Useful Textures/patterns In Photoshop Do you know how to make them?

Recommended Posts

These are all really basic patterns, but a lot of people still don't know how to make them. They can be quite useful, which is why I'm showing you here how to do them:


1) For each new pattern you want to make, open a new document. It should be 3x3 pixels and transparent.


2) Grab the pencil tool and set it to 1 pixel. Then pick the colour you want to use. (I'm using black)


3) Zoom in real close and start adding some dots. Here's some examples of how you can make them:

4) Now, with each pattern you have made, go Edit -> Define Pattern and save it there. After that, they are all ready for use.


5) Open the image where you would like to add some texture.


6) Create a new layer in your image.


7) Now go to Edit -> Fill, and select your pattern there.


8) Set the opacity to 20% if you think that looks better.


That's it! You're done!


Here are the results of the patterns I made: (100% opacity)
