The Daily Texture for 03/10/2015
In the second image below, I took a different approach with no masking. Since the bird was photographed on a cloudy day, his background was a light, light gray...almost white. I placed the texture on top of him and set it to multiply at 100%. I masked some of this texture layer off the bird, as the multiply setting made him too dark for my liking. Then I duplicated that layer and placed it on top, setting it to soft light at 100%. This brightened things up a little, but it was overlay saturated. I desaturated the soft light layer completely, which kept the color tones from the original texture layer intact, but it added the brightness of the soft light layer that I wanted in the image.
