Hi! My name is Nigel French and welcome to Photoshop for Designers, Textures. Textures are a great way to create visual interest, heighten realism and add dimension to your Photoshop artwork. To start with we will use Photoshop Filters, but we will be doing much more than just choosing a filter for a generic result. We will be applying them thoughtfully in combination and we will be painting in their effects with layer masks. I will show you how to combine textures with images using Photoshop's layer Blending modes.
We will be working with brushes to paint in and accentuate texture and creating brush presets by sampling photographic textures. We will explore Photoshop's texture-related features, layer styles, pattern, and texture presets. Lastly we will see how to automate the application of textures through the use of Photoshop actions. So let's get started with Photoshop for Designers, Textures.
