Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying texture to an uneven surface, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
So here we're going to apply texture to an uneven surface.…So I am going to try and make it look like she really is a cheetah woman…rather than she has just had a cheetah texture laid on top of her and then a…Blending mode applied.…Let's take a look at the layers panel with the finished version and there is…quite a lot going on here.…So I am just going to switch over to the starting version and then tell you…about all these things as and when we go along.…I pulled off my layers panel so that we can have a bit of growing room with this.…
Here is our starting point.…We've got the background layer.…On the background layer we have a Gradient Overlay.…The Gradient Overlay is applying a vignette, darkening of the edges.…On top of that we have the face and the face has a layer Mask applied to it,…masking out the background.…First thing we want to do is apply a Bevel and Emboss effect to this layer.…So I am going to come down to my layer Effects>Bevel and Emboss and the type of…Bevel Emboss I am after is a Texture Bevel.…
