rebecca, the rose photos rock my socks!  Beautiful!

I've been playing around with applying textures to photos.  There's a blog I go to and the guy was hyping a big textures tute he was going to publish, but when he finally did, it turned out that he was charging $300 for it!   Shocked  So I decided to try and figure it out by myself.  What it looks like the guy does is take pictures of textures, and then just adds them as a layer in Photoshop and makes the textured layer transparent.  I happen to take pictures of textures all the time - especially tree bark and branches and stuff.  So I started going through my photos and putting anything I think I can use as a texture in a separate folder, and then gave actually texturizing some of my photos a shot.  I wound up using a combo of my own textures and also the "render fibers" and "render clouds" feature that's already in Photoshop.

Here are my first attempts (clicking on any of the images should take you to its Flickr page, where you can get the bigger version):





Then I realized the joy of cutting out the focus area of the photograph and layering it onto the textured background.  So in this one, I textured up the entire tire photo, but the tire seemed to fade into the background with the more texture crap I put on it.  So at the end, I re-opened the original image, cut out the tire, layered it on top of my new textured image, and messed with the saturation and stuff so it went with the background, but still stood out as the focal object in the picture.



I did the same with this picture (it's an old pic of my husband from back before he was my husband!  Smiley.  I texturized the photo, then pasted Travis into it from the original photo, and then I added a few more layers of texture to bring the whole image together.  Here's the before and after:



And here's the last one I just got done making.  This is a scan of a 35 mm photo I took in January, 1999:



And here's the super saturated, textured result:



I've never been that skilled at playing with Layers in Photoshop, and I still don't know a lot of what can be done, but I know the Eraser tool is my new favorite thing.  It lets you erase part of your top layer, so you can see the layer underneath.  So in the barn picture, I just drew a really sloppy outline of the barn, pasted that into my textured picture, and then used the eraser tool to clean up areas that I wanted to be textured (bits of sky and ground and non-barn things).  I heart the Eraser!

I was doing a nature photography assignment for my photo class and these were just a few that I took. They're not the greatest photo's I've taken but I like the life in them. They were all taken with a Canon SD1000.
