Creating Green Textures with Photoshop

Postby ILL-Patch guy on Wed Nov 14, 2012 1:06 am

Hey everyone,
In this tutorial I will explain how to create green textures with Photoshop.
This is good for cyberfaces, balls and etc...

First step:
Open your texture in Photoshop:
Image

Second step:
In your Photoshop go to Filter > NIVIDIA Tools > NormalMapFilter.
Now a window will pop up for you and just press OK (don't change anything), and your texture should look now like that:
Image

Third step:
1.Go the Channels and copy the "Green channel" and paste it on the Alpha channel (Alpha 1).
2.Copy the "Red channel" and paste it on the "Green channel".
3.Make the "Red channel" and the "Blue channel" completely black.

Now it should look like this:
Image

That's it!

Enjoy :)

Did you made the alpha channel of this green texture right? check it out. If that won't solve this, check out your alpha channel in the regular texture

Go to the channels -> Click on the red channel -> press ctrl + a on your keyboard -> press ctrl + c on your key board to copy the channel -> click on the green channel -> click ctrl + v to paste the channel you copied before on the red channel.

Hopes it helped you, if not please write :)

you need to go to chanels, and copy the grey layer (usually green or red chanel) into the alpha layer.
