Every year, our family tries to make it down to a place called Oak Creek. The leaves are beautiful and it is such a fun time hiking with the kids. I feel really blessed to live in such a great state where we can do so many wonderful outdoor activities.
I took some great pictures of the kids and our little hiking adventure. To make them extra special, I used some of the texture overlays I received from Life-n-Reflection. This month I received the Ferris Wheel textures and the 1907 textures. (Click the link to download the 1907 texture for free from Kristy’s blog.)
This first picture is of my husband and kids crossing the bridge. You can see the original, with no editing. In the second photo I added the tiltawhirl overlay from the Ferris Wheel texture collection. I lowered the opacity to 30% after dragging the overlay on top of my picture.
This next photo is one I took of the creek. It is really beautiful there. And the weather was perfect that day for a hike. The first photo is the original and in the second one I added the free 1907 overlay. This time I lowered the opacity to 25%.
The last picture I am sharing is off the last few apples left on one of the apples trees we saw on our hike. On the second photo I added the fortune teller overlay from the Ferris Wheels texture collection, lowering the opacity to 40%.
It feels good to finally be learning my way around Photoshop. It definitely takes some practice, but adding overlays to your pictures is a quick easy way to dress up your photos.
Tell me, have you used overlays before?
