The Texture Touch

Today I want to share a tutorial and Free Texture from the Life-n-Reflection March Newsletter.  In the popularity of the color green that month I designed the Granny Smith Texture. If you don't already have it click the links to download it and try the quick tutorial.

Beginner Lesson:
  1. Drop granny smith over your image and drag the corners until the texture covers the whole image
  2. In the layers palette select the multiply blending mode from the drop down menu
  3. Slide the opacity bar to 80%

  10. These photos could easily have been taken right here in Rockbridge County. I especially like the one of the window. I am always shooting them wondering what stories they have to tell about days gone by. The granny smith texture worked beautifully. I know you must be pleased with the outcome. Very creative.genie
