  • How to create a free dust/spray?

    Dear all,
    Im newbie here and i need you to help me to create a free dust like spraying a dust area in to papper.

    I try some tools PhotoShop or FreeHand, Illutrator, but it is hard to create, i used to use brush and many patterns of brush but it seems the dust is covered not so freely and naturally.

    I created and example,but it is not success as expected much: http://www.nabble.com/file/8286/freedust.jpg

    I think this kind of creation is need scripting or another method.
    So if there is anyone have or used to get same situation, pls give me an advice!

    Thanks and surely give u coffy and cake!

    Create a new layer, fill it black and then do filter -> noise -> add noise. Set the layer's blend mode to screen.

    That will give you white dust. To get black dust, invert the above, and set the blend mode to screen)

    If you don't want the dust to cover the whole image, add a layer mask. Fill the layer mask black, and then paint white or gray onto the layer mask where you want the dust to show.

        Tick the monochromatic box in the add noise filter, and you probably want to lower the value for amount, too.

          you could also work in grayscale. Go in filter- render clouds. Then convert to bitmap with diffusion dither- instant dust-

                The first one just looks like it was done with difference clouds.

                The second one looks like an outer glow that's been set to dissolve mode rather than screen.

                The third one looks like it was drawn. By varying your brush settings inphotoshop, you could produce that pretty quickly.

                  Alternatively:

                  Get out your water colours, water and an old tooth brush or fine bristled brush... Good old kindergarten arts and crafts.

                  Scan the result as a 1200dpi bit map and apply.

                    Or you could use an airbrush or aerosol can to spray the "dust" on a paper. Scan it, and if needed vectorize by tracing it in Illustrator.

                      Fredrich has maybe the best way.
                      USe a real world piece and scan it and Auto Trace if needed. Then overlap and set to different Transparency Modes to create neato-speedo effects.

                          I'm thinking that may be what he was meaning. For posters I really focus on heirarchy. Grids... not so much. Unless it was maybe a series of posters and I wanted them to look similar.

                          As is the case with regard to many types of design decision, right or wrong is really not applicable, but that's not to say one decision won't lead to a better result than another.

                          One way you can work around it (and I always recommend work-arounds as a last step) is to place the PDF into Illustrator. Then go Object>Flatten Transparency and click "Convert All Text To Ou...
