Guide: Making Textures

By Sanami276
This is a guide on one way to make textures.
Written for Photoshop CS, but shoud be translatable to most programs.

Feel free to ask any questions.

The brushes and patterns I used are available here: [link] (includes .abr, .pat and imagepacks).

saving for reference later, thanks for taking the time to make this guide!
This is incredibly awesome! I've had issues with texture-making myself, but I love the ideas here for getting started (& experimentation is the key to all great art!) Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration.

Hello. I was wondering if you could help me understand something. In your step 2 you say to create a new layer and render clouds. But when I create a new layer then go to Filter>Render it will not let me select it. It's not "highlighted" if you know what I mean.
This happens to me all the time. The only time all of the filter options are available to click on is when I open a new image. Once I create a layer on it, I cannot access all filters.

Thanks for any tips! :)

Very good job. I'm sure this tutorial will be helpful to many people!
Just keep in mind that some brush creators do not want their brushes used in textures or anything of the like.

Thank you!
I know that some brush creators don't like that, that's why I use mostly my own or those of a friend who allows it.
