Procedural noise textures produce visually appealing random patterns with a variety of uses. They are often applied as realistic bump-maps or for landscape generation, clouds, grunge effects, and many others, limited only by the artist's imagination and skill.

After installing Adobe Exchange, the Exchange panel is accessible through the Window → Extensions → Adobe Exchange sub-menu option. You may search for “Solid Noise” if it is not visible.

When you purchase the Solid Noise filter through Adobe Exchange, it is automatically installed. After restarting Photoshop, you can access the filter through the Filter → Render → Solid Noise sub-menu option.  We also include a Solid Noise Difference filter for convenience.
