This effect works equally well on text and black on white graphics. Open your Type Tool and Type Picker. Pick a font. We’ll adjust its size after we type out the text. The aliasing is Smooth and I’ll choose center alignment. The color is irrelevant, since we won’t be filling our text with color. Click on the document and type out your text. If you have multiple lines and want to make a portion of your text bigger or smaller, highlight the text and drag the size scrubby slider icon to the right or left.
To adjust the space between all the lines, known as “leading”, highlight all of your text and open the Character panel by going to Window and Character. I keep the panel docked for easy access. Drag the Leading scrubby slider icon to the left or right. To adjust the spacing between all the characters, known as “Tracking”, you can drag the Tracking scrubby slider icon or press and hold Alt or Option as you press the left or right arrow key on your keyboard.
To adjust its overall size, click the Move Tool and press Ctrl or Cmd + T to open your Transform Tool. Go to a corner. If you’re using a version earlier than CC 2019, press and hold Alt or Option + Shift as you drag in or out. New Year 2021 Editing
If you’re using an earlier version, just press Alt or Option as you drag it. Then press Enter or Return. To center it, press Ctrl of Cmd + A to select the enter document and click the Align Horizontal Centers icon and the Align Vertical Centers icon. New Year 2021 Editing
Then, deselect it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd +D. We can close the Character panel now. If you want to use a black and white graphic, unlock it and open your Channels panel. If you don’t see it, go to Window and Channels. Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the thumbnail of any of the channels to make a selection of the shapes of your graphic. New Year 2021 Editing
Open back the Layers Panel and press the “Delete” key on your keyboard to delete the white background leaving the black shapes intact. Then, deselect it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + D. Place it onto the fabric texture and resize it. New Year 2021 Editing
The next steps are exactly the same as if you were using text. We’ll convert our text or graphic into a Smart Object, so we can modify it non-destructively, as well as allow us to replace it with other text or graphics without having to redo the Layer Style effects that we’ll be adding to it. New Year 2021 Editing
Click the icon at the upper, right of the Layers Panel and click “Convert to Smart Object”. Reduce its Fill to 0%. This removes its color completely, but it’ll retain the full visibility of the effects we add to it. New Year 2021 Editing
Double-click an empty area of the layer to open its Layer Style window. Click “Bevel & Emboss”. The Style is “Pillow Emboss”, the Technique is “Smooth” and the Depth is 500%. The Direction is “Up”, the Size is 15 pixels and soften it 6 pixels. Check “Use Global Light”. The Angle is 120 degrees and the Altitude is 30 degrees. The Gloss Contour is Linear. The Highlight Mode is “Color Dodge”, the color is white and the Opacity is 50%. The Shadow Mode is “Linear Burn”, the color is black and its opacity is 17%.
Click the New Layer icon to make a new layer. In this layer we’ll create the stiches of thread that will surround each shape. Let’s name it, “Stitches”. Since we want the stitches to be initially white in color, our foreground color should be white. If it’s not white, press “D” to make your foreground and background colors default to black and white, respectively and then click this icon to reverse them or you can press “x” on your keyboard. Open your Pencil Tool and Pencil Picker. As I mentioned earlier, I provided this set of custom stitch brushes that you can download.
After you install it into Photoshop’s Brush Pre-sets, scroll down the panel If you don’t see the stitch set at the bottom, clicks the gear icon and click “Import Brushes”. The name of the stiches is, “stitch by buying paw”. Click it and click “Load”. Since I already installed it, I’ll click “Cancel”. Open its folder and scroll down to see the stitches. I like this one the best for this effect.
It’s the one right after the stitch that looks like two horizontal shapes. Click it and press Enter or Return Press the F5 key at the top of your keyboard to open your Brush Settings panel You could also go to Window and Brush Settings. Open Brush Tip Shape Make its Size: 3 pixels and the Spacing: 350% Click “Shape Dynamics” All the “Jitter” setting amounts are 0% The Size Jitter control is off, as well as the Roundness Jitter, however, the Angle Jitter control should be set to “Direction”.
This will make the stitches follow the direction along the edges of our graphics or text We can close the panel now Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the thumbnail of your text or graphic to make a selection of it Open your Paths panel If you don’t see it, go to Window and Paths. Click the icon to open the fly-out list and click, “Make Work Path”.
When you see this window, keep its default Tolerance: 0.5 pixels. Open the fly-out list again and click, “Stroke Path” When you see this window, choose “Pencil” for the tool and make sure “Simulate Pressure” is not checked hide the paths, click anywhere on the Paths panel under the work path or press Ctrl or Cmd + H blend the stitches into your pillow, open back the Layers panel and change its Blend Mode to Soft Light.
To change it color, click the Adjustment Layer icon and click “Hue/Saturation”. Check “Colorize” and drag the Hue slider to a color you like. Slide the Saturation to increase the color’s intensity. If the highlights and/or shadows of the emboss are too intense or too weak on the color you chose, double-click “Bevel & Emboss” to open it in the Layer Style window.
Adjust the opacities of the highlight and shadows. To increase your image’s color vibrancy, make the top layer active and click the Adjustment Layer icon again. Click “Vibrancy”. Drag the vibrancy slider to the right.
