In this tutorial I am going to teach you how to create a line loading icon by using Photoshop cs6, you would have seen it on many website and UI design to show loading process. It is not quite easily, you have to sharp focus on every step in this tutorial. You will learn more about masking effect so let's start.

Take a new document with any size as you required but make sure the background should be "Transparent", select Line tool (U key) and make adjustment in the optional bar then hold shift key and draw on the canvas with black color.

You have to cut a small part of the line picture, hold Ctrl + mouse click on the circle layer thumb to make selection and hide the layer then come on the line layer. Select Rectangular Marquee tool (M key) and hold shift key then apply half portion from left side, you have made perfectly but we have to take a little bit wide one line of them. Hold Alt key and apply on that line to deselect, press Ctrl + Shift + I key and apply "Add Layer Mask".
