I've posted a couple photos that I've done with added textures, and was going to do a texture tutorial, but thought.....why invent the wheel? There are so many good tutorials out there already, just google it!
Or head over to the Coffeeshop blog, and read the one that Rita has already posted. I go to Rita's blog every day for her great tutorials, freebies, blog help and just plain entertainment. Every once in awhile she posts funny stories about her 2 boys!
If you go to the Florabella blog, you can purchase some of my very favorite textures. I use them in so many photos. It looks like video tutorials are coming to that blog soon, that should be fantastic!
One of my other absolute favorite places to get great textures is from Jessica Drossin. Jessica is a fabulous photographer, and has made a couple texture packs that are very reasonably priced.
Just recently I discovered Chasing Dreams Photography. Colleen is also a wonderful photographer that has made several texture packs for purchase that are very affordable.
Jerry Jones has a blog called Shadowhouse Creations, and boy is it packed with information and lots of great free textures. Jerry also has tons of tutorials there to help with various photoshop creations.
And one more place to pick up some different texture sets is from my friend Sue Gary.
Check out her Glorious Nature Blog for some fun and different textures and overlays including butterflies and birds!
In this next photo, I used an action from my Flickr friend Tracy. She is also very generous and has a blog with free PS actions and ACR and LR presets. I also used Florabella action "primrose" from the Spring I set. Then 3 textures from the Texture pack II....vintage velvet, scratched vintage, and merlot. This is the result:
In this photo below, I used the Florabella action Vintage Wine, and 2 textures from Chasing Dreams Photography...Giovanni and jasmine.
And here's the peonies straight out of the camera, no textures and no color adjustments....just bright and beautiful.
Both of the textured photos can be found in my Etsy shop now!Share |
