I just designed a new vintage texture/overlay pack to share with you today! I call it “Curie” (for Marie Curie) and it comes in two different colors.
I love using these on my images in Soft Light, Overlay, Multiply, Screen, or a combo of these blending modes. You can also use them on digital papers to age them, or alone.
CoffeeShop “Curie” Texture Tutorial:
I aged this digital paper by adding the Curie texture in soft light blending mode.
I love this edit! I used the Curie texture 100% in Soft Light, then added a black-to-light gray gradient map (see screenshot below) on top in Normal mode. This made the image B&W.
Finally I added a copy of the original beach image (Background) on top in 100% Soft Light. This added back color, but with a gorgeous vintage feel.
I love using these textures on B&W images.
To create this edit, I added the CoffeeShop Curie texture twice in Soft Light blending mode (100% and 50%). The image was too dark so I copied the original image (Background) and put that in Screen blending mode at 38%.
Then I added a Gradient Map on top that went from light gray to black (see screenshot above). This makes a beautiful B&W image with soft gray highlights.
I hope you enjoy using these textures!
