I need your expert advice. My goal is to use pattern overlay correctly on a seat image. I googled for several options and I tried a couple tutorials. So far, the Filter | Distort | Displace seems likely the answer. However, is there a better way to wrap the pattern over the seat seamlessly that it looks like the original fabric?
I started with this original image. It's poor quality and low res.
With this pattern, i re-sized it smaller to almost the actual size ,
I used Content Aware to create a pattern layer that can cover the seat, which is this
After which, I created a Displacement Map with the first image (original image). Then I used the Filter | Distort | Displace; using the standard values of 10 for both.
Here's the screenshot of it.
This is my final output, I just added a Blending Mode of Multiply like 45% Please Open image in new tab and zoom for 100% as it's a huge image.
Do you guys have a better suggestion on how do to this properly? The goal is to make it unnoticeable that it’s photoshopped.
