Things You'll Need
- Adobe Photoshop, any edition
- PC Windows operating system, XP or newer
Start with a new document. (w)800 x (h)800 pixels is an ideal size, use 150dpi for resolution, and RGB for Mode option. Click OK.
You can use any color you want to fill the canvas, just be sure that the background color is darker than the foreground's on the same tonal scale. This texture use a "dark gray" colored background for this tutorial.
Make a new layer, Layer > New, name this layer "Texture", > OK. Or duplicate this layer, right-click > Duplicate Layer. Fill new layer with a "light gray".
Next, to Layer > Layer Options, with these settings: Opacity (50%), Mode (Normal), > OK. This layer is now semi-translucent, and both colors of the two layers will show.
Create some pattern on the "Texture" layer for our drywall, Filter > Texture > Craquelure. Apply these to the layer: Crack Spacing (44), Crack Depth (3), Crack Brightness (10), > OK.
Still on the "Texture" layer, go to Filter > Brush Strokes > Spatter and apply the following settings: Spray Radius (8), Smoothness (15). Click OK. This creates a more random drywall pattern distribution that appear more natural.
Combine the layers, Layer > Merge All. Save work then we are done with the Photoshop dry wall texture lesson.
