Last week, my wife and I had a little household dispute. As a result, she took her dog and went back to her home town in Kansas. I was totally upset, staying in an empty house by myself. I decided to work on one of the bathrooms, replacing floor tiles. Hopefully, she will realize how reliable I am as the home improvement guy of the household. I started out okay, but I gradually got tired. I started to think that there was perhaps an easier way of replacing bathroom tiles. Hmm… Oh, yes, Adobe Photoshop! So I went to my work room, starting up my iMac and launching Photoshop CS2. In a matter of 3 minutes or so, I replaced floor tiles in the bathroom.
It’s been several days since she left. So the question is when is she coming back? Or is she ever coming back?
The following tutorial shows steps to design floor tiles, using Adobe Photoshop CS2. The photo image used in this tutorial comes from Webshots.
- At first, make a selection of the floor.
- Unlock the only layer and create a new one. Then press the delete key on the unlocked background layer while the selection is active.
- Fill the layer you have created with 50% Gray.
- Apply to the layer Texture > Patchwork.
- Distort the tile layer with Free Transform.
- Colorize the tiles with Hue/Saturation.
