Image canvas effect

In this tutorial you will learn how to create an image canvas effect in Photoshop. This gives the effect as if the image was painted on canvas. The process requires the glass and texterizer filters

Image canvas effect

Step 1

Open an image in Photoshop. I have used a free stock image of a fish which is available from

Step 2

Select Filter > Distort > Glass and add the following settings below:

  • Distortion = 1
  • Smoothness = 3
  • Texture = Canvas
  • Scaling = 80%

You should get a similar image below. Notice there is a slight distortion in the image.

Step 3

Select Filter > Texture > Texterizer and then add the following settings. You can experiment with the various settings if you wish.
  • Texture = Canvas
  • Scaling = 68%
  • Relief = 6
  • Light = Top right

You should now have a nice canvas texture on your image.
