The Ultimate Photoshop Texturing Tutorial – Photoshop Texture Video Tutorial

Photoshop June 20th 2011 4:26 PM 14 Comments


Welcome to SLR Lounge’s Ultimate Photoshop Texturing Tutorial. A while back, we created a written texturing tutorial. I felt like it was about time to take that tutorial and turn it into a video adding additional techniques along the way.

In this Photoshop video tutorial, we are going to show you how to texture an image in Photoshop the correct way using Averaging instead of using Layer Masks to remove textures over our subjects.

We will use our base image file, along with two different textures, all of which are downloadable below in the exercise files. After we texture our image, we will add several Layer Adjustments to finalize our image.

If you would like to see the full original and final images from this tutorial, please visit the SLR Lounge Facebook Photo Album.

As always, enjoy and share the love! =)

    Excellent tutorial! Thank you. One question. In the original tute you mentioned switching to 8 bit mode but in the video you didn’t bring it up. I was just wondering why. Thanks again!

    Nice tutorial! I actually used it for my very first attempt at Illustrator and Photoshop. Even tho I had just little knowledge of the raw basics in both software, it turned out more than satisfying! Very thankful for that, gives the motivation to explore further.

    Here’s the result ;

    Thanks again!
