Want to create some really neat special effects and give texture to a photo?
I used a photograph of a sunflower field and Photoshop's layer Blend Modes to create this photo.
Simply add a layer with a texture above your image layer. Then, change the textured layer's blend mode to Overlay, Soft Light or Hard Light to get the effect as shown on the left.
Want to see my video on how I did this and learn a little more about blending modes?
