Adding a Textured Overlay in Photoshop

In flower photography, post processing has some advantages. In this video, pro photographer Tony Sweet turns editor and shows you how to use textured overlays to enhance your images. On the computer screen, he brings up a photo of a dragonfly with an extremely blurry flower as a background. On a separate layer, he imports a macro image of blurred dew drops and lays it over the dragonfly image, then lowers the opacity so that it blends. To enhance the dragonfly colors, he creates a mask and paints back in the dragonfly at 55% opacity. The creative implementation of a textured overlay can add drama to an image.
