The uses of templates vary according to the many uses that they have in actual real life, these can be used in many places to depict the nature of these metal textures(gold textures) anywhere. They can be used in presentations and projects for guidance; they can also be used at various other general places. They can be used anywhere at any time thus saving a lot time. They are usable many times besides giving the look of professionalism to your work.

For those who want to have their own kind of templates and have their own unique style in everything that they do, here is how to create one of your own templates for the same.

You can use an existing photo of the metal that you have in your phone, while you can also take a fresh photo since one is always around such metals. Now this photo obviously would not give that perfect effect and shine as desired and as found in the templates online. You can do this by using many effects that are available in photo editors available in your smart phone.

You can also use an editing mechanism such as Adobe Photoshop and enhance it by using layers and adding layers to it. Next you can use brushes like the magic wand to separate some part or extract it. You can also use the brush(Photoshop paint brushes) tool to give it extra effects.

You can make use of the tools such as inner shadow, stroke and drop shadow to give it some cool look. Each time taking a new layer, you can then also add the glossy type shining effect to it. You can also chose from the filters provided for you already.

You can use the shape tool to add a glossy type effect to some part of an object. Such as, for a round object can do this by using the elliptical marquee tool to make a circle and then add the effect to it. Just change the foreground to transparent and you will get the desired effect in the selected part of that circle.

While using any other object that is not round, you can make use of the pen tool to create a shape and then right click inside it. Next you can ‘make the selection’ and repeat the color selecting process to find your desired matching color.
One can also make use of an already available template and then make a little change in it by brush strokes. This will give the rough texture look to the background. You can also add other frames to it by using a photo editing mechanism such as Pixlr Express. While using this you can add the desired effects and even many different overlays. In the end you can also add and give a frame to it. Later you can also blur some changes if you want a rough effect. The heal tool also works wonders when giving patchy texture looks to any metal texture template already downloaded.

There are also many effects available for the image which includes photo vintage effects, color effects, old style effects, modern effects, classical effects and even funky effects to choose from.

If someone wants to make plates on the texture as a background you can also use many filters that have this desired effect already. This way you can even make your very own metal plate texture template.

> Tips

  • Since you are using Adobe Photoshop, you can make use of the
  • Shapes in Adobe Photoshop can also be changed using the skew or distort tool to change even the view of the image.

> Dos and Don’ts

  • Make sure you do lock all the layers while you are working out the first option of Adobe Photoshop.
  • Make sure that you name all the layers according to the work you have done on them.
  • Make sure that you don’t use normal color scheme but use outer glow when choosing a color to add shine to your picture.
