I will be the first to admit that I am obsessed with using textures on my images. It is such an easy way to add artistic effects and color to photos. Today I put together a new set of vintage cracked paint textures/overlays. Use these in Soft Light, Overlay, Multiple, Screen or a combo of several blending modes.
It is also fun to use them on B&W images and add a tilt-lens affect in Photoshop. This is a photo of my son in Galveston Island, TX.
CoffeeShop “Cracked” Vintage Texture Tutorial:
To edit this image I added the CoffeeShop Cracked 3 (gray) texture twice, both in Soft Light blending mode, 100% and 60% opacity. Then I added a soft green Color Fill layer and put in Soft Light blending mode for a beautiful color tint.
I wanted to brighten and lighten the image, so I added a soft ivory Color fill layer on top in Soft Light, 65% opacity.
This is why I love using Photoshop/PSE, I have full control of my edit unlike so many apps.
