Texture Anarchy is a set of Adobe Photoshop filters for creating textures and borders. With these three Photoshop texture filters, you can create a variety of seamless, infinite textures that range from realistic and organic to design-appropriate. Plain old math is used to generate, extend, and output an image.
Each filter provides a different kind of seamless procedural texture. Texture Explorer is the centerpiece of the Photoshop textures set and creates seamless procedural textures. Tiler Anarchy is like Texture Explorer but its textures are always seamlessly repeated. Edge Anarchy is designed to create textured, distressed, or ornamental borders.
The Texture Anarchy filters create 2D or 3D Photoshop textures. The textures are procedural textures based on fractal noise, which is terrific for natural images like fire, smoke, clouds, and marble. The many palettes for lighting, layers, fractal noise and color gradients are the building blocks of your textures. There are color wells and gradients to generate interesting color combinations. There are tons of Blend Modes that set how the patterns and colors interact with each other.

Presets give you an easy and fun starting point. The Preset Manager holds combinations of color, lighting and grayscale depth. Once you have loaded a preset, you can dig into the ‘mixing’ process of color, fractal noise and bump maps. Make quick adjustments to the preset and render it out. Experiment and save your own presets to build a library of textures for future Photoshop projects.
