Before I begin, I requre you to have a basic knowlage of photoshop (Aka knowlage of where the tabs/buttons are.)

Reference:
C4d: A 3d image rendered in cinema 4d
Render: A picture with the background removed
Stock: A picture without a transparent background
BG: Background

In this tut ill teach you how to make something like this
Image


Step one:
Open a new document/canvas
Set it at Width:400 Height: 120
Then select the render stock you want to use and place it on the canvas.
(Hint: Resize the image to fit the canvas (most renders are 1024x768) remember to have "constrain proportions" on, and just change number to fit it and photoshop will do the rest.)
(You should have something like this so far, you should have a transparent backgound, unlike me(aka the little gray/white squares.))
Image

Step two:
Choose 2 different colors that would fit a theme.
Make a new layer and move it under the render layer.
Then select the gradient tool(Right click on the paint bucket and select it)
Make sure it's a "Linear" Gradient, then just make a diagonal line across the canvas on the layer that's under the render layer.
(What you should have so far)
Image

Step Three:
Make another layer and choose the lighter of the two colors you picked out for the Gradient, and make another one but blend it with "Soft Light"
(There is no real big differnce between step 2 and 3, but a change is a change.)
Image

Step Four:
Find a C4d you think matches and place it behind render place it where you see fit, be sure to set the blending to screen.
(note: if the C4d has a black background lower the opacity and the black background will turn transparent.)
(I changed the colors due to c4ds appearing nearly invisible.)
Image

Step Five:
Duplicate you render twice, set the blending on the one above the original to "Multiply" and the one above that to "screen". Pick up your eraser tool and set it to 13px(pixel) soft. Now erase parts of the "screen" layer if you want it to look darker. (Don't worry about the BG, as long as you have the "screen" layer selected you'll only erase the render.
Image
(I just deleted the entire screen layer, you don't have to if you don't want it to look darker.)

Step Six:
Go to you're BG layer(Your bottom most layer if you didn't ancor the render, if you did ancor it it's the layer ABOVE you bottom most layer.)
It should be your Gradient layer, Duplicate it and drag it above ALL your layers, then set it's blending to "screen" and set it's opacity to 25-30%
(hint: use the master opacity slider, in your layers window above the layers.)
Image

Step Seven: (optional)
Make another layer(Yes, another one), select the brush tool and set it to 100PX soft. Brush on the stock near the bottom, then set it's opacity to 60% to add a fog/light effect.
Image
(If you want you can add a border, but for a tag this small I don't see a need.)

Step Eight:
Select the text tool and type whatever you want on it, and you're done!

My outcome:
Image

Please, post your outcomes, I want to see how well you can follow simple steps.
