Photoshop Tutorial: Removing Textures Using Photoshop Layer Masks & Custom Healing Brushes (Part 2)
As promised, here is Part Two of my "Using Textures to Enhance Your Portrait and Fine Art" tutorial series!
When I began creating my most recent series, "Burdens of a White Dress," it was really important to me to be specific about how and where the textures were applied.
For the most part I only wanted the texture to be applied to the background.
In this video I show you a couple of different ways you can achieve that result.
The first way is to use Layer Masks. This method can work great if your textures aren't changing the overall exposure of your image. But if you have multiple textures on various blending mode, especially soft light, multiply or overlay, you'll likely end up having a few textures that are effecting the brightness or contrast of your photograph.
So, in order to remove textures without affecting exposure I like to use a custom healing brush.
Take a watch and see how I use both methods, and how to create that custom brush:
Very competent and clear instruction, Jen. Creating the 50% neutral gray mask to tone down the texture on the skin was a new trick for me. Thanks.
