Grain Notes

Grains are great for glass and metallic effects. Use in the glass distortion effect (found in effects > focus category). Modify the softness, variance, direction, and glass mode. Fade / re-apply and more.

Superb for 3D applications as bump maps and texture maps

Use the paper grains as sources for new grains

Use the grains as a source for pattern 'original luminance'

Effects > 'Applied Surface texture' Subtle shifts or different color combos and shine settings can be used to create a wide variety of weird line, wobbly, blobbed, metallic, ... 1000s of different wonderful color bump surfaces.

Or select a grain brush or use the grain in impasto or use in watercolors or with digital ink.

Use grains in express texture command to create stunning black and white imagery. After apply a texture and express texture, use a blur or circular blur or even use the excellent (if not slightly slower) depth of field filter applied to the texture. Use a color fill to add some color or the color overlay

'Apply Screen' uses the paper grain in Painter (and grainy pap files) to excellent effect. Use to create superb screened effects. Modify the various thresholds and color settings to create a wide range of weird and wonderful flat color screens (great for web design) or blur or use the depth of field filter afterwards. The 'apply screen' can be used to create a variety of different different screens, even by simply modifying the scaling or contrast of the screen/grain

Use the paper grains in the Painter distress plugin. 'Distress' plugin uses the grain and offers a wide selection of edge, edge amount, smoothing, variance and threshold settings to create stunning grain infused image effects. Superb for stunning black and white images and screened effects.

Use grains via clone / patterns and clone source in dynamic floater 'liquid metal' (as well as glass distortion floater to layers and text..)

The textures can also be easily added to the patterns libraries. Just create a file to the original proportions of the grain and then use the express texture or other command and apply and save the texture or use the define pattern in the pattern palette.

'Color overlay' plugin uses the paper grains from Graphicxtras as well. Use the dye concentrations or hiding power settings to create different colored textured effects on any surface or image.

'Adjust dye concentration' plugin uses the grain with different max and min threshold settings to add interesting color effects. Again, the plugin also comes into its own when combining different effects such as blurring the result and then reapplying the dye concentrations with different papers or different scaling of the same paper.

The grains can be used for superb black and white imagery in 'express texture'.

The motion blur and soften and super soften cannot use the grain information but again, simply use the selection commands and then apply a smooth or blur.

'Custom tile' plugin uses the grainy grains to create weird and wonderful textures. Use the blur commands and different color combinations to create unusual tile effects. By using different threshold settings, such as the min (to use mainly the tile texture) or the max (creating a combination of tile texture and image). Even by using different thickness (of grout) settings, many wonderful color textured effects can be created.

The grains can be used in the pop art fills by saving the texture as a pattern and then using the original luminance settings

Use the grain created selection and 'convert to shape' to create a grain shape. The vector shape then can be transformed and distorted or used as a floater (convert to a floater .. ) Apply brush strokes to shape/floater or effects or use the shape/floater as a color overlay. Export the shape layer to Illustrator AI format and others

Create wonderful frames using paper grains in Painter, apply to a square block of white on black.

Use the grains in combo with brush strokes. Most of the brushes (and even nozzles can use the grain information via a selection or grain/layer) use the grain information depending on the method and sub category such as using a grainy flat cover or grainy edge or using the grain information in various plugin methods such as the 'add grain' brush.

Or use the grain via patterns as a source for clone color or for impasto brush 3D effects

Use the grains via patterns as a source for clone and using mosaics, brush strokes, cloned brushes and other clone related effects.

Use the grain as a source for a Painter ™ captured brush. Export grain and then select and use the captured brush command.

Grains can also be used in a number of the floater plugins such as glass distortion or the burn plugin

Use the textures in the burn dynamic floater to create unusual torn / burnt edges

Use a grain via a clone source (pattern)

And probably a few 100 more possible ways of using the grains from in Painter ™.
