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 . . . 17 June 2014 . . . free & easy

For this eDition of Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen, Kim gave us this:



          Next weeks theme ....Tuesday, June 17th
          free & easy.

It always takes me a while to decide what I want to do for these free & easy editions of Texture Tuesday. I like to try new things with Photoshop. I had recently watched a video by Julieanne Kost that showed how to straighten tilted portions of a photo. Julieanne used Puppet Warp to do this. As I watched the video, my mind started thinking about how I could use Puppet Warp to create artistic versions of some of my photos. Puppet Warp, I believe, was added to Photoshop in CS5. I do not know if it is in PS Elements. I am using Photoshop CS6 on a Mac.
I started with this photo.

And, ended with this image.

If you would like to see what I did, click on the READ MORE >>>>>


I started by opening my flower photo in Photoshop. My camera gives me an image that is about 9 x 12-inch at 300 ppi. I kept my image that size.

I then copied the layer using command / control + J to give me a copy of the image above the background layer.

On this copy, I used Puppet Warp, Edit > Puppet Warp.

Here is a 4-1/2 minute video showing you how to use Puppet Warp.




After using Puppet Warp, the image was transformed to this.


Next, I duplicated the background image and put that above the Puppet Warped layer. Then, using Free Transform, command / control + T, I increased the image size so that only the central flower was showing.



Then I changed the Layer blend mode to Difference and lowered the Opacity to 40%.



I thought the image was now a little too dark. So I clicked on the button at the bottom of the Layers Panel to add a Levels Adjustment Layer. I moved the right slider to 190 and the middle slider to 1.18. This brightened up the image.



I closed the Levels panel. Then I double clicked to the right of the layer name to open the Layer Style panel. In the Blend If, This Layer section, I split the left slider using the option / alt key. I set the left half of the slider to 67 and the right half to 163. I left the right slider at 255. I did not change any of the Underlying Layer sliders. 



Then I clicked OK. And I now have this.



Next, at the top pf the layers stack, I brought in Kim's texture kk_red. Here it is at Normal mode and 100% Opacity.



Then I changed the layer blend mode to Soft Light and decreased the Opacity to 30%.



Next,I brought in Kim's texture kk_iAm. Here it is at Normal mode and Opacity100%.




Then I changed the blend mode to Divide and kept Opacity 100%.



Now I have a nice bright flower. Next, I brought in Kim's magic texture kk_wonderfulmagic_stars. Here it is at Normal mode and 100% Opacity.

(All three of these textures were transformed, Free Transform, to include the whole texture in the image area.)



But, now when you change the blend mode to Screen. look what happens. The Opacity is 100%.



And, that is how I created this artistic view of my flower using Puppet Warp and several of Kim's textures.



I hope you enjoyed seeing how you can use the Puppet Warp to transpose some of your images into something more artistic to use in your scrapbooking.

Please visit Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen to see what others have done for their free & easy eDition.


That's all for now.

Live life fully and enjoy.

Earl

Beautiful image Earl, amazing editing process.

Barbara said...

Great edits and the end result is just gorgeous!

Barbara said...

Love all the wonderful texture over this Earl

Dotti said...

Another masterpiece! Says one-texture Dotti here. It's funny, I stack textures with my phone apps but tend to be conservative with CS6. But I always enjoy seeing what you've done and you've done it again, Earl! That's a good thing.

Pat said...

The final image is beautiful!

Sheila said...

Wonderful process! I've never heard of Puppet Warp - learn something new every time I stop by your site!

Sharon said...

Wonderful, Earl! The black "magic" texture gives the background a nice dark contrast against the orange of the flower. Great texture editing!

June Caedmon said...

Very interesting, Earl! and I love your final artwork - nicely done!

Rob said...

Oh my goodness, Earl, this is absolutely lovely. you make me want to get the full version of photoshop. Thank you for your excellent tutorial.

Christine K. said...

Prairie Jill said...

What an interesting effect! And, as always, a great result.

CATHY said...

Anki-itte said...
