    Tutorial: How to Create & Apply Texture with Papers

    (UPDATE: I created a tutorial on using textures with a gel layer! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=127825 )

    Step 0
    Open Your paper pallete

    Step 1
    First find a Texture you would like to include in your art and then open it in painter. Also make sure you have Use our wiki to find texture resources. Click Here for Wiki

    Step 2
    Secondly select the entire canvas of the texture(make sure you are on the correct layer).

    Step 4
    Name your File then Adjust the Crossfade. The Cross fade is how the Pattern will mesh when the paper overlaps its edges in large canvas.

    Step 5
    Select the small thumbnail to cycle through the list of collected papers.

    Step 6
    Select a brush with the option for GRAIN, not all brushes have this option. The lower the GRAIN option is, the higher "roughness" of the grain will show against your brush strokes.

    The sliders in the Paper Palette are:
    Paper Size
    Paper Contrast
    Paper Value

    Try playing with these sliders to experiment with different effects.

    Step 7
    Here is a list of brush types that have the GRAIN option. Other categories have brushes options such as the brush in the PHOTO category called ADD GRAIN, i personally shy away from this brush since its a little unwieldy to control.

    Step 8

    i found out another pretty basic, but very helpful tip with textures.

    if you want to use the "add grain" brush on a transparent layer:

    Open a new layer,
    Set method to GEL
    Fill entire layer with WHITE
    Then you can use the brush.

    i noticed something while making some new paper textures.
    it seems to fail to capture certain things i want to capture.
    i select the whole thing, then click to capture, name it, then try to save it.
    then it tells me "unable to save"

    are there certain limitations?

    I'm wondering if it's possible to move this paper texture around.
    Let's say for instance you have a spot in the texture that bothers you so you want to move it so you can put a more even part of the texture down.
    Is this possible?

    Yes it is, you can even scale it, change brightness and contrast, just go to the Papers panel and adjust.

    But i couldn't find any way to movie it
    I know you can change the contrast, invert it even magnify it
    in the Papers panel but i couldn't find any way to move it.
    I've seen that you can drag the paper around in the paper panel but it doesn't seem to have any effect at all on the painting when i try the brush again.
    So i'm a bit stuck

    If you look at Davi's image you'll see 3 sliders on the paper's palette.

    The first is Scale.
    The other two adjust the brightness and contrast.

    From the Manual (Painter 11)

    By default, paper grain is fixed, which means that the texture
    is in the same position each time you apply a brushstroke.
    You can change this setting if you want grain to be applied
    randomly.

    You can also change the look of brushstrokes by having the
    paper grain interact with stroke direction. This option works
    best when you paint with a stylus and use certain papers and
    brushes.

    When you find a brush and paper combination that you
    really like, you can save it as a new look in the Look Selector.
    To randomize paper grain

    1 Choose Window menu -> Brush Creator.
    2 Click the Stroke Designer tab, and choose Random.
    3 Enable the Random Brush Stroke Grain option.
    The Random Brush Stroke Grain option is not
    available for all brushes.
    To enable directional paper grain
    1 Choose Window menu -> Library Palettes -> Papers.
    2 Click the Directional Grain button .

    Factors such as stylus pressure, paper, and brush
    variant affect the appearance of brushstrokes when
    the Directional Grain option is enabled. Papers with
    pronounced grain, such as Wood Grain and Gessoed
    Canvas, produce the best results.

    Inverting and Scaling Paper Textures

    Paper texture can be visualized as a three-dimensional
    landscape. Ordinarily, brushes react to paper texture by
    coloring the peaks and ignoring the valleys. You can enable
    the Invert Paper option to make color fill the valleys instead
    of the peaks. You can also adjust the paper texture scale to
    resize the paper texture. Scaling the paper grain affects how
    the grain appears in brushstrokes and images.
    To invert paper grain
    1 Choose Window menu -> Library Palettes -> Papers.
    2 On the Papers palette, do one of the following:
    • Click the palette menu arrow, and choose Invert
    Paper.
    • Click the Invert Paper button .
    You can also use the Paper Selector in the toolbox to
    invert paper grain. Click the Paper Selector, click the
    selector menu arrow, and choose Invert Paper.

    To change the paper texture scale
    1 Choose Window menu -> Library Palettes -> Papers.
    2 On the Papers palette, use the Paper Scale slider to resize
    the paper grain.
    As you move the slider, the Paper Preview Window
    updates to display the new grain size. You can scale
    texture down to 25% or up to 400%.
    Scaling large textures can use a great deal of RAM.
    Most textures in Corel Painter range from 50 to 400
    pixels square at 100% scaling.

    But i don't want to scale it, or adjust the contrast
    I just want to move it up/down or left/right

    Let me re-explain what i mean
    If you look at Davi's image you will see that at the lower left corner the intensity of the dots is a lot higher than in the upper right corner.
    And suppose you wish to paint those less intense dots that are in the upper right corner, in the lower left corner of the painting.
    Is it possible to move the texture so you can achieve this? (without any rescaling)


    EDIT:
    After reading edited Arshes's post

    i've tried the Random Brush Stroke Grain and Directional Grain with no luck sadly
    (i've already tried all the other stuff before)
    This is the result


    I guess it's not possible for what i am looking for, but thank you for helping anyway

    Ok, how about selecting what you have and just moving it to another layer instead? Maybe try saving as a pattern instead or nozzle?
