Resources Used In This Tutorial

Getting Started...

Create a new (Ctrl + N) document 800 x 600 pixels with any style background. I've simply created a simple background to showcase my login form and it looks like this.

img

Select the "Rectangle Tool" (U) with your foreground color set to white #ffffff then create a rectangle in the middle of your canvas. Once you've created the rectangle add a 1 pixel stroke from within the layers style window using the settings below.

img

Login Form Title

Select the "Text Type Tool" (T) then type out the title for your login box.

img

Here are the settings for the login box title.

img

Select the "Rectangular Marquee Tool" (M) then make two 1 pixel lines on top of each other. The top line should be black and the bottom line should be white, the lines should also span the width of the login box leaving a 20 pixel space either side of the line.

img

The white line at this point isn't visible at the moment but will be in the next step. Select the "Rectangular Marquee Tool" (M) then make a selection underneath the two 1 pixel lines we made in the previous step.

img

Once you've made the selection fill it with a linear gradient using a black to transparent gradient.

img

Set the opacity of the gradient to 2%, you should now have something like this.

img

The Form Fields

Select the "Rectangle Tool" (U) and create 3 rectangles on the left side of the login box. The 3 boxes should represent the username, password and submit button.

img

Add the following layer styles to the first 2 rectangles, which will be the username and passwords fields.

Now add the following layer styles to the smaller rectangle which will be the login button.

img

img

img

You should have something like this.

img

Download the icon set from the link below then add the icons shown in the image below to the desired fields. Then add the text to your fields using the "Type Tool" (T).

img

Creating The Middle Divider

Select the "Ellipse Tool" (U) then make an ellipse in the middle of the login box.

img

Add the following layer styles to the ellipse.

img

img

Set your foreground color to #eeeeee then select the "Rectangular Marquee Tool" (M) and make a selection starting from underneath the top divider to the bottom of the login box.

img

Select the "Gradient Tool" (G) with the gradient color options set to "Foreground to Transparent". Now drag the gradient inside of the selection dragging from the left side of the box. Repeat this step for the side of the circle only this time drag the gradient from the right.

img

Now create two 1 pixels lines next to each other vertically, color the first line in black and the other white. The lines should start from the title divider and end at the bottom of the login box, the lines should also pass underneath the ellipse in the middle. Set the lines layers blend mode to "Overlay".

img

Finally add the word "OR" inside of the ellipse, you should have something like this.

Adding The Social Connect Buttons

Download the social connect buttons from the link below then add them to your canvas at the bottom right side of your login box.

img

Now add some text above the social connect buttons like the image below.

That's it all done, hope your enjoyed this tutorial.
