About This Class


In this class you'll learn how to turn your lettering into chalk art in Photoshop. The texture is built completely inside of Photoshop - no chalk required. Once you build the effect, you can easily swap out new artwork and even add and change colors. It's a super easy and fun way to add some texture to your designs and even bring new life to old work.

great class, very useful
Super realistic and beautiful effect! The instruction is clear and easy to follow. And for someone who hasn't used Photoshop since the first Creative Suite, it's a great way to practice working with filter galleries and smart objects again!
