test easter island head moia
freebie if anyone fancies a go at a statue head for a basic texturing effect.
Layers are one of the best things anyone can learn in a graphics program.
I've removed the background.
The white background enables you to do all sorts of creative things.
You need a prog that can do layers and blending modes for layers.
DL this as the basic building block.
You have to DL one of the textures as well or get one of your own.
Select all on the texture pic and edit/ copy.
Open up the head /paste.
You should see the texture and nothing else but don't worry.
You should have background layer and layer 1, 2 layers in all or it doesn't work.
Click layers/ view layers.
The top layer is the one you change.
Change layer blending mode from normal to overlay and play around with the opacity slider.
Feel free to play around with the blending modes too.
You can flatten the image to a single layer when you're happy with it.
I save my files as TIFF Format if there are a lot of changes because it's a non lossy format and finally save as jpeg for uploading on here.
A background sky would be another layer.
The sole purpose of layers is to change something from the original as Obamas passport neatly illustrates :)
