Create a menu in Adobe Photoshop – Create the background

Create the background.

Add the images, text, lines, or shapes that make up the background. All elements that are not part of button layer sets (more about these in the next step) become the background of the menu. The background can be multilayered, with elements in layer sets or on individual layers. If you add lines, make them 3 pixels or greater to avoid flickering on a television screen. If you are creating an NTSC project, use only NTSC-safe colors. Colors that fall outside the NTSC color range can cause an unwanted halo effect when displayed on television monitors.

We’ve created a background using a still image, filled shapes, and a title.
