How can I create fruit’s texture?

I’m looking to create fruit’s texture, specifically a lemon’s, in the form of a textured image that is otherwise transparent. This is because I want to be able to use it as an overlay layer on elements in my browser.

Here’s an example of the type of texture I’m trying to create, minus the yellow

I was able to find how to create textured text comprised of fruit images, but I am in need of an overlay because my content is more dynamic.

I also looked into Photoshop’s filters, namely Plastic Wrap because it looked similar to the kind of texture I am trying to make, but I was unable to apply the filter to an otherwise transparent image

Can someone provide insight about how I might create an otherwise transparent, textured image similar to a lemon’s skin?


Using Blue1086’s approach I was able to create the following which is great, but is there a way to remove more of the grey? As you can see in my project, it makes the lemon at the top a bit more grey than I would like

Answer

What I think you are trying to say is you want a lemon texture over an image.
To do this, I would do this:

  1. Create a fully colored lemon (or just use an image)
  2. Go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate Image
  3. Go to Edit > Define Pattern
  4. Create a Blank New Layer above the Image you want to place the texture
  5. Go to Edit > Fill (Make Sure under Blending, Mode is set to Normal, and Opacity is set to 100%
  6. Click OK
  7. Set the layer’s Blend Mode to Overlay

Did this work?

EDIT: Ok, now I see what you what you want.

  1. Create a Transparent Layer in Photoshop
  2. Paste your image
  3. Go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate Image
  4. Change Opacity to about 50%
  5. Go to File > Save As
  6. Set format to PNG (or another transparent format)
  7. Click Save
