Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating synthetic textures with the Clouds filter, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
Here I'm going to demonstrate how we can create a texture from nothing. …The Render filters like Clouds, Difference Clouds, and Fibers, let us …create synthetic textures either from transparency, in the case of Clouds and …Difference Clouds, or some opaque pixels, in the case of Fibers. …So here I've created a texture by combining Clouds with Bar Relief and Chrome. …And I'm going to recreate something similar, in the beginning state of this file. …So I have a empty layer above my shape layer.…
There's nothing on it whatsoever. And from the Filter menu, I'm going to …come to Render and clouds, and that's going to give me this black on white …clouds texture rendered from my foreground and background colors. …I'm actually going to undo that, because in order to keep a track of what's been …applied to this layer, I am first going convert it to a smart object. …And then I'll run that filter again. And we can now see that I can revisit …clouds, should I need to. I can turn it off and on, etcetera.…
