Learn about adding type to fabric using the Displace filter.
- [Instructor] In this movie I'm going to show you…how we can create a simple displacement.…Here's my starting state.…I have a layer of type on a background layer,…and the first thing I want to do is…distort my type into position.…So I will right click on that type layer,…and convert it to a Smart Object,…and then press command, or control + T.…That's going to put a transformation rectangle around the type.…Now I will distort it.…
I'm going to hold down the command key, or the control key,…and pull this into place.…Once I'm most of the way there,…I'll come up to my Tool options,…and switch to my Freeform wop,…and pull on these bezier handles.…I'll press return to commit to that,…and now I want to apply the Displace Filter.…The Displace Filter works in conjunction…with a displacement map.…And typically that is a copy, a greyscale copy…of the image, in this case it would be…the image without the type.…
So what I did to make my displacement map…was come to the Image menu, and choose Duplicate,…Duplicate Merged Layers Only,…
