A Free & Easy Texture Tuesday


Well, what could be more 'free and easy' than humming The Beatles "She Loves You" (also the name of one of Kim Klassen's great textures!) while enhancing photographs and photo art in Photoshop?  I still can't get the tune out of my head!  But I'm not complaining - look at what the texture and the tune did for my images:



Kim Klassen's texture "She Loves You" added to an intentionally ghostly composite of five stock images from Web.  I did not have to adjust the texture to make the words "...loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah..." appear on fiddler's body!  The texture was merged with the composite using Luminosity Blend Mode with an Opacity of 71%  A Layer Mask was used to remove some of the text from faces, etc.  Editing was finished with a Levels Adjustment.



Again, I used the same great texture blended with Pin Light at 80% Opacity.  A Layers Mask was used to remove text from flower petals.  A Levels Adjustment was used to desaturate the image a bit by moving Output slider to70%.

  10. I'm correcting myself....I don't think that's a white rose, after all! A peony??? Wow!

  14. Wow, that's pretty intense. I love the composite and the dreamy, foggy texture work definitely adds a "ghostly" mood as you say. Just please don't get that song stuck in my head, it'll be days before it's gone. :)

  17. Bonnie, both of these look fantastic, I absolutely love the look you created on both of your photos.You have inspired me to work a little harder and differently next time. I would love to try a collage type photo that you did in your first photo, but wouldn't know where to begin! Thanks for dropping by.
