When coming up for ideas for my interactive multimedia portfolio I began testing with making a semi-transparent web layout. I started with something like this.

This looks alright but its when you start testing with different backgrounds and blending modes in Photoshop you can come up with something that looks very simple and professional yet rich and visually enticing; depending on the background you choose. I chose some Photoshop work I created about a year back during my space art phase.

If you really want to get fancy you could create a switchable background control and let the user choose which they want. Even better… bring a layout like this from Photoshop into Flash and use an animated background while still retaining the layer blending modes from Photoshop. I love Adobe CS4!
