Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen June 7, 2011

This week's Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen has to do with words. I wasn't sure what I wanted to work on. I finally settled on using a quotation from Albert Einstein and then that brought me to using the photograph of my High School. The photo was taken back in 1947. I can't believe that the photo was taken over 60 years ago. But, I was into photography even at that time. Good old black and white film.

This is how my photo looked prior to my doing anything to it other than a little cropping to get it into an 8.5 X 11 inch format.

And, through the miracle of Adobe Photoshop CS4 and using three of Kim's textures. this is how I finished.

This is what I did to get from there to here.

A levels adjustment was made. And, then a sepia tone was added to the image. And, a High Pass filter was used to sharpen the image over the tree area.

Then, the three Kim Klassen filters, Chamomile, Sweettart, and Warmsun were used at various blending modes and opacity. A layer mask was used on each of the texture layers to keep most of the texture off the tree.

Then, the text was added. I used Century Gothic. And, the finally, I added the Texture Gallery edge effect to the photo to give it a border.

And, that is how it was done.

If you haven't been to Kim Klassen's site before, you really need to visit with her. She is a remarkable woman.  She also has some very interesting and enjoyable and informative classes to offer.

I enjoyed this Texture Tuesday Challenge and am looking forward to next week's. 

Until next time, enjoy your photography and scrapbooking.
