    Grain parameters - are there any?

    I like the grain feature for surface. Where can I read up on how to use this feature in detail?

    eg. is there a max size? Does it all have to be tiled into a pattern or can I have one huge image for tooth that covers the whole picture?

    What's a good value for tooth -- 10 percent gray?

    And once loaded, can I mess with the parameters, making the relief of the tooth deeper by darkening it?

    The tool for selecting paper grain is great. But I want to experiment. Right now I'm looking at creating an interesting tooth for paper and/or a long gesso stroke canvas prep look.

    Hi. DAkey.

    I'm not sure to i understand your question right but i tell you one process how can make grain?

    First i import, that drawed image or photo, what i want to use grain image.

    Then i fixet it that final size what i want to be at final image size.
    This fixing-process can need few export-import layer png dones before final grain-image is ready.

    Then i export that image to grain-image.

    Now i open old or new drawing and set paper-settings to grain that grain-image.

    Hope this give some idea to you.

    Thanks for the responses. ''

    Very helpful, Heikki.

    Fashmir, doing searches for the keyword 'grain' didn't turn up that link. 'Paper' was the word.

    Anyway, it's a really cool feature and I can see lots of uses for going crazy.

    I look forward to using my digital camera as a grain maker now as well. Asphalt, granite, and spider webs, package labels and lots of other possibilities. I can't wait to try them out.

    Even grass clippings, like you said in another post, Fashmir. That doesn't sound too bad as a texture. Might give a ratty, woven sort of surface.
