I see a lot of websites like this one and I wanted to see where people get these images from to have the raised panel floating on the background. I see a lot of these sites use this technique and i wonder how they do this . .

enter image description here

Do these sites build this stuff in photoshop from scratch or is there a place to get templates like this to use on a website?

Yes, this is easy to do in Photoshop. Plenty of tutorials around.

Most people build simple things like this from scratch. Free stock photos such as the paper texture background can be found at: http://www.sxc.hu/ or http://www.stockvault.net

There are some free website templates like at http://www.freewebsitetemplates.com/ if that's what you are looking for.


I'm not a graphic artist but I work with several of them. For an experienced graphic artist this is fairly easy to do. It looks like they just made everything but the heading ("Our mission") and copy a background image and placed the text over it in a <DIV>. It probably would be a handful of layers:

  • one for the "paper"
  • one for the heading-background
  • one for the heading text
  • one for the photo
  • one for the signature

I don't know of there being a template out there for this but this is simple enough that there could be one. Maybe someone will know about it and link to it here.
