    Looks like a radial gradient or soft brush behind a diagonal line pattern. Google 'Diagonal line background' or any variation thereof and you should get some helpful results.

    You can use the pen tool to create diagonal lines then save it as a pattern then when you come to create it use your paint bucket and select pattern from the menu at the top. With diagonal lines you will have to make sure it lines up as I have only done it with vertical lines.

    It is pretty easy to accomplish. Basically start out by making a new image that is 50 px x 50 px or so. The exact size doesn't matter per say, so you can play with it once you see the results. Then zoom in until you can see the pixel cells. Then what you'll do is paint the diagonal pixel cells in with your desired color. Then once you have that zoom back out (Cmd or Ctrl +1). You'll then save this as a pattern and will be able to apply it to any shape or layer that you want. So create a seperate layer and grab the Gradient tool. You'll want the linear gradient and drag it horizontally across the layer. You'll have to play with the gradient settings and color spacing to get similar results. Basically looks like they have white at both ends, with a grayish-blue close to the right hand side. Then you just drop a pattern overlay on top of that.

    Might seem like a lot if you're new to photoshop, but it is pretty easy actually.

    Tomy, since you are new to Photoshop I made up this short tutorial explianing how to make this graphic effect. Note: the following is based on the assumption that this image isn't copyrighted or stolen.

    1.) Start by copying the graphic and pasting it in a new Photoshop document (make the document larger than the graphic so you have some room to play with). Now zoom in so you can see what you're doing (I zoomed in to 1200%), then add some guides top and bottom. If you have the layer selected with the graphic on it, then the guides will automatically "snap" to the top and bottom of the image, as long as you have that option selected (View > Snap).



    2.) Next select your Eyedropper Tool and click in one of the grey squares to set your Foreground color.



    3.) Grab the Line Tool and set the size to 1px, then (while holding down your Shift key) draw a diagonal line between the guides.



    4.) Create a new layer and place it above the image layer. Grab your Path Selection Tool (black arrow) and select the line you just made, then right click and choose "Fill Path".



    5.) In the option box that pops up select Foreground Color and make sure the anti-alias box is unchecked, then click OK.



    6.) Now you'll have a diagonal line of the same color as in the graphic, and because you turned off the anti-aliasing in the fill options box the line will be nice and clean.



    7.) Now make sure your Rectangular Marquee Tool is selected in your toolbar and then hold down the Ctrl key and click on the layer with the line you just made. This will create a selection of the line which you can move using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Move the selection and fill it by hitting the Alt and Delete keys. Keep doing this until you have as many lines as you want.



    Once you are done you can create a rectangular background behind the lines and fill it with a gradient to get the effect you want. To get the lines to work I had to set that layer to Multiply so they appeared darker over the gradient background. Here's my finished image...

    Damn Desktop,
    you seem like a very helpful and knowledgeable person. I hope you'll be sticking around for a long time.

    I just feel bad that this beautiful post is probably useless cause the original poster hasn't replied to this thread since March 1st. I'm sure SOMEONE will find this helpful though.

    Thanks Harmonic. Maybe we can start a tutorial thread somewhere. I have a lot of older tutorials I wrote for Photoshop and Illustrator, back when I had a site on Blogger.

    Tutorial thread can be found here.

    Looking forward to seeing what you guys have to offer - I always like to learn.
    One point, though - you can't post a link to a tutorial here that's posted elsewhere, you have to post in in full here.
