Adding Patterns to Your Selection

Recall that when you created the logo in my third tutorial you used Photoshop’s blending options to add a more graphical look and feel to your image. Let’s do the same with our selection. Perform the following:

  1. Right-click on the web header layer and select Blending Options in the submenu that appears.

  2. Check the Drop Shadow, Bevel and Emboss, and Pattern Overlay check boxes.

  3. Left-click once on the Pattern Overlay check box. The right side of the Layer Style dialog box displays Pattern Overlay settings.

  4. Click the right-facing arrow next to the Pattern drop-down field. A submenu displays, filled with thumbnails of preset layer patterns.

  5. Select the right-facing arrow in this submenu. Another submenu displays to the right, which contains more preset patterns.

  6. Select the Rock Patterns preset pattern from the submenu.

  7. A message box displays, asking if you wish to replace the current patterns. Press OK.

  8. Select the Light Marble pattern from the thumbnail submenu. (Hover your mouse over the thumbnail image to view the names of the patterns.)

  9. Press OK in the Layer Style dialog box.

  10. Press Ctrl+D to deselect your selection. Your web header should look like figure below.
