Today we will learn how to use various features in the transform tool (perspective, distort, scale) to add detail to our floor and walls.
How to Add a Texture to Your Floor Using the Perspective Tool
Edit-> Transform -> Scale. Scale your floor so it fills the space below where the floor meets the wall. (This is one time that it is ok not to hold down shift, because distorting the dimensions of the floor texture in this step might actually make it look more realistic later.)
If your floor still feels a bit off, you can adjust individual points by going to Edit -> Transform -> Distort.
You can use these same tools to add texture to the wall.
However, you can scale the image to be the appropriate height (Edit -> Transform -> Scale).
Once again, it may be ok to distort the dimensions of the image in this case.
Then duplicate the layer (Layer -> Duplicate Layer).
Flip the image so you will have a seamless tile (Edit -> Transform -> Flip Horizontal) and move the image so it connects with your other layer.
Further uses for the perspective/distort tools:
- make a poster, framed picture, or mirror look like it is hanging on one of the side walls
- add windows to one of the side walls
Today we will:
- begin dragging images into our room and using the perspective and distort tools to make them look like they realistically belong in the room
- save our image as a PNG and create a new blog post with our progress
