In this tutorial you will learn a Simple Technique for adding textures to your images. We are using multiple textures combined together to create the final effect.
How we use the Textures
After loading the textures onto our portrait we group them and place a Layer Mask on the group. In this case we don’t want the Textures to effect the entire image so we mask out areas where we want left alone like the subject’s Face.
Next we change each layer blending mode to Soft Light and use Levels to adjust the Brightness of each layer until they blend in. You can also use Opacity to change how visible the textures are on your image.
