Create Texture Layers Using Photoshop

Create Texture Layers Using Photoshop

Sometimes finding the right texture for a composite can be difficult. You may have photographed lots of textures and have a good library of files to choose from. But, perhaps you don’t have access to old papers or canvases to create expensive-looking studio backdrops. Using just a few simple tools you can create texture layers using Photoshop. By using blend modes to mix several colour and patter layers you can create your own antique papers or canvases. Adding a border or a vignette is not difficult either. These 2 videos take you through some of the tools you might like to use to try creating your own texture layers from scratch. Of course, you can also use these techniques to enhance any textures you already have that might benefit from some manipulation.
