Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding water stains, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
So now that we've added the deckled edges, let's add some stain damage to the photo.…And I'm going to do this using the Sponge filter.…But before I do so, I'm just going to do a bit of housekeeping with this file.…Our background is made up of two layers, one of which has several layer effects.…Things would just get a bit tidier.…If I select both of those layers and Command+G or Ctrl+G to make them into a…group, and I'll then name the group background, and then the layers on top of…that, the photo and its adjustment layer, I'm going to make those in to a group as well.…
So we now have got two main groups.…Now the water damage that we want to add is going to need be added above top layer.…So I'm going to create a new layer above that and I'm going to hold down the Alt…key while I click on Create New layer so that I can name it as well.…And I'm going to call this stains.…I'm going to fill it with white, white is currently my background color, so I'm…going to Command+Delete or Ctrl+Delete.…And then I'm going to convert it for Smart Filters.…
