Realistic Wood Texture in Photoshop

In this section we will introduce you how to create realistic wood texture in Photoshop.

We already introduced wood texture in Modern wood grain design made on Illustrator and Create Wood Texture in Photoshop, wood texture is useful in various occasions.

The gurges in the texture make it look even more realistic.

This might look difficult but it is actually very easy to do.

Step01 Create New File

Create a new file sized 800 x 600.

Next, set the color.

Draw color<#b05e07>, background color<#582b02>.

Step02 Use Fiber

Use fiber to be the wood base.

Go to [Filter > Draw > Fiber] and set the numeral.

Apply Fiber

Fiber is applied.

The color and numerals are different but we have a similar wood texture we saw in Create Wood Texture in Photoshop.

Step03 Use Blur Effect

Use Blur Effect for smooth wood texture.

Set the numerals using the example above in [Filter > Blue > Blur (Move)].

Apply Blur Effect

It looked rough in Step02, now it looks smooth.

Step04 Sharpen the Texture

Give some texture on the smoothened wood texture.

Set the numerals above in [Filter > Sharp > Smart Sharp].

Apply Smart Sharp

By Applying <Smart Sharp>, the texture is now rougher than Step03 and smoother than Step02.

Step05 Apply Gorges

Apply gorges on the straight wood texture.

Select the top left with a rectangle like the example above.

Set using the example above in [Filter > Transform > Swirl] to apply gorges.

Places to Add Gorges

We will apply gorges to all the selected parts on the image above.

Follow the same step with the same settings in Step05.

The section size can be random, however, different sized gorges make it more realistic. Make sure your selections are in different sizes.

Apply Swirl

Swirl is applied on the selected parts.

It already looks pretty realistic and one more step can make it even more realistic.

We are almost there.

Step06 Transform by Pinch

We apply different gorges from <Swirl>.

Set the numerals above in [Filter > Transform > Pinch] and modify the straight texture by pinching.

Places to Pinch

Apply Pinch Effect on the selected parts above.

Follow the same step in Step06 with the same settings.

Both selection sizes of the <Pinch> and <Swirl> can be rough but different sized modification makes it look more realistic. Make sure to do so.

Done!

Done!

Adding <Pinch> effect brings more realism to the texture than just having <Swirl Effect>. This is a very small thing but gives a totally different impression.

The gorged texture looks difficult at first sight but it was actually very easy to make. Next time change the color, selected parts, and numerals to make your own wood texture.
