    I'm trying to make a cloth banner effect like the thumb I attached using PS 8. Particularly what I want is the wavy cloth effect so the banner looks like a cloth banner ( wavy backgound).

    Anyone know how to do this, or what exaxctly this effect is called?

    Note: graphic is not mine, I found it here: http://www.h-eight.com/wh40k/smarines3.htm

    Yes! Without the words, I just want to do the background effect, well add that background to an image I have.

    That's an expensive plug-in. Anyway of manually doing it?

    Apreciate the help and thanks for the graphic!

    I wanted to learn how to do it though. Most filters mimic options available in a few steps within the program. I figured it just would have been a brush manulipated with lighting then saved as a texture.

    PK he wanted a way to do it without the filter that's all. You should bother cause you know what you are doing and can be very helpful. He just wanted something a little different than what you offered.

    PK, I do appreciate it! I'm just one of those people that need to ask how and why.

    Your method is the most logical, the way I wanted to do it, like the tutorial, is very....well its taking alot of trial and error. But I'm learning and that is what I wanted to do.

    And the reputation stuff, didn't know you guys were *that* into it. OKie, Rep points for you and Tuff!

    Thanks again for the help!
