I have had so much trouble trying to make my own textured papers. It's the sticking part of my process. Thank you so much for this tutorial. It really helped!

Awesome! I have been trying to do this with no success, I can see where I was going wrong now. Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

I never thought of duplicating layers to strengthen an feature. I always struggle with my settings. I saw someone do this on as well and realized I've been causing myself headaches trying to find the correct settings. I make the feature light at first and then began adding the feature multiple times until it was what I wanted. Brilliant.

Thanks! Now I know what to do with the hundreds of photos I've been taking just for texture sake smiley I love taking photos and turning them into usable digital art.

thank you, very good tutorial

I don't know how I found your site but I am so GLAD I did... once again.. I am learning... thanks

Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Wow! I can imagine many hours of experimenting with this!

Very good, congratulations.

Thanks for sharing.


ok, I hate to bump up an oldish thread but I have a question
if we're to scan papers and stuff to make texture, is it ok to scan a letter size (that's my scanner bed, letter size/A4) 300 DPI, and then use a 12"x12" (or 3600x3600dpi) section? is that enough of a resolution?

And for taking photos of t hings, I always try to take macro photos, my camera (both phone and P&S) are 8Megapixels, is that sufficient? I am sure it depends on what we're photographing but I really want a new camera but it's nowhere in my future, and I want to know if what I'm making is good enough quality. Any tips? Looking on google for photoshop texture size doesn't quite bring up the results I'm after! smiley

Thanks for sharing! I'm going to try this out soon!
