I have never really played with Photoshop Elements 10 and after reading a blog post by Leanne Cole about Textures, I decided to take a look at a new blog called Public Domain Textures. I highly recommend this blog for textures… they are free and there are some beautiful textures to choose from.
I started off with this photo
And decided to add this texture to it.. by using creating a new layer with this texture.
I used a normal layer and reduced the opacity to 40% which created this picture.
As a trial I think created duplicate layer, increased the opacity to 60% and then removed some of the texture from the yellow flowers…
Until reading Leanne Cole’s blog post I had never thought of texturing my pictures.. now there will be no stopping me and thanks to the guys and gals at Public Domain Textures for producing a site database of textures, for us amateurs to use.
