Learn about using layer blend modes, and dodging and burning to incorporate a texture with flat artwork.
- [Instructor] In this movie I'll show…how we can apply texture through the use…of layer blend modes.…This is my finished state.…I have two layers.…I'll turn off the top layer.…Here is my starting image and to this,…I have added this layer of texture.…It is in the overlay blend mode…and I've chanced the opacity to 70%.…I have also applied a smart filter…to this layer which is converting the colors…of the texture to black and white.…
So now let's move to the starting state of the file…and the first thing I'll do is come to the file menu…and choose place embedded.…I'll choose my texture file and place.…I'll now adjust the proportions of this…so that it's at the same aspect ratio…as the image itself, and to do that…I'm holding down option or alt…and dragging from one of the edges.…Press enter or return to commit to that…and I can now experiment with my blend modes.…
There are certain blend modes that typically…will work better than others.…They are multiply for a darkening effect,…screen for a lightening effect…and to add contrast, either overlay or soft light.…
