The Texture Touch

Tutorial: Winter Dream
  1. Start with the Windsong Texture - working in the layers palette set the blending of the texture to soft light
  2. Tip - This will burn the texture only into the dark areas of your photo
  3. Add the Enchanted Texture and set the blending mode to hard light
  4. Lower the opacity of this texture to reveal more of your image. I reduced it to 12% for my image
P.S. You can download the Windsong Texture for Free!

  3. You did a fabulous job with this image. It is fabulous. I think I can smell them through the computer screen they are so real. Would love to use your texture but clicked on the house but had no luck. You are so kind to share your work with the rest of us. Hope you have a wonderful picture filled week. genie
