Hard light, let’s see if I were to adjust the opacity of the texture layer on hard light. No, I don’t quite like it. This is a very experimental thing when you’re fooling around with these blending modes, darker color that gives us a very, very odd effect. Linear burn, I do like that but it’s too dark, so let’s adjust the opacity. Let’s drag it beneath the multiply layer, and we’re now multiplying the effect of the textured layer which is normal. Linear burn, not quite, so, I think, if this were my project, I would be ending it right here because I kind of like this effect, I have my texture layers set to overlay at 57%, my multiply layer on multiply at 66%, and my working copy layer set to screen at 100%. And I think that gives us a pretty good aged feel.
But let’s say that my texture were a black and white color, on a black and white layer. I’ll do is the color that I once had, because you notice before this black and white image was taking the color of the paper in this texture layer. But luckily there is a blending mode to solve our problem. I’m going to add a new layer on top of the stock, I’m going to name it to color, and let’s see let’s find a nice color. Okay, I’ve picked a color hex code 7A462A and with the paint bucket tool I’m going to fill it in, and you see I’m set to normal at 100% so, this color layer has completely blocked out everything else. So, I’m going to switch my blending mode here to color and we color in our image, but I think this effect is way too intense. So, I’m just going to adjust the opacity of it, and I get a nice, almost sepia look. It’s not quite black and white but it’s not quite red.
And I think that’s going to be the end of it for me tonight, but if you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line. I will be more than happy to answer your questions, but keep learning, keep fooling with Photoshop and tonight, keep fooling with your blending modes, because I guarantee you’ll come up with something that you’re going to use as your signature effect in your photography if you’re a photographer. So, good night and keep learning.
