January Calendar


I know its silly, in fact its half over, but I've recently gotten some e-mails asking why I haven't posted calendars of late.  I guess my answer would be, not much response to calendars, so I thought it a waste of time and effort, sorry, guess I may be wrong, so whatever, here's a belated January calendar for your desk top.

Texture Overlay Tutorial

I seem to get a lot of email asking how to use textures, so I thought I would make a short and simple tutorial aimed at beginners.  Click on the download link below for the tutorial which when downloaded will be larger and clearer than shown.

Etched Dark and Rustic Tones Texture Set

Example on how I used:

1. Opened image, which becomes background layer.

2. Opened texture "Etched-1" which becomes layer 1, then set the layer mode to "Color Burn" at 62% opacity.

3. Duplicated background image and sharpened, which I set above layer 1, I set the layer mode at "Light Color" and the opacity at 35%.

4. I open and add the texture "Etched-2" which now becomes Layer 2 which sets above the background copy. I then set the layer mode to "Overlay" and the opacity at 71%.

5. I again make a duplicate of the background layer which becomes background copy 2, and set it as the top layer and set the layer mode to "Multiply" and the  opacity at 26%.

6. I now feel satisfied with my results, so I flatten all layers and save.


 Hope this is of some help and the textures are of some small use.
