In this course, author Nigel French shows how to use textures to create visual interest, heighten realism, and add dimension to Photoshop artwork. The course demonstrates how to apply multiple filters and paint in effects with layer masks, combine textures with images using layer blending modes, use brushes to paint in and accentuate texture, and create brush presets by sampling textures from photographs. The course also shows how to automate the application of textures with actions.
We've seeing working with Soft Light; I'm using that to integrate our texture into images. How about working with Hard Light which is going to give you a more contrasting result as it names suggests? Here we have a candle and a wineglass photographed on a wooden table. Now I didn't know that because my friend Todd who has supplied this image to me told me that. But it's a very interesting image. Images like this I really good to work with, because they're great to use as textures and they're really easy and fun to take. You just get your camera and you shake it vigorously while to pointing a light source.
Of course, results are unpredictable, but they can work out really well and they can add an instance dynamism to images like this which otherwise might look little bit static. When we put this on separate layer and we change the Blend mode to Hard Light, we get something like that and what could be easier than that?
