How to Use Textures in your Design

Textures are a great way to add depth and a tactile feel to your design. Here are some of the ways you can use them in your designs in Photoshop:

1. Use Textures as Backgrounds in your Design

You can use subtle textures such as recycled paper patterns listed above to add visual interest to your background. These background textures help put focus on foreground elements such as text, logo and buttons when you are designing a website, Instagram post, promotional banner or poster.

Additionally, in place of using the whole texture image, parts of it can be clipped to shapes and blobs for creating interesting collages and background compositions.

2. Create Textured Typography

Textures can be used to easily create a range of text effects in Photoshop. One such example would be clipping the gold foil texture (mentioned at the top of above collection) to text layer for a quick gold text effect.

3. Overlay Over Images

Textures are an asset when it comes to photo manipulation. You can overlay concrete and grungy photocopy textures, both included in this roundup, over an image to produce distressed effect in Photoshop.

Textures can bring life to any design, they are an incredibly useful and versatile design resource. Good thing with these textures is that they are available for free download as JPG files which are a common image format format and are widely supported in graphic design tools and can be used not only in Photoshop but also in Canva and Affinity as well.
