    Create Bump Map from Texture

    Morning!
    I've painted a background I'm going to use in CG. The painting has a nice texture to it - brush strokes etc.
    Is there any way to create a greyscale version of the picture based on the height/texture of the brush strokes (not the RGB of the image)

    Thankyou

    I believe if you merge the image down to a single layer and then use the "Export Layer to Channels" option, found on the main menu tab for the layers panel, you should get the map you're looking for. I've used them for the texture mapping of the Sticker sheets, before.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Brilliant Tip! Thought I was being overly-optimistic, but that's great news.

    Thanks for your help
