The Ultimate Wood Texture Tutorial


Step Eight

Turn on the backup layer. In the Channels Palette, duplicate the red channel by dragging it to the New Channel button at the bottom of the palette. Invert the new alpha channel by selecting all (Cmd/Ctrl+A) and inverting (Cmd/Ctrl+I). Now you can delete the backup layer from the Layers Palette since we have a copy saved as an alpha channel. Go Select>Load Selection and choose red copy. Make a new Curve adjustment layer and darken the image slightly like so:

Step Nine

Step Ten

Duplicate the wood layer and bring the opacity down to 20% on the new one. Go Filter>Blur>Motion Blur. Apply an h3 blur at an angle of 90 degrees and a distance of 70. This just adds another subtle layer of texture.
