So after quite a few people asked me how to make textures, I have attempted to do a video tutorial on how to apply a texture to an image. I am going to post, but you need to be warned it isn’t very good. My computer did not behave and Photoshop wouldn’t work properly. I don’t know what the issue was, but hopefully you will get the general idea that the trick to using textures is all about blending.
I hope you can work it out, but remember that the library of textures is growing at Public Domain Textures, and you also see some work by people who have used some textures from the site. So if you want your work shown, put a link to the texture you used so we get a pingback.
As I said the video isn’t great, a few problems there, I am also not sure about the quality, I tried to get as good as possible.
