Using Gradients With Photos

Here are some techniques for making papers like these which use a photo and a gradient.

See here for beginner gradient tips. In this tutorial I will use this texture.

On a new layer make your gradient.

Now bring in your photo/texture layer above the gradient and change the blending option. I've set mine to "soft light" and left the opacity at 100%.

Different photos may need different blending options, or even a combination which you can do by duplicating the texture layer and applying a different blending option.


will have to try this soon. thanks for the tutorial.

I've put gradients on top of photos before, but I didn't think of reversing the order and blending the photo down into the gradient. Cool! Thank you!

Also, thanks for the link to the texture pack. I don't know how I missed this one before! Great textures!
