    Messing around with texturizing and displacement maps

    perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
    everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

    That's Nice. Did you use a displacement map on your text? It looks like you did. It's amazing what a displacement map can do.

    The displayment map was used on the text and the shadow of the cross. Also I used the cloud and difference clouds, lighting effects and channels to create the rock textures from scratch. I found a realy good tutorial on this at

    It quick and once you've done it a couple of times the process is easy to remember.

    What is NAPP? I just started using Photoshop about 4 or 5 months ago. I need to learn so that I could do my own graphics for some web pages that I support (www.stpetersjax.org). It has been a fun learning process. I'm trying to learn to paint using photoshop. I getting better at landscapes from scratch mostly oceans and mountain scenes. I found it really difficult to create realistic looking water so I'm starting with large bodies and working my way down.

    NAPP = National Association of Photoshop Professionals
    The name is deceiving. Membership is open to anyone. The cost of membership is $99/yr and worth every penny. Membership gives you access to their site and 7 issues of Photoshop User magazine. Either one would be worth membership price alone. On their site you'll find a few hundred tutorials, reviews of products, discounts, a forum where some pretty sharp users can help you through a problem to mention a few. The magazine is an excellent resource for learning with How-to's, tutorials, reviews.

    As a member you get a sharp discount on Layers magazine, about $20/yr. Again, worth every penny.

    I've been a member for quite a while and wouldn't dream of dropping my membership.
