Learn how to add a texture using a layer mask.
- [Instructor] As an alternative to applying your…textures through the use of blend modes and opacity,…you can use layer masks.…In this file, I have applied a layer mask…to my image layer, and beneath that,…I have added a layer of solid color.…Let's see how this works.…I'm going to switch to my beginning file,…and I have two layers, my starting image layer,…and a layer of texture.…Now rather than change the blend mode of this texture…to say something like overlay which is going to combine…the colors of the texture with the color…of the layer beneath, instead what I can do,…is set the blending mode back to normal,…press Command or Control + A to select all,…Command or Control + C to copy,…hide my texture layer, activate my image layer,…add a layer mask, and then I need to make sure…that I'm actually on the layer mask,…and paste the image into the layer mask.…
If I just press Command or Control + V right now,…it will paste the contents of my clipboard…as a separate layer, but if I hold Option or Alt,…and click onto the layer mask, and then press Command…
