How to use Textures & Overlays in Photoshop Elements
Step 1: Open Your Image.
Step 2: Select “Expert” Mode
Step 3: Select File > Place.
Step 3: Select a Texture/Overlay & Click “Place”.
Step 4: Position the overlay, then click the check mark to place the overlay.
Step 5: Change blend mode to suit your needs. We suggest MULTIPLY, OVERLAY or SCREEN.
NOTE: If you are using a PNG overlay, as opposed to a JPEG overlay (such as our Leaf & Branch Overlays), you do not need to use a blend mode since the PNG files are working with transparent pixels. Simply place the image and that's all there is to it :).
TO NON-DESTRUCTIVELY REMOVE PORTIONS OF THE TEXTURE/OVERLAY SIMPLY:
Step 1: Create a Layer Mask (Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All)
Step 2: Using a soft, black brush paint over the areas on the layer mask that you would like to erase.
