Tutorial – Photoshop Basics PT4 – Patterns & Textures

This tutorial covers adding pattern images and textures to your drawing in order to create a sense of depth and detail it would otherwise lack. Different methods include non-seamless patterning using ‘paste into’ or layer masking, and seamless patterning using the ‘pattern overlay’ layer style. Tutorial also covers how to create custom pattern presets using seamless texture images that can be saved and reused over and over again.
