Still Life Texture Tutorial 2016-12-10T17:01:57+00:00

With texture removed from the fabric area I set the layer to Soft Light with an Opacity of 63%.

 

The next step was to add some overall color to the image and some softer textures. I selected 2 of my textures to use.

The first texture was set to Multiply with an Opacity of 75% and a Fill of 40%.

 

The next texture, placed on a layer above, was set to Overly with an Opacity of 100%.

NOTE: All these setting are never fixed in stone, what works for this photo will not work for every photo. You just simply play around until the layer settings enhances some aspect of your image – maybe it brightens the image, maybe it adds color, maybe the texture blends with the photo better with one setting rather than another setting. Experiment and save as you go along!
