You’ve seen the Obama “Hope” poster everywhere. It’s on T-shirts, posters, and billboards, and it became one of the most recognizable works of art during the 2008 presidential campaign. If you’re wondering how to create your own Obama Hope Poster, you’ve come to the right place. There’s no need to hire a graphic designer to create a poster for your campaign! Use a photo editing program to create your own.
In Photoshop, select the portrait you want to trace and click the rectangular marquee tool. In Photoshop, select the Obama poster style. Now, open it in your Photo Editor. You’ll get an image that looks like Obama’s Hope Poster. You can save it as a project. After you’re finished, simply open the image in Photo Editor.
Click on the background image to begin the process of creating the poster. You can use the reference image as a guide. You can start by selecting the background colour and the shirt collar of Obama. Click the “Reference image” button in Photoshop to choose the best image of Obama. Also, choose a background rectangle of 0.75 inches wide and rotated 27°. You will need to leave enough space for additional text and slogan. Then, create a new layer over the rectangle layers and below the photo layer. Next, select the Ellipse Tool (U) and draw a large circle that has a purple fill.
