Creating a Basic Texture
I’ve added textures to my images from darkroom to photoshop, to make my images original.
Textures are ‘The Thing to Do’. Everyone want to know how!
Collecting Textures is something I collect every time I walk out the door, they are everywhere. You can catalogue Textures by Keywords, which makes them easier to find. Never buy textures or download them.
Start by playing with a few textures. You can apply them is so many ways but Opacity are the easiest and a starting point.
Example shown worked in Photoshop.
I’ve chosen a texture and the original image with an opacity adjustment in place. Drag & Drop your texture and use Opacity to adjust the texture layer.
I started at approx 75%. Each Texture will react differently, it’s simply the more you do the more you learn
Now explore textures and have fun but remember creativity is something that starts inside and is individual.
Every Happy Accident pushes the boundaries that little bit further and opens your eyes to another alternative.
You’ll see the world differently once you start collecting textures.
