Now that we have been introduced Photoshop and a couple of the most essential tools, let's put the first four tutorials in this series to good use and make a nice background for a mobile application. Designing app backgrounds differs from designing desktop backgrounds in at least one fundamental way: you have to strip out all unnecessary clutter and only provide the user with what is absolutely necessary. Read on to learn more!

I am starting with just one image that we will turn into a visually appealing background to be used as a mobile application home page / landing screen. The homepage is probably the single most important page on a site. More often than not, it is the first page your user will see, and if it isn't appealing or easy to use, the user will go find something that is.

We are going to be utilizing all of the tools I covered in the previous three tutorials, so if you haven't checked those out yet, I urge you to read them first now.
