Photoshop Textures

SJP - Tips & Lessons

Today I would like to talk about using textures in Adobe Photoshop on Creative Cloud.

I always enjoy watching Mark Johnson’s video tutorials. He’s so informative and creative. I just watched his video called, “Photoshop Workbench 423: Texture Blending with Adobe Paper Texture Pro” and I  loved it; check it out here.  It’s so fun to photograph and then add a bit of your own creative spin to the image, like textures for example.

I have purchased some of his photography tutorial goodies on his website.  Click here to see his amazing work.
As always…I like the before pics too but had so much fun processing texture into the photo that I wanted to share this with you.  If you comment to Mark tell him Janice sent you. 🙂
