at the check out.



I have applied two of the textures on the following image. Please move your mouse over the image to see a before/after effect. Please check out the screenshot of the PS layers for more information.









To lessen the effect of the silver blue texture on the light misty part, I have applied a layer mask and  painted with a soft brush at 50% opacity until I was satisfied with the result. To achieve the grunge texture effect in the dark parts I used the second texture in blend mode Luminosity, that way I got the structure without altering the tones of the image.  Finally I had to correct the contrast with a Curves layer.

Abstract Skies II & how to use them

Image
Hi,
ever wondered how to add some painterly clouds and textures to an dull monochrome sky?
Use textures that feature subtle cloud structures!
I made 12 textures, that have clouds in them and I used them in the following images:





As you can see in the before images one obviously needs skies with a lot of negative space to fill. So these are either clear blue cloudless skies or skies overcast with indifferent clouds.
Erasing parts of the texture with a soft brush on a layer mask is always a good way to get rid of parts, that you don't want to have a texture on.

Apart from using the MULTIPLY blend mode I also often use the texture in NORMAL mode and create a soft transition between the landscape and the sky by applying a gradient on a layer mask, like I used on Dangerous Waters.

Any questions? Don't hesitate to contact me.



These textures are available on my site here:
