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 . . . 22 July 2014 . . . free & easy

This is a free & easy edition of Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.

I was looking through my photos to see what to use for this Texture Tuesday. I came across the photos I took at Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha, Nebraska, in March 2010, during their Secret Garden exhibit. I selected this image to use. These beautiful flowers were in a large planter that was in the shape of a swan. I have cropped the image so that only some of the flowers are in the image.



Then I saw this photo and thought that it would be nice if I could use the color of this image on the image of the orange flowers.



And, that is what I did. And, of course, I also used two of Kim's textures. I ended up with this.



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


I opened my first image in Photoshop CS6.



I duplicated the layer, command / control - J. I did this just in case I wanted to go  back to the original image.



Now, the method I am going to use requires that both images that are to be used need to be open in Photoshop. So I opened the second image as its own document. You can see that it is on its own tab.



I will use Match Color to take the color of the second image and put it into the first image. I go back to my first image. In the menu I go to Image > Adjustments > Match Color.


This opens the Match Color dialog. In the top part of the dialog you can play around with the sliders if you wish, or you can jet leave them the way they are. Experiment if you wish. I just left them where they are. In the bottom part of the dialog, in the Source, you want to select the image from which you want to use the color.


I clicked on the drop down menu and selected the image with the reddish-purple flowers.


After I select the image, it shows up in the little image box. And, if you have Preview checked, you see what the image will look like.


Then, click OK to close the dialog. Notice that it is on the layer that you duplicated from the original. If you don't want or need to keep the original, you can just do this without duplicating the original layer and have it all on the one layer.


But, for my taste, this put too much of the color on the image. So. I changed the layer blend mode to Color and reduced the Opacity to 40%. This looks much better to me.


Now I brought in Kim's texture kk_simplethings. Here it is at Normal mode and 100% Opacity. I thought the browns would add to my colors.


I then changed the mode to Multiply and reduced Opacity to 20%.


Next I brought in Kim's texture kk_scriptededges. Here it is at Normal mode and 100% Opacity. I love the little bit of writing in the upper left corner.


Then I changed the mode to Screen and kept Opacity at 100%.


And, that is my final outcome for the image. I love the additional reds brought in from using Color Match and the blending with Kim's textures.

And this is my final image.



I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did. Maybe you'll try Color Match on some of you images.


That's all for now.

Live life fully and enjoy.
