Just wanted to show you some textures I was able to easily add to my thunder gray images.
Those look fabulous! If you haven't already, would you mind sharing your techniques to adding the textures?
Love that paper Esti.
Very cool! I think I like 1 and 2 best since it's not over skin, though. But cool effects! You have me sold now, I want some of that paper!

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
Erica - it's really quite simple. I open the texture file and drag it on to the image as a new layer. Transform it and enlarge it until it covers the whole image. Change the layer blending mode to multiply and adjust the opacity to your liking. Then you have two options. If you want the texture/color to go over the subject as well, lasso all areas of skin and run a blur filter (average) over it so you get the color but not the texture. If you don't want the subject to have that color, mask out the entire subject.
that is so cool! I can't wait until we get rid of our carpet so I can move to paper.

Thanks for explaining, Esti! I was doing mine pretty much the same way, but wasn't changing the layer to multiply.
