Photoshop Tutorial: Using Textures in Portraits & Fine Art

Learn how to use Photoshop grunge textures to enhance your fine art photography.

It's time for a quick & easy Photoshop Texture Tutorial!

Ever wondered how photographers get that gorgeous vintage or painterly effect on their images?

The secret is by applying textures in Photoshop.

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I've had a Photoshop Texture Tutorial in the works for a bit to accompany the free Photoshop grunge textures that I'm gifting (grab them here!). 

And, as promised, I've created the tutorial, especially for those who are wondering how to incorporate textures into the portrait and fine art workflow. It ended up being pretty long, so I've broken it up into bite-sized chunks.

You know, for easy digestion and what have ya.

This savory morsel kicks things off with some basics. If you've never used textures before, then this is for you!

I show you how to apply textures, change their blending mode, change the opacity, how to remove the color cast that they can create, and how to apply multiple textures to an image.

The next video will be talking about a couple of different ways that you can edit your textures so that they don't show up subject's skin.

If you'd like to get the rest of the videos in this series delivered straight to your inbox, along with the free Photoshop Grunge Textures that I use, click here.

I'll be back again soon with Part Two of this tutorial! Until then, happy creating!
