I had upload troubles yesterday and wasn't able to post, so here are TWO textures: 07/10/2015 "Hot July Morning" and 07/11/2015 "Incoming Summer Storm". Above you'll see my two example images. These are zoo photos, and they both had unattractive backgrounds. Not anymore! I masked away their backgrounds, blending these big cats with the textures. On the cheetah, I duplicated the texture and placed it on top in overlay mode, masking some of that layer off his eyes and face. On the lion, I also duplicated the texture and added it on top, this time using hard light layer mode and masking some of that layer off his face. Now my two previously boring zoo photos have warmth, energy and excitement!
