Imitate Screen-Printing Grain with a Non-Destructive Smart Effect in Adobe Photoshop.

This effect creates a striking graphic look which can be really handy when designing prints, posters or giving the same flavour to the collection of images. Also this technique can be used to prepare your images for real-life screen printing as an alternative method to halftone patterns.


With this effect you can stylise:

  • found images,
  • pencil drawings,
  • digital art with gradients and shading,
  • photographs.

Everything in this class deals with non-destructive smart filters and adjustments, so once you have built the effect, you can easily apply it to any other images with just a little bit of tweaking!


In this class you will learn:

  • how to build screen-printing grain effect in Adobe Photoshop;
  • how to quickly apply it to other images;
  • how to adjust the effect to work well with different types of images;
  • how to colour images with this effect;
  • how to create multicolour compositions (new content in the 2019 update);
  • how to scale your work to create or maintain the desired look (new content in the 2019 update).


I cannot wait to see what you create in this class, join in and share your work!

* This technique can be used in Adobe Photoshop CC versions. It should also work fine in CS6, though it would require a work-around for smart adjustments.
