Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Texture from type, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Effects (2018).
- [Instructor] In this composition…I'm going to build texture with type…through the application of a custom brush.…If we come to the layers panel in the finished state…we can see that I have a layer group on which…I have these four separate layers overlapping each other…and the blending mode of the layer is set to overlay.…So if I now come to the starting state,…we can see that we're missing one of those layers…and that's what I'm going to do here…to finish this composition.…
So I need to open up my original text layer group…and here we see the original words…and the one that we need is stress.…I'm going to CMD+Click on the thumbnail of that type…and then come to the edit menu…and choose define brush preset.…I can now hide that layer and press CMD or CTRL+D…to drop that active selection.…
And I'll come to my brush settings.…Let me just point out that we have here…as a brush group all of the brushes…but I just want to show you how one of them was created.…So coming to the one that I just added,…I'll then come to my brush settings.…
