Touch Up Tuesday

I drive by this barn everyday on my way to and from the office.  So few afternoons ago I saw man outside and decide to drive up the lane.  I rolled down my window and asked if I could take a picture.  The man looked at me, smiled, and asked "Why do you want to take a picture of me?"  I laughed and pointed the barn!

 Add a worn effect to your image with these quick steps!
  1. Layer the Aging Estate Texture, Blend on Vivid Light and adjust the Opacity down to 60%
  2. Duplicate the layer [Crtl J], switch the Blending Mode to Multiply and hold the Opacity
  3. Change or enhance the light, create a new layer, swipe the gradient tool, Blend on Screen and slide the Opacity to half

Titled: Faded and Worn

  15. Thank you so much for the edit info - I really, really love this photo! LOL about the man thinking that you wanted to take HIS photo! :)

  16. Ha! That's cute. He thought you wanted his picture. He was probably wondering why you would rather have a picture of an old barn. *snort*

    I love old barn photos, by the way. Love the vintage look!
