I was looking for a smooth stone effect, I have an example before. I have looked it up and even searched for metal type tutorials but I can not find anything close!

Can somebody help me find something similar to the below stone effect/texture?

yea! that is good enough. It seems that you either made a gradient or put lighting on a circle that has been grained, perhaps a duplicate layer has been grained on top of the original. Either way, That looks good :D

Can you please tell me the steps? BTW I want to have this type of effect on the border of a website i am creating, so after you go about 20% down, all lighting as to be equal, would this look just as real? I dont know.... lol, i guess ill have to do some testing, but please post! thanks!

Yea, I just used the eliptical selection, and selected the 'radial gradient' type.

Of course your going to use whatever you need as far as lights and shadows, and the shape of the object.

I made a new layer with that same selection still selected. I used the paint bucket to make the selection white in the new layer.

then Filters->Noise->Add Noise

Selected Guassian and checked Monochromatic. Used about 225% as my amount.

Then on that same layer I went Filter->Blur->Gaussian Blur with my radious about 0.8 pixels.

For that layer I used Soft Light as the blend mode, and lowered the opacity to about 40%


It should be easy for you to acheive this as far as the lighting 20% down and so on.

You will probably have to makie one huge peice then slice it up into sepearate pieces so it will be all uniform.
