How To Use Displacement Maps to Mockup Your T-Shirt Designs

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.

  1. How are you export mockup? With a displace map? When im sending my mockup to another user, displace filter don t working – its need a displace map. Please help if you now how linked or embed a displace map

  2. good presentation, i do have a question, since displacing in the end it diluted the white color in your design. is there a way to not let that happen and still give effects

    1. The blending is only done by using the sliders in the layer effects panel. It’s not due to using the displace effect. If you don’t do the blending, then it won’t dilute the white. Or you can still blend it, but don’t blend it so much using the sliders (shown @3:53), so you still get a subtle texture if desired.

    1. If you’re using a photo of a specific colored shirt, you can adjust the color by using “Hue/Saturation”. The shortcut is “CMD(Ctrl) + U” and you can then use the Hue slider to adjust the color.

    1. Not in this video, no. But to change the color (if you don’t have the photo of it), you can adjust the “Hue/Saturation” (CMD+U). Play with the Hue to get the color you want, then adjust the Saturation to get the shade of color you want. Hope that helps!

  3. hi brent… great vid.. can you do a vid on how to put your logo on whatever part of your shirt you want? and hoodies also, even on the hood? thanks

    1. Ok.. i should have said… how do you put them on a black shirt? that’s the issue i’m having… thank you.

    2. The steps shared in this video would actually apply to those things just the same! All you’d need is the photo you want to mock up your logo on, then follow these same steps.

  4. Hands down the best, clearest, best organized t-shirt tutorial. Great for any level. Huge respect, Brent.

  5. but it works on other colors to ? like i have black color sticker so its work on black to ?

  6. at 5:12, “we hold the Options key…”. What exactly is the “Options key,” Brent? By the way, outstanding tutorial, best I’ve seen.

    1. if you’re on Windows, click on the edge of the slider and immediately press the alt key to split it.

  7. I was missing the options in “Blend If” all these days and now it is whole different level. Appreciate the tip, Brent. Thanks

  8. Hey, thanks for the tutorial. I am having problems though. First, i noticed your different layers and i don’t know how you got there. I uploaded my image and immediately went to the channels panel and it would let me right click any, even with the background unlocked. If you can help me with this and/or walk me through to the point where you started this tutorial i would really appreciate it.

    1. +Brent Galloway Thank you so much. It’s embarassing but that’s what I was doing, simply clicking on the wrong spot on the screen. Once again, thanks alot bro, be blessed.

    2. +J Jay The only layer you need to start out with is the t-shirt you’re using to mockup your design on. Then from there you need to click over into the “Channels” panel. In order to be able to right-click the right channel, you need to first select it so it’s the only visible channel (i.e. red or green channel). With it selected, you should then be able to right-click and move forward with creating the displacement map. It’s hard to know exactly what the issue is without seeing what you’re doing for myself, so I hope this helps.

  9. I wish i could find where you can make 3D T-shirt in photoshop
    Where I can edit my image any time from sleeve, front, and bock of the shirt…

  10. very very helpful. I wanted to create a brickwall with writing on it to use as my greenscreen background for future videos and this really helped!

  11. Just rewatched this tutorial to follow along for a tshirt mockup. SO useful! thanks for making this Brent 🙂

    1. +CharliMarieTV I’m so glad to hear that, Charli! Can’t wait to see how you put your new t-shirt mockup skills to use! 🙂

  12. Hey Brent couldn’t we just use Multiply to pull up the shadows at the end rather than using the blending option?

    1. @Brent Galloway Ahhhh ok…Thanks for the response and thanks for the great tutorial.

    2. +ⒷⒶⓃⒼ|ⒷⒶⓃⒼ Actually it doesn’t work in this case, especially with the artwork being white (it just disappears completely.) By manually blending, you can really pull the specific light and dark shadows separately through the artwork – no matter the color of it. This is something that can’t be achieved with a simple Blend Mode. Hope this helps!

  13. Wow, this is really comprehensive and has me thinking about using Displacement Maps for other things as well!
