Adding Texture to your images

Click on the image for a bigger view.

Here is an image I shot and processed today using lots of texture! :) My buddy Grace once again. This is what happens when I am bored on a Saturday afternoon. LOL!

Do you like the texture look but you just aren't sure what to do? Well, Jodi at MCP Actions has a link on her blog to some fantastic free high resolution textures. And to top that off... she had a video showing you how to apply them to your images. (that Jodi is so cool!) So check it out!

And don't forget to tell me hello from time to time. I am starting to wonder if anyone is reading my ramblings? hmmmmm.... so few comments this time of year. Hope everyone is doing well!

{{Hugs all around!}}

EDIT: Meg wanted to know where my textures came from.
The main ones I used on this came from Nicole Van. I use a lot of Ghostbones textures also. I went to add the link but it looks like he has deleted his entire Deviant Art page? :( They were fantastic!! So if you downloaded some from my previous postings. Lucky you!!

Hi Kimi,

Thanks for the great tips on the textures. That's so ironic that you mentioned MCP Actions, I just bought the Complete Workflow Actions a few days ago. Really lovely. Hope you have a great holiday!

P.S. Grace is so adorable, as always. She is the cutest neighbor ever.

Hugs,
Jonni

This is so cool and I do read all of your information. Did you enjoy the snow this past week? It was so beautiful. I live in Baton Rouge, LA.

Meg said...

I love the stuff you share. I was wondering which textures you applied to this.

Dana said...

Oh, yes, I read your every post. This has been a hectic month and promises to get even more so. Thank you for your insights.

Hi from South Louisiana,
You are so talented and great inspiration. I have lots of questions because I'm new to this and can't make anything work. Any resources for help?
Merry Christmas

Well, heck... I didn't know people were really showing up! LOL!!

Doris, the snow was so cool!

Mary Ann, keep at it. It has a way of falling together.

Anke!! oh, I have missed everyone at JS. So glad to see you are still hanging around my blog.

Kristie dear, Is this what you had in mind?? I hope so. :) She is getting really good at following directions. Well, except for that one I got where she is sticking her tongue out at me. LOL!

Thank you Kimi for sharing your talent and knowledge. I truly appreciate all your posts, and you inspire me to be creative with my photos. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I'm here reading your ramblings - which really aren't ramblings! This week I was playing around with textures and I'm never quite sure what i'm doing so thanks for posting the links and this darling example!

Heather said...

where did ghostbones go I wonder? I loved his textures. :(

Joanie said...

I love this Kimi! Great photo of Grace and great textures! Your are right about ghostbones. I was trying to credit them for some textures I'd used for my POTD and the whole account was gone :(

Hi Kimi! I'm always here! I love your ramblings and your awesome photos. I have 500+ emails sitting in my inbox cause I haven't had time to even look at them since before Thanksgiving. But when I saw your name in my inbox I had to scoot over and see your latest creation. Sorry if I haven't posted comments lately .... real life keeps interrupting my fun .... but I ALWAYS read your posts.

Merry Christmas my friend!

Kimi,
You are so talented and I love looking at your blog. I so wish my 3 children were your neighbors :) ..you do such a GREAT job. I so want to learn just half of your talent. I am going to try and take Candice's photo class in March over at JS. Any other ideas for teaching myself the art of photography?
Have a MERRY Christmas!!
Stacy
