What's great about Photoshop is there really is no right and wrong way to use it. As users we get to play and experiment with effects until we come up with something that looks cool to us. In this tutorial, we'll take a look at using Photoshop's blending modes to apply a simple photographic effect.

这一步是可选的。如前所述,我想申请一个对象,一壶清茶。所以,我需要选择的对象。 ,如果你想申请在你的照片太影响到一个对象,你还需要选择的对象。虽然有时,我将要应用的效果,整个图像,所以在这种情况下,这一步是没有必要。

Photoshop certainly has no shortage of selection options, so use whichever method you're most comfortable with. You could use the Lasso tools, Quick Mask mode, Color Range, or my longtime favorite, the Pen tool.

To make things easier, in the Layers panel, hide the layer that contains your texture. Once you create your selection, be sure to turn the texture layer's visibility back on, and make sure that layer is selected.





Now for the fun part -- messing around with Photoshop's blending modes to get the effect we want. In the Layers panel, make sure the texture layer is still selected; then try selecting an option from the Blending Mode menu. There's no right or wrong here, so have fun trying out the different blending modes. What's more, try adjusting the texture layer's Opacity too. Blending modes and opacity tend to work together to produce different effects, so try to arrive at something that looks cool for your image.

I tend to gravitate towards my favorites: Overlay, Hard Light, Multiply, and Darken to get me started.
