There are thousands of news studio backgrounds, be way more specific.

And when I searched googles images I got lots of them, so try that.

Sorry to bump, but I guess it beats making a new thread for the same topic.

You (Henry701) say that there are thousands of news studio backgrounds, but I think I found about.... 1 or 2.

Where did you find yours? I need a good one, and I'm sure I'm not alone.

And one more:

But really, make it yourself. It will lok better and do it's job bettter.

Just take a textured backdrop like this one:

Add your logo in there anda video of what your talking about. That will look way better.

Those are news backdrops? I was really thinking about a news desk. Those pictures are exactly what I found on Google Images.

The last link and the second to last link are the closest, but the one of them has watermarks all over it, and the other is way too small.

Maybe I'll make my own. When I do, I'll post them here.

I think you have a desk or a table you can film infront of a greenscreen.

I agree that it would be best to make your own backdrop in a program like photoshop or the GIMP, or if you're really desperate, Paint.

This is something I have been looking for for a long ime. The ones on google were garbage and everywhere else lacked anything of quality. Finally, I resultd to using a plain backround.

I've created some news backdrops that you're welcome to have, just send me a message.

Shame I can't post the pics here to view.

If you have some to share, feel free to upload them to imageshack.us or Photobucket and use BBcode to post it here, like so:
[img]http://www.domain.com/image.jpg[/img]

Granted, this thread is about three years old, so there's no saying the original posters still need them. However, I'm sure it would be helpful for other members around the forums!

Thanks, there not the best backdrops but I hope it helps some out there.

I took these images from a site and cleaned them up the best I can, had desks and cameras in place.

i used one found on google for a client where i've cut out the desk, so in a photoshop file the background is a seperate layer and the desk another one. This way you can place people behind the desk.

It also has a tv screen on the right side where you can place images.

If there's any interest I can place the file here tonight when i get home

I would be interested in a copy, I love your background news desk image. I have adobe photoshop so editing the file should be easy.

As .jpg can't contain Alpha channels (= transparency), make sure to save them as .png or .tif files if possible as they both contain alpha channels. Using alpha channels will save you a lot of time, not having to mask out the desk from a background, as well as being able to create semi-transparent areas in your image.

I tried going to the link above, but it took me to a site that was in another language and I could not find that file. Any other suggestions with links in English?

I am looking for a backdrop of a news studio or like the last one with the women who seems to be walking by or walking away.

Thanks!

I made my own news desk using MSPaint and some of the wood backgrounds in PowerPoint and layered the finished desk against a talkshow background with a greenscreen in the back for video and weather reports.

If you don't have photosphop, the free program, Gimp, can open .psd files.
