Carbon Fiber Tutorial - Automotive Editing

Carbon Fiber Tutorial
Ever want to add a carbon fiber hood or carbon fiber anything to your car?  View this tutorial for one way of creating this carbon fiber effect to your image.



STEP #1
Make a new document that's 12x6 pixels in size and has a transparent background.
 



STEP #2
Now select the top left corner and fill it diagonally with a black to white gradient. Do the same with the bottom right corner.
 


STEP #3
Now define the pattern you've created.
 


STEP #4
Name the pattern and click ok.
 


STEP #5
Alright. Now that we have that out of the way, we can start on the car. Open your picture and select the part of the vehicle to be carbon fibered.
 


STEP #6
Make a new layer via copy.


STEP #7
Desaturate the newly made layer. 
 


STEP #8
Go to brightness/contrast and darken the layer a bit.
 


STEP #9
Next, go to fill layer.
 


STEP #10
Find the pattern you made earlier and click ok.
 


STEP #11
Rasterize your new fill layer.
 

 

STEP #12
Now go adjust the perspective.
 


STEP #13
Make it so it looks good compared to the angle of your original image.
 


STEP #14
Then give it a little twirl.
 


STEP #15
Now to select just the hood, you hold command and click on the hood layer (You should have 3 layers. The original, the hood layer, and the pattern fill layer. I know in some of these pics I have an extra layer. Disregard that.) The command click is for Macintosh. For PC it might be Alt click or control click.
 


STEP #16
Select inverse.
 


STEP #17
After you've selected the inverse, just press delete. It should look like this afterwards.
 


STEP #18
Now lower the opacity of the fill layer a bit.
 


STEP #19
Ok, now combine the pattern fill layer and the hood layer. Now you should only have 2 layers. The new carbon fiber hood layer and the original image. Lower the opacity of the hood layer a little.
 


DONE!  =)
