Today I saw that the guys at PSDTUTS.com published another tutorial I wrote, Reader Request: MSNBC Style Effect. It's a really nice effect and very easy to do too. One of the coolest thing in this effect is that you can use it to create lots of different designs. You can create a header for your site like MSNBC did, or you can create some compositions with photos.

Here you can see the end result of the tutorial

And here is another image I created using the same effect but this time I mixed it with a very beautiful girl. I know the girl makes the design much better. Anyway I'm writing a tutorial showing all steps.
