tool(B key) on that picture to create a diagonal line like on the video.
When you draw that, go to Edit – Define Pattern and choose the pattern name. Now go back to the first picture. Edit – Fill and choose your pattern. Since the lines are too bold, I would advise you to lower the opacity. I use 8% myself, but it’s up to you to decide.
Now it’s time to add the logo to the picture.File – Open and open the logo. Click on the logo and drop it upon the image.
Now we’ve got only two things left
First you should add the elliptic transparent white part. In order to do that, choose the Marquee Tool(M key)-Elliptical Marquee Tool Create a new ellipse with this tool so that it’s bottom part is located in the top of the picture. Pick up Brush Tool (B key) , White Color , 23% Opacity.
The second one is to add text to the userbar. For this, most people use the Visitor -BRK- font. That’s what I’m going to use, too. When you choose the font tool, choose Palettes and set the font size to 11 pt.When you write the text, press U for Rectangle Tool and right click upon the text – Blending Options…
Drop Shadow Opacity 75% , Angle 120° , Distance 5px, Spread 0, Size 5 px.
Stroke Choose your color , Size 1 px, PositionOutside, Blend modenormal ,Opacity 100% . Click OK.
And we are done ! =]
