In Photoshop CS5 Essential Training, author Michael Ninness demonstrates how to produce the highest quality images with fantastic detail in the shortest amount of time, using a combination of Photoshop CS5, Adobe Bridge, and Camera Raw. This course shows the most efficient ways to perform common editing tasks, including noise reduction, shadow and highlight detail recovery, retouching, and combining multiple images. Along the way, Michael shares the secrets of non-destructive editing, utilizing and mastering Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, layers, adjustment layers, blending modes, layer masks, and much more. Exercise files are included with the course.
So, I would like to give you an example of more of a creative filter, as opposed to those utilitarian ones, like Sharpen, and Blur, and Noise. I am going to show you the Texture filter, something called Texturizer, and I want to make this image look like it's been printed on canvas. This effect actually can look very realistic when you're printing to an Inkjet printer. It actually makes it look like you used a canvas material, even though you didn't. So, to get started, let's convert this layer to a Smart Object. We will do it under Filter > Convert for Smart Filters, and then we will go back to Filter and choose Texture > Texturizer.
Once that opens, you'll see that there are several different texture settings that you can choose up here in the Texture pop-up menu. Over here where it says Texture, there is Canvas, Burlap, Brick, and Sandstone. Brick is definitely cheesy. Burlap has some use. My favorite one is Canvas. It looks the most real. Now the default setting is actually Top. I had already changed it before. I actually think you get better results by changing the Light source that will be from the Top Left. Just gives you a little bit more realism to make that canvas texture pop-up and actually look like that surface has that texture there.
Go ahead and click OK, and that's how easy it is. You print that on your Inkjet printer, and you've got a nice-looking effect as if you had printed this on cool-looking canvas.
