Making a simple hair transparent texture #Photoshop #GIMP #Paint.NET

Hi folks,

This post will be very similar to my post about making an opacity map. So if you have read that post then you only need to skim this for salient differences. Just to make it slightly different I have also added an incredibly small flaw into the hair by way of a slight wave. I did this because nothing is truly straight in nature.

So our goal is to create a texture that already has some transparency in it. Hence no need for opacity maps.

I might also add, make sure that you save a copy of your texture before you start work on it. Don’t want to wreck your only copy, do you?


I tend to just create a new layer mask on my existing Hair Texture psd


  1. You are way ahead of me, that’s for sure. I’m no good with computer programs and I can’t sing a note. Go to the top of the class Greg.


    1. Thanks mate 🙂 I just do what I like, as do you. To be honest I am in awe of most other people on WordPress. Everyone seems so much more talented and accomplished than myself. 🙂
