Apr 28, 2012 6:40 PM

I am looking for a different methods of creating texture backgrounds such as old ruff solid & parchment backgrounds.

I am trying to duplicate the method I used in Photoshop CS3, have Photoshop CS5, but forgot how to do it.

    I can't remember if this link was aired on these forums or somewhere else, but it sure is a nice resource.

    Lay the texture layer over the background layer, and experiment with layer modes and opacity.

    You can fill a layer with white, black, or medium gray, then apply noise, then place a color adjustment layer over it.

     

    Or you can find images that appear to be the same. This looks like a corkboard to me, so unless there is a reason you must generate the backgrounds, I would look for images that are close in nature, then tile them enough to fill your canvas. A ton of ways to create textured backgrounds.

    Create noise, uncheck Monochromatic, apply Threshold Adjustment layer to make larger chunks, apply color adjustment layer. You can always try and blur the noise a little to soften the edges. Just play with these steps in different order for different effects.
