    How do I create these shadows that mimic depth/indentation?

    How do I create these shadows that give depth and dimensions?? This is a blanket texture that was extracted and you can see all the soft dark areas that give depth. So sorry if my English is not clear, I am not good with this language.

    What am I doing wrong here? Bad composite attempt

    Thank you Thank you so much for the encouragement, i was really really upset lol. Actually I decided to trash the photo, there was just no saving it. I just restored the old background and tweaked it a tiny bit. I am such a photoshop noob lol.

    What am I doing wrong here? Bad composite attempt

    Ok yeah that's what I thought...i am so upset...there is just no way i can go back and remove the background as i accidentally merged the layers and saved it.

    Is it possible to isolate all colors except the black colors on this pattern?

    First off, I just want to thank you for taking a look at this. I'm not great with photoshop (I can only use the paint tool)... how can I turn the brown areas pure white and only leave the black words and lines? I tried to use the paint tool to "paint" the brown areas white but it takes hours...

    Is this possible?

    I'm wondering what this method is called, taking a photo such as that on the left and turning it grey-ish like the right. I am not looking to make it desaturated. The one on the right allows you to recolor the photo with different hues. Thanks for all your help! Edit: I found out this is...

    Patterns are blurry when reduced?

    Oh bless you good people! Thank you! Edit: I like to create pretty wallpaper patterns for my desktop, I usually go into Layer> New Fill Layer > Pattern... Sometimes the patterns would be too big...or it is vertical when I want it horizontal. So I have to go through the whole process of flatten...
