    Hey Denny,

    thanks for your tutorial. It seems really nice! I am relatively new to photoshop and currently learning/using CS5 and I cannot find the Adaptive Wide Angle Filter that you used in Step 3. My Google research told me it’s a new thing in CS6 :(!!

    Is there any way to do the same thing in CS5?

    Thank you!!!

      Unfortunately that filter is only in Photoshop CS6 or CC :(

      You can try adding some guides and using the transform tools to skew it but it might not work on every image.

    Cool trick and good results.
    It looks awesome in your photo, but the problem is lighting. Because your photo is flat, you don’t run into this problem. Try it with a texture that’s more 3D and you will see the lighting get flipped.

    There are GIMP plugins that can do this like “make seamless” or “texturizer” but they don’t enlarge your texture like this way. In the 3D world, there’s a lot more texture making programs but too expensive for the casual designers.

    TLDR; This tutorial is best for flat surfaces. On 3D surfaces with sharp shadows/light, it won’t work. But nonetheless, this is the best I’ve seen for flat surfaces.
