Texturizing a picture

Just playing around with some textures. I have never liked the result I get from pictures when using photoshop textures. My results usually are on the tacky side. With that said as Brooklyn and I were exploring the other day I was overwhelmed by the textures on all the different trees. Here is my first example.

Started out with a cute picture. I added some contrast, took out some red from her face, and increased the vibrancy.

Here is my texture I used. Pumped up the vibrancy to bring out the gold.

Here is the finished product. I think it turned out pretty good.


  1. Hey, that turned out really well! It has a great artsy/dramatic feel to it.

  2. That looks awesome, Tassi. She sure is a pretty little thing.

  3. Tassi,

    Your texture looks great! Have you ever played around with the brushes in Photoshop? You can make your own and do some cool stuff to your photos. Let me know if you need info on the brushes. You probably already know all that but, if not, I would be happy to show you.
