Textures: a guide
Textures: A guide
A graphic maker is nothing without textures. Textures can give a unique atmosphere to an image, they can make your graphic uplifting or sad, romantic or angsty. Even when simply coloring caps, textures might come in handy to enhance the colors or to deepen the contrast. You should know upfront that experimenting is the keyword, and that knowledge of textures comes with photoshop experience.
This guide covers the following topics:
1. Downloading and organizing textures
2. Different types of textures
3. Blend modes
4. Layer masks
5. When to use which texture
6. Tips and tricks
This guide might be updated with more chapters and more details eventually.
In this guide I’ll be using textures by the following texture makers: accio-glow, callmebrandon, emmelia, finnickscleverfingers, lookbackseeforward, mirand-ah, olmes, planets-bend-between-us, rosebein, shocklock, shriekingshacks, wicked-fate, and yellowlemon
Note to these texture makers: if you want your textures removed from this tutorial, just drop me a line. I’m totally okay with not using your textures as an example, but please do consider that I’m giving you all the credit. Thank you.
