Using Texture

Your Options:


Opacity:

Free Transform: crtl+T


Blends:


Adjustments:


All these will help with your texturing :DDD



Basics: (text direction)
-Apply Texture
-If possible use Free Transform to move text around (Edit>Free transform OR ctrl+T)
-Play around with the blends (I suggest Luminosity, Overlay, Lighten, Screen, Multiply, and others work as well)
-Play around with the Adjustments (I suggest Vibrance, Exposure, Brightness/Contrast, and others work as well)
-Opacity can be used to simmer down on the texture or blends

Picture Direction:

Tips on Making a avatar


Making a avatar is fairly easy. Its all about doing the right collages that make it flow together. On the way of doing that you will make up someone unique tricks in it to seem "Pro" looking. Like styling it with rounded edges or adding frames to the graphic. So many unique tricks can be used when making a avatar. Now here is some tips for you to make a "decent" avatar.

-Avatar must be in these sizes: 200x400, 200x500(or 550), 200x600, or 200x700
-NEVER over decorate
-Texture use wisely
-Be unique
-Save as PNG
-Collage must flow together



Sample of a BAD avatar:

This is a bad avatar because the way the quality looks and how poorly the texture is used. The decoration was over loaded in the avatar and you can't hardly see the text used in it. QUALITY OF THE AVATAR IS VERY IMPORTANT! The style of the avi depends on it. The only good thing about the avatar is that the color scheme matches, but thats it.





Sample of a GOOD AVATAR:
Credits to rightful owner.

Now you see how the quality of this avatar is much better. The text is a bit simple in it but it goes with the "style" of the avatar. The avatar is not overloaded with decoration or glitter it's like it has its own personality. The texture was used right. Therefor, this avatar is a good sample if its simple yet "pro" looking avatar ^^
