Texture Tip & Talk

Maybe you have noticed… I’m a big fan of using textures in my images.

Not quite ready to let go of summer…

If you’re new to textures and not quite sure how to get started, the people at Topaz have made it very easy.   So I don’t mind sharing with you that they are offering  Texture Effects at a discount starting today!

Texture Tip:  If you’re like me and already have a pretty sizable texture library, Texture Effects (TE) lets you upload your own textures into the plug-in.  This makes TE a great tool to quickly and easily see what effects different textures will have and the direction your image is heading.    Texture Effects has greatly improved the editing ability straight from the plug-in too.  Which, admittedly, I’m still getting used to… the image above is equal parts working with textures in PS and TE.  But, hey, whatever works… right?

psst… if you’re still not sure, just check out a trial version of Texture Effects  and have some fun.  Once you have had a chance to check it out, come back and let me know what you think. I love talking textures.

Until next time,
Maria
