Tag Archives: how to use textures to improve your photos

Jan 23: 366-23 Tree Trunk

I was fascinated by the tree trunks at the Canyon RV Park.  This one is from the same outing during the Earthdog Trials in Anaheim, October 2011.  I love so much about this one – the smoothness, the texture, the color:  it all works together for me, opening up a world of possibilities for it’s use as a texture overlay in Photoshop (or whichever graphics program you use for your creations).

Texture 366-23 Tree Trunk

In using this image, I chose a cute Dachshund from the same event, relaxing on his mom’s lap before his wild run to ground after the rat scent.  I used a soft light at 60% opacity this time.  I think I like how it added just a schootch (technical term, y’know) more interest to the background behind the Doxie’s head.

Please do post links to projects where YOU have used this provided texture and tell us how you tweaked it to fit your needs.  Feedback is welcomed – leave comments and questions and I’ll see if I can come up with some answers! All textures are available for personal or commercial use. They are NOT allowed to be resold or to be claimed as your own.  Just click through for the larger size file, right-click that one and save the texture to your own computer.  My sample uses of the texture are not available for any use.

Now – if you’ve gone wild with a texture and just LOVE it … a small donation showing that love sure would be appreciated (but is not mandatory).   Just go to PayPal.com and send your donation to DogBreedz (at) yahoo.com.


Happy Texturing!
