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.

Beyond Layers with Kim Klassen . . . Day 103

For today, Kim had us use the same tulips from Day 102. The photo was taken from  different viewpoint and with a light background. Kim gave us the following challenge.


Today's Challenge
Well, we played with the black background.... now let's play with the light background... Same tulips, different POV and lots of light..... 
Show me what you've got lovelies.... 

Here is the original tulip photo.



Step 1.  I opened the image in Photoshop CS6. It came in as a Background layer.



Step 2.  I converted the Background layer into a Smart Object by right clicking on the layer to open the context dialog menu and selected Convert to Smart Object.


  
And the layer becomes a Smart Object. You can see that it is by the small icon in the lower right corner of the layer thumbnail.



Step 3.  With the layer now being a Smart Object, I can use Smart Filters on the layer. The filter will show under the layer. I want to use the Crosshatch filter. I went up to the Filter menu and selected Filter Gallery.



This opens the Filter Gallery. I selected Brush Strokes and Crosshatch. In the Crosshatch dialog, I selected Stroke Length = 13, Sharpness = 9, and Strength = 3. This gave me a nice crosshatch over the image.


Then I clicked OK to have the crosshatch applied to my image. Since the layer is a Smart Object, the filter shows up under the layer and the filter is editable if I want to go back and change it.



Step 4.  Next I wanted to bring in one of Kim's textures. I used kk-red. Here it is at Normal mode and 100% Opacity. I thought that the texture's color would blend in nicely with the color of the tulip. And I like the lighter border around it.



Then I changed the blend mode to Linear Burn and decreased the Opacity to 80%.


I am very pleased with this result and it is what I ended with. Here it is.



I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did with this image.


Live life joyously and have as much fun as you can.


Earl
