Adding Patterns to Your Layers

Photoshop styles are snazzy graphical looks you can apply to your images. Photoshop contains several preset patterns available for your layers, grouped into multiple libraries. Right-click on the Background layer, and select Blending Options from the submenu that appears. You’ll notice the Bevel and Emboss check box already marked from before. Then, perform the following:
  1. Click the Pattern Overlay check box.
  2. Left-click once on the Pattern Overlay text label. The right side of the Layer Style dialog box displays the Pattern Overlay settings.
  3. Click the right-facing arrow next to the Pattern drop-down field. A submenu displays, filled with thumbnails of preset layer patterns.
  4. Select the right-facing arrow in this submenu. Another submenu that contains more preset patterns displays to the right.
  5. Select the Rock Patterns option from the submenu, as shown in figure below.

  6. A message box displays, asking if you wish to replace the current patterns. Press OK.
  7. Select the Light Marble pattern from the thumbnail submenu.

    If you hover your mouse over the thumbnail images, a text label displays. This label allows you to view the names of the different thumbnail images.
  8. Press OK in the Layer Style dialog box. Your logo should now look like figure below.
