Image burned in Wood in Photoshop

Posted on 24th July 2019
For this tutorial, you will need some Wood Textures for the Background and an image to burn into the wood, we used a vectorized quote from Designbundles.net (https://designbundles.net/free-design-resources/always-be-kind).

1 - In Photoshop, open the “Wood Texture” you chose.



2 - Open the window where the image you want to add to the wood is saved and drag it onto your original file. Resize it to fit your document and click “Enter” or the small “Check box” on the Top Menu.





3 - Hide your “Quote Layer” and create a “New Layer” on top of everything (click on the small button at the bottom of the “Layers Panel”). Go to Edit > Fill… (Shift + F5), choose “White” as “Contents” and click “OK”.







4 - With your Top Layer still selected, click on top of the “Quote Layer” Thumbnail while holding the “Command/Control” key to make a selection of the text. Go to Select > Modify > Expand… and use a 15 Pixels value.







5 - Fill your selection with Black or “Foreground” Color (Alt/Option + Delete), “Deselect” (Command/Control + D) and then, “Invert” your image (Command/Control + I) to make the text white and the background black.







6 - Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur… and use a 7 Pixel “Radius”.





7 - Go to Filter > Stylize > Wind… choose “Wind” as “Method” and “From the Left” as “Direction” and click “OK”. Repeat the Filter, but this time use “From the Right”. Invert” your image (Command/Control + I) back to make the text black and the background white again.













8 - Go to Image > Adjustment > Levels… (Command/Control + L) and change the “Black Input Level” (bottom-left) to 70 to make your text a dark grey. Change the “Blending Mode” to “Color Burn” and lower the “Opacity” to 65%.







9 - Create a “New Layer” on top of everything (click on the small button at the bottom of the “Layers Panel”). Control-click the layer immediately underneath to make a selection.





10 - Go to Select > Modify > Feather… (Shift + F5) and use a “Feather Radius” of 3 pixels and fill your selection with Black or “Foreground” Color (Alt/Option + Delete).







11 - Double-click on your new layer thumbnail to apply the following “Layer Styles”:

Blending Options: (Fill Opacity: 40%)



Bevel & Emboss: (Gloss Contour: Ring - Double)



Inner Shadow: (Contour: Sawtooth 1)





12 - Check out your Artwork!
