Super useful

The sets are all for commercial (CU4CU), use to create items for sale. They are for countless applications and are all in PSD format. All the PSDs are by Andrew Buckle / graphicxtras.com. The maps are basic files but these files can be used in many of the PS filters such as displace and also glass and others. You can use the PSD maps in Adobe ® Photoshop ® to create distorted effects, glass, textured, painted effects and much more.

Convert the Photoshop displacement maps to other formats

They are in PSD format files in standard PSD format and they can be easily converted to other formats such as PNG or they can be used as a source for more than displacements and textures. You can open a PSD and then use the edit menu / define brush command to save the displacement map to a brush stroke. You can also use the textures in filters such as third party tools such as KPT

 

Displacement maps as Photoshop patterns converted

They can also be used as a source for patterns and can be quickly converted to pattern format. Using the files as patterns is perhaps far more obvious than using as brushes. The only difference between the patterns and the displacements, grayscale - you won't see any reds or blues etc in a texture. The textures are all still seamless.

 

How to combine them

They can be combined to create even more patterns, simply by opening or placing multiple PSD and then combining them using the blending modes etc. As all the tiles are seamless, multiple displace PSD (without any transformations or perhaps with limited transformations such as flip or rotate 90 degree) are also seamless and the end result will still be a seamless tile that can be added to the PS pattern panel via define pattern command.

 

How to use them as a texture for a layer

They can also be used as a texture for a layer. Open the PSD and add them to the pattern panel via the edit menu define pattern command. Create a new layer and fill with gradient or image or painting etc and then go to the layer and layer style menu and add bevel. Select the texture option and then select the created pattern from the dropdown. You can also scale the texture. Displacement Maps as Photoshop Textures Tutorial

 

Using them in Affinity Photo

Weirdly, you cannot use the PSD files via the Affinity Photo displace command but you can use them in PNG format. Quick solution is then to open the files and then save them as PNG and then use them. You can also use the same files then via the gradient tool and the fill layer as a bitmap and you can rotate and scale etc the items

 

How to use the displace filter in PS

You can use the maps PSDs in PS filters. Access the Photoshop displace tool via the filter menu. The filter is pretty old and appears not to have been updated for many years (other than to allow for the filter to work in CC CS6) - the interface and filter technique has been unchanged for ages. It doesn't even feature a preview image so the displacements are very much trial and error. The filter works in a two dialog approach: settings followed by another dialog for the selected map. The filter allows for the setting of the scale of the tile as well as how to apply them (stretch to fit or tile) as well as how to fill the undefined areas of the image. After clicking OK, you are then allowed to select the PSD and apply that. You can re-apply the displace filter / Photoshop PSDs multiple times via the filter repeat command. This is generally only effective when using smaller values of scale. Low scaling values result in a very subtle distortion. Displace filter in Photoshop Tutorial

 

What format are the textures

PSD format. To use Photoshop textures, you have to convert the BMP or JPGs to PSD format. Once in PSD format, they can be used in displace, glass, texturizer etc filter plugins

 

Glass filter and displacement maps in Adobe Photoshop

Quite a powerful filter that can be accessed via the distort glass filter command. The glass filter also uses the map PSDs. The glass filter has changed with the times and is now part of the filter gallery - you can set the distortion, smoothness, texture as well as scaling (though sadly not horizontal and vertical separately) and inverted. The glass filter can be applied multiple times within the same filter gallery and with different maps / image files and different settings of scale and smoothness. You can also combine other filter effects with the glass and the filters can be modified and re-ordered. Another useful feature with CS6 CS5 etc is that you can use the map / glass filter as a smart filter allowing for a more flexible application of the artwork and you can alter the settings at any point in the creative process as long as you don't flatten the layers
