Using Photoshop Textures to Improve Your Photos

This working with textures video tutorial accompanies the main article in the Winter 2015 newsletter. Read the newsletter then watch the video to see the technique in actions. The video demonstrates how to blend a texture file with an image to create a more interesting and dynamic effect. The texture blending is performed in Photoshop using layer blending before the image is processed further using the Nik Efex tools. The image used in the demonstration can be downloaded from the “Downloads for Books” section of the Members Area and is found in the “Nik Color Efex Pro” package. You can also find free texture files to use in the “Textures” page of the site also found in the Members Area.

I hope you enjoy.
