Photoshop Textures and Texture Extension

Twycross Zoo_OrangutansIn this Photoshop tutorial video, I demonstrate how to find and install the Paper Texture Extension and then use it to add more atmosphere to an otherwise plain image.

If you’d like to follow along you can download the orangutans.jpg image here.


NB: In this video I’ve already installed Adobe Exchange Panel Preview. The installation of this is as straight forwawd as the Paper Textures, sorry for any confusion.

    Thank you for your great and helpful tutorials 🙂
    Since I’m using an older version of Photoshop,is there a way I can download only the textures you are using, without the Exchange Panel Preview ?
    Thank you.

  2. Not these exact textures but there are lots of sites out there with all manner of textures. Download them and drag and drop them on to your image 🙂

  3. What happened to the sound? When I first began to view, I paused to download the suggested file and then no more sound. Other web pages have sound

  4. Sorry that you’re having problems Dan. All seems fine. No one else has mentioned a problem.
