Please place our definition of texture here. (Example: The surface quality of an object, or how something looks like it would feel.)
In Multimedia, we learned the Elements of Design along with Photoshop. As we explored an element, we learned how that element applied to Photoshop.
The first element we studied was texture, and we learned that texture can be real or implied. Real texture is a surface quality that you can actually touch and feel, while implied texture is 2-dimensional, such as visual texture in drawings and computer artwork.
Many of the textures one can create in Photoshop depend heavily on the use of filters. Photoshop provides many useful filters, from artistic brushstrokes to distortions like spherize.
To the right you see 3 of my favorite textures we learned to make in class.
