Photoshop Brushes – Texture Options

The Texture options in the Brushes panel in Photoshop. Image © 2010 Photoshop Essentials.comSo far in our look at Photoshop’s powerful and amazing Brush Dynamics, we’ve seen how we can dynamically control the size, angle and roundness of our brushes as we paint using the options found in the section of the Brushes panel, and how we can scatter multiple copies of our brush tip along each stroke with the Scattering options.

In this tutorial, we’ll look at the Texture options, which give us the ability to add a texture to our brush, perfect for creating the illusion of painting on a textured surface like paper or canvas, or just for adding more interest to the shape of our brush tip!

To access the Texture options, click directly on the word Texture on the left side of the Brushes panel. Just as with the Shape Dynamics and Scattering sections that we looked at previously, we need to click on the word itself to gain access to the options.The options for the Texture dynamics in the Brushes panel in Photoshop.

Once you’ve clicked on the word Texture, the Texture options will appear on the right side of the Brushes panel. By default, the bottom half of the options are grayed out and unavailable. We’ll see how to enable them a bit later on:

Choosing A Texture

Even though Photoshop calls them Texture options, what you’ll usually be working with here is patterns, and we can use any of the patterns that Photoshop installed for us, as well as any patterns we’ve created ourselves. To choose a pattern, click on the pattern preview thumbnail at the top of the list of options:

This opens the Pattern Picker, which shows small thumbnail previews of all the patterns that are currently loaded into Photoshop. By default, there isn’t much to choose from. That’s because all we see are the patterns that Photoshop initially loads for us, but there are other pattern sets available. To load any of the additional pattern sets that Photoshop comes with, click on the small triangle icon in the top right corner of the Pattern Picker:

Is there a program that converts PHOTOSHOP PATTERNS to paint shop pro?

Okay, so i have paint shop pro, and there isnt very many sites or downloads of patterns for paint shop pro, photoshop has tons and i love them.. but it's not viewable like brushes can be for other programs, if there isn't a program that converts the patterns to paint shop pro, is there at least a way to make it an image pack?

if none of this is making any sense could you just list the best sites with paint shop pro patterns.

please and thanks.
i'm looking for striped, dotted, grid, and spot patterns.

What a great question. I have both Photoshop Elements and PSP X2. I can use a lot of photoshop stuff in PSP but not pattern pat files. I looked everywhere and tried everything with no success. I finally just opened a pat file with Notepad thinking I know enough about most programming codes to remove just the bitmap images from the file. No way.... not only does Adobe use it's own code but it seems to be encrypted. It was really weird looking.

If there's a special pattern you can't find anywhere else, you can have anyone with Photoshop or with Photoshop Elements use it in…
