Photo Editing: Texture Layers

I’m not sure how well you can see it but this image has been edited using two texture layers to give it an artistic painterly canvas look.  Adding texture layers to an image can be an interesting way to get more creative with your images.  I did my layer masks in Photoshop but they can also be done in Photoshop Elements.  Here is a video tutorial showing how it can be done in Elements and here is one for Photoshop.

Some photographers use texture layers to change a plain portrait backdrop into something entirely different without having to buy another backdrop like this example from Gavin Hoey and Adorama here.

Textures can be purchased online, some are free to download and of course you can always make your own.  Since we’re all pretty much inside for the time being why not experiment with photo editing!  Have you tried this technique before?  Do you think you’d like to give it a go?  If you feel inspired to do so from this post I do hope you share what you create.
