How To Question Regarding Displacement

Recommended Posts


I've been using PDN for about 9 months now and have really enjoyed it.

I have a quick question and I was hoping someone could help me out.

I would like to put on logo on a brick wall and make it look like it is painted on. I searched through the forums and found one tutorial but it only used color burn and didn't give the desired effect. I think I need to use displacement but am not sure how to use it to get the effect I am looking for. I tried looking at the flag tutorial that goes along with it but I can't traslate it into my situation.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks. I had downloaded that but I'm still not sure what I'm doing even with these steps:

Run the plugin on top layer, use Image A as "mask"

Adjust setting in plugin.

See letters change.

My bottom layer is my brick wall, top layer is the logo (background removed w/ magic wand) and then I use the wall as the mask as well. It just kind of distorts the logo and doesnt look like its on the wall. I'm trying for a look like sample 2 in the plugin thread. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Theres a texture plugin I found that I may try but apparently I need to download something else to make it run.
