Scorched Earth Texture
We'll create this scorched earth texture in this photoshop tutorial
Create a blank document of the size you want your texture to be.
Switch to the channels view and create a new channel.
In this channel use Filter --> Structurize --> Stained Glass with these settings:
You'll notice a brigth spot in the middle of the channel so use Levels (CTRL-L) like shown below to remove it.
Copy your channel and use the Photocopy filter on it:
Change to layers view.
Use Filter --> Render --> Lighting Effects and apply these settings:
The RGB colors are 180,90,0 and 90,60,0
It's important that you use the Alpha 1 copy texture channel!
This is what your scorched earth texture will look like now:
The last step is to add some noise (Filter --> Noise --> Add Noise)
You might want to remove the border now
Alright, you're done with your scorched earth texture.
