Video Tutorial: Realistic Money Effect in Photoshop

I’ve been posting written tutorials on this site for many years, with most of them now buried deep in my archives. I’ve also been thinking about extending my site to include video tutorials, so I thought why not incorporate the two and produce videos for some of my most popular guides from the past? This will hopefully give newcomers a chance to check those topics out, while also updating them with some new techniques. Follow along with my first video tutorial based on my most popular tutorial of all time; How To Create a Realistic Money Effect in Photoshop. Learn how to create a series of screen patterns then apply them to an image to create an engraved illustration effect, as seen on bank note portraits.

  1. Great Tutorial, I’m a huge fan of your work and had put to use many of your tutorials. Recently downloaded the PS action on this article and had an error saying that paint bucket had no pattern defined.

    I’m kind of new in PS Actions, so i might just run the process manually, but wanted to give the feedback on this one and of course, receive any kind help if possible.

  3. This is a great way to follow your tutorials – sometimes it’s easy to miss a step by step in typed format.

    Great work Chris

  6. Nice tutorials, but I think you should preface your piece by indicating that you are working on a Mac (and inform PC users that they can use Control rather than command for most things), and also tell us what version of software you are using as well as what’s required for each lesson. Adobe, like most other software companies, change the name and placement for things from version to version, and sometimes eliminate features completely (e.g. “Back Minus Front”from the Illustrator Pathfinder menu.
