This is a simple way of creating a CD cover design with digitized background and neon lights text. This method was adapted from an old Photoshop tutorial which I’ve then modified and used to create this cool digital-concept CD cover design.
Open an image for the background and Duplicate the layer.

Then, go to Filter > Stylize > Find Edges. The results should be similar to what you see here. Cool ain’t it?
Invert the layer before duplicating it.
Next, go to Filter > Stylize > Find Edges again. This is to add more outline on the colorful dots.
Duplicate this layer (Layer 1 copy 2) for the next effect. Go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and follow the settings below:
Now, hide “Layer 1 copy 2” and work on “Layer 1 Copy”. Do the same steps as previous layer, but change the Angle to -45.
Adjust the Opacity of “Layer 1 copy 2” to 60. Now you will see that the lines are cross-hatched.
Open the next image. Mask out the dancer using Magic Tool (W) and bring it to background workspace we have just created. Transform it to your prefered size.

Next, fill the selected area in Black and Crop (C) the image into a square (or whichever size you might want it to be).
