In cs5, using Filter > Render > Clouds
Are there any options for changing the way the clouds appear? It does not seem like it, just checking because I do like this and wanted to change the clouds a bit.

Thanks.

You can filter and adjust them after the fact - that's about it.

Well, what are you looking for?

You can apply any Adjustments or Filters you want, but you are not necessarily likely to get the photorealistic look of actual clouds, if that’s what you are aiming for.

The filter uses the foreground and background colors. You can change the appearance accordingly before summoning Clouds.

If you hold ALT(PC)/Option(Mac) as you select the clouds filter, you get a more contrasty result.

If you render clouds on a document whose size is a multiple of 128, you get tilable results.

Usually, it is best to render the clouds on a separate layer, so that you can stretch it for more realism.

All this is also valid for Difference Clouds.

I often combine its results with noise or grain, or fibers, depending on the texture I want.

And hitting command-f multiple times will alter the clouds pattern each time.
