How To Create a Realistic Money Effect in Photoshop


The classic illustration style used on money is something I’ve always wanted to figure out how to replicate in Photoshop. There’s plenty of Photoshop tutorials that show how to create a basic halftone line effect, but they never quite capture that authentic engraved look with plenty of shading and tone. After lots of trial and error I finally managed to figure it out, so here’s an in depth tutorial on how to create a realistic money illustration effect in Photoshop (with some help from Illustrator!).

The effect we’ll be creating in today’s tutorial is this vintage engraved or etched illustration style that builds up the tonal areas of an image with lots of tiny lines. Unlike the basic halftone line effect used in other tutorials, this method actually uses curved and wavy lines that vary in weight to produce an accurate replica of this classic illustration technique.

Before we can add the effect to a photograph we first need to build a range of ‘screens’ which will then be layered up over our chosen image to produce the carved illustration effect. Photoshop can certainly be used here, but Illustrator makes this job much easier. Create a new Illustrator document and draw a straight line on the artboard. Adjust it with no fill and a 1pt black stroke, then head to Effect > Distort & Transform > Zig Zag.

Enter 4mm in the Size option and apply 11 ridges in the settings. Select the Smooth option to create a wavy line.

Hold the ALT and Shift keys and drag a duplicate of the wavy line vertically down the artboard then with both lines selected go to Object > Blend > Make.

Head back to Object > Blend > Blend Options to configure the settings.

Take a copy of the blended lines then open a new document in Photoshop and paste them in. Choose Pixels as the Paste method.

Switch back over to Illustrator and change the stroke weight to 2pt. Take a copy of this updated element and paste it onto a new layer in the Photoshop document.

Repeat the process of increasing the line weight by 1pt then pasting the heavier version on a new layer. Do this for 3pt, 4pt, 5pt and finally 6pt lines.

In photoshop, keep selecting all the background until you have all of you want to be transparent...Try deleting background and see if the underlying backgroundis already transparent. (If your final image is easy to select, select it directly.). If initially selecting the BACKGROUND, and you need to get a transparent bckgrnd, inverse the selection so the main subject is selected. You may already have a Transparent background (you'll see the checkerboard).
If you don't already have an underlying transparent background, Copy the selected imaged.

Photoshop Tutorial request (painted wall texture)?

I am relatively new to PS so this may be a very simple thing to accomplish but I would like to know how to do this. I am looking for a way to make this http://www.photos-public-domain.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/mauve-p ainted-wall-texture.jpg

However from scratch in photoshop, not using another image. I want it to be as realistic as possible. I have found some tutorials however the ones I saw just do not result in a product to my liking.

Thanks

Why?

The texture is a photograph, most people take their own texture photos.
I don't understand why you are trying to recreate a photograph from scratch, especially when you are new to photoshop.

It would be very difficult to recreate, I would advise deleting a portion and trying to paint/clone the section back. To practice
