Photoshop Tutorial

Brushed Metal
Skill level: Duration: Requirements: Goal: Novice 2 minutes Photoshop version 5 or higher To produce a brushed metal texture

Stage 01.
Start by creating a new document any size. For this tutorial, I have made my document 250 x 350 at 72dpi. Fill the document with a light grey colour using the Paint Bucket tool. The grey I used has the hex value C3C3C3.

Now add some noise to the image by going to the Filter menu and selecting Noise, and then Add Noise. Check the Gaussian button and check the Monochromatic box. I used a value of 10%, but you can deviate if you wish. Click OK when you are done.

Stage 02.
Go to the Filter menu again and select Blur, and then Motion Bur. Set the Angle to 0 and the distance to 20. Click OK when you are done.

Stage 03.
Go to the Filter menu again, and select Render, and then Lighting Effects. From the Light Type selection box, select Spotlight. Change the light colour to white (shown circled below in Green). Drag the light source (shown circled here in white) and place it in the upper left corner. You can also drag any of the other resize handles until it closely resembles something close to this  Now change the Intensity to 56, the Ambience to 21 and the Gloss to -100 Leave all the other values set to “0”. Click OK when you are done, and you will be left with a brushed metal finish that looks something like this:
