Quick Paper Layer Tool (TPL)

 

paper texture background maker tool
Quick Paper Texture Fill – One click fills your layer with ‘instant paper’

When you just need a quick paper-like background instead of your plain solid colour, one click from this seamless paper texture fill tool gives you an instant textured paper background. Great for quick mockups that you can replace later if you like.

You can install this into the GrutBrushes Plugin, or into Photoshop’s Tool Presets panel (like this) This is designed to be a quick, low impact tool (less than 14KB) that you can have at your fingertips in a pinch. It is not intended to replace proper realistic high res paper textures like the Art Surfaces.
