Smile Photoshop textures

Hi there

Does anyone know of a good website where i can find some nice arty textures.
(suitable for pencil sketches, watercolors etc)

I'm not sure if its possible to to get them so that i can load them into photoshop so that they work like the filters already in photoshop?

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Photoshop textures

You can use any B&W picture in PSD format to work with texturizer filter. To get it to work you either have to load it to the folder there texturizer takes it's basic textures (never got to figure which folder it is myself, although shouldn't be too difficult), or to indicate path to the file every time you use texturizer. Any texture you find on the net can be converted to B&W and used as PS texture. Trimoon's site have a few very nice textures. BTW apart from what is in the texturizer PS has a large folder with textures hidden somewhere under resources I believe. I can e-mail you my textures folder if you like.

Re: Photoshop textures

One option is to look at textures at

http://www.deviantart.com/ ;
http://www.sxc.hu/
http://www.morguefile.com/

and select those that may be suitable as texturizer textures.

sponge
when you have downloaded the textures to be able to use them with the texturizer filter (there is a load texture button which you will then need to navigate to where you have the textures ) they need to be saved as psd files

Swampy's way is to open a new layer fill with 50% grey and use the texturizer on this layer and then set the blend mode and opacity to taste

Myself i rarely use the texturizer filter but drag the texture on top of the image ( ususally resiszing) then set the blend mode, opacity etc

hope that is not too confusing
and i get a lot of my textures from here
