Photoshop CC Tutorial: How to create a textured Pop Art Photo Effect (Easy & Quick!)

Get the latest version of Photoshop CC here:

In this Adobe Photoshop Tutorial, I will be using Photoshop CC to demonstrate how to quickly create a textured pop art photo effect.

1. Convert your layer to a smart object and apply a threshold adjustment.

2. FIll in unwanted portions with white on a new layer

3. Add a new gradient map adjustment layer with a color combo of your choice.

4. Add a new texture fill layer and set it to multiply, overlay, or softlight at about 20 percent opacity. Alternatively, you can use a stock texture photo like concrete or a wall.

Try it out with a color combo and a texture of your own!

    If anyone is getting an error where the picture is filling in more detail than the preview shows. you can fix this by sizing down your photo. This effect works better on canvases that are 7" tall (from my experience).

    Thankyou, this is the easiest Pop art way that I have crossed. I like how I didn’t have to paint in the picture to change colors in certain areas. It is crisper and cleaner looking. TY
