I created this texture specifically to use on my stock photo of this German Shepherd running in the snow. It is the perfect texture to use with your winter photos where there are sunlight, shadows and snow present. I placed the lighter side of the texture on the side of the dog where the sun was hitting, leaving the darker side with the blue tones on the side of the dog where the shadow is showing. I masked away most of the snowy background from behind the dog, and gently masked away some of the snow foreground to blend it with the creamy colors of the bottom of the texture. I then duplicated the texture layer and placed it on top, setting it to multiply at 50%. This brought out some of the details of the texture and made the color a bit richer. Then I duplicated the texture layer again, placed it on top, and set it to soft light at 100%. I desaturated the soft light layer completely, which kept the colors of the original texture in place.
