Before n After: Charleston Charm


As a Yankee living in the south I've learned a thing or too about southern charm - never serve tea unsweetened, don't forget to use formalities like Mr. and Mrs., and always keep a spare stick of butter!


Add a little southern charm to your image:
  1. Layer the Enchanted Texture on a blending of overlay at 80% opacity
  2. Duplicate the texture layer {Hot keys: Ctrl J}
  3. Blend the 2nd texture layer on multiply at 80%

  4. Love this, Kristy! The colors, the warmth... And, ahh yes, all of those southern charms! As a southerner living in Yankee territory, I have to say I miss the sweet tea, and the slower pace to life! :)
