In this tutorial viewers will learn how to create a vector texture to apply a non-rasterized texture to vector images, using Photoshop and Illustrator

Video Steps

1. Open a textured image such as a scanned-in piece of cardboard in Photoshop

2. Convert the texture to black and white by going to Image > Adjustments > Black and White

3. Adjust the contrast by going to Image > Adjustments > Levels. A higher contrast image will yield a more defined texture

4. Save an image as a PSD by going to File > Save As and selecting the .PSD option

5. Open the PSD in Illustrator

6. Convert the texture image to vector shapes using the Image Trace tool (Window > Image Trace)

7. Select a Preset that fits your texture. For scanned-in paper textures, the Shades of Gray preset works best. Trace by clicking the "Trace Button"

8. With the image selected, go to Object > Expand and ensure both "Object" and "Fill" are checked

9. Save the texture as a .AI file
