How do I install Textures into Photoshop CS5?

Oct 31, 2010 12:40 PM

I just got CS5 and can't figure out how to install textures into it. I am not even seeing a Textures folder. Can anyone provide me with a bit of guidance on this? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    What textures are you talking about? Patterns?

    Go to Filter > Texture > Texturizer and click the drop-down arrow next to the texture name.

     

    You can load any PSD image as a texture from there.

    This is nice. But he is referring to textures folder itself that is available in presets of earlier versions. can anyone suggest why it was removed

    You need to download the cs5 optional plugins from here:

    The previous answers are incorrect and misleading.

     

    The texturizer is still in CS5 and will still load any PSD from your hard drive as a texture.

    John,

     

    I was referring to the texture presets that used to ship with earlier

    versions of photoshop, which are now in the optional plugins download.

     

    Of course your right about the texturizer filter still being in photoshop.

     

    I didn't mean to confuse anyone.

    The original four – brick, burlap, canvas and sandstone are still there.

     

    I understand the others were removed because they didn't look good repeated over the much larger images we deal with today.

    The word 'textures' can mean many things in Photoshop. And since the poster hasn't bothered to specify what type of 'textures' she is talking about, any attempt to answer is guesswork.

    This worked for me: I created a Textures folder in my user presets folder (Users/(name)/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Presets); I moved my desired .PSD textures there.  Then, when I restarted PSCS5, I went to Filters>Texture>Texturize and clicked on the flyout menu next to Texture:.  When prompted to Load Texture ... , I drilled down to that same Textures folder I created under my user name.  The texture won't be added to the standard textures (Brick, Canvass, etc.), but PSCS5 will remember the location you specified to look for textures.

     

    You can do the same thing by creating a Textures folder in the Program Files (x86) (Program Files (x86)/Adobe/ ... etc.) but you'll need Administrator powers for this and for every time you want to add textures.
