  • Creating texture screens


    In a book I was looking at, one of the chapters talked about digital texture screens. I downloaded a trial screen from named " Etch Tone Filter" but although I see it in the plug in directory I can't seem to make it do anything. I usually don't have a problem with stuff like that but this one is perplexing me.

    Also, I'm wondering if there is any tutorial somewhere about creating texture screens. What I'd like to create is some kind of cracked oil texture like in the old masters paintings.

    BTW -- folks -- the link to Andromeda will work if you take out the extra "i" (Andromeda, not Andromedia).

    Since it's a demo, and has the "OK" button grayed out, it is hard to get a good idea of how it will affect an image. I gave it a try -- it was available in my dropdown list of filters, (after restarting PShop) and would open up to what looked like an ad for the company -- after I clicked on the Etchtone filter demo name (inside the rectangle), it opened up to show two windows - one for the original image you are working on (left side), and one to show the effects of the filter as you adjust the sliders for contrast etc. -- AFTER you choose either the "Blend" or "Overlay" box in the center of the filter box. (I think that is necessary).

    I remember looking at this last year sometime and loving the look of the metal on those spurs in their ad. Seems we could create something like that if we tried... It's a beautiful look, but $98 is a lot of money.... but it sure is a beautiful look...

      Thanks for the link correction.
      When I go to open the filter I get the company ad but then it tells me that the filter is not where it should be . I'll fool around with it some more tomorrow. I agree that the price is abit high and I'm wondering just how hard it would be to create something. Guess the place to start would be the texturizer filter and perhaps start with some cross hatching or something.

        I'm on a PC, and my filter is located in Programs-->Adobe->Photoshop7-->Plugins-->Filters

        I'll bet we can come up with something pretty good on our own... I think.

          Tutorial: Texturizer Filter tricks
          by DannyRaphael
          I’ll bet you’ve probably used the Texturizer filter to add a “canvas” or “burlap” look to an image. I’ll bet you’ve even duplicated an “artsy-looking” layer, applied the Emboss filter to and changed the blend mode of the embossed layer to Overlay to give an image even more depth....

          I have downloaded the eft filters and they seem to be good however since they are demos they cant be applied. The apply buttons are disabled. What is the secret to registering the product to make them fully functional?

          Hi all, I'm looking for advice on how to easily remove the white spots in this photo, as well as the texture of the original photo paper. I have read in other posts about plug-ins and use of programs outside of photoshop, however, for the shop that I work in these are not options...I'm using PS CS4....

          generating repetitive patterns
          by pure

          i asked already a similar question at subforum, they meant...
