- Let's take a look at a few Photoshop techniques…to modify the appearance of text.…One of my favorites is distressing text…to give it some age and texture.…In this case, I've opened up…a graphic that already has text built.…And given the name, having the text look so…crisp and perfect just doesn't seem fitting.…What I'm gonna do is load some textures in.…So I could choose file, scripts, load files into stack.…And if I browse, I can navigate to my folder…and you'll see a couple of different textures here.…
Using the control or the command key, you can select those.…You can also load a video layer…if you wanna use one of those.…And clicking ok, it'll pull those in.…Now in this case, I don't need…to do anything to align these.…I'll just click ok.…And don't make any smart objects as well.…There we go.…I quickly loaded all four.…If I select these, I could choose…them all in the layers panel.…
Then, I'm gonna choose window, arrange,…and do two up vertical.…You'll see the two documents side by side.…This makes it easy to just drag these over.…
