I am thinking to provide Distressed effect to some images of my girlfriend :-) but I have not tried this before..

Has someone tried this?? What texture and procedure should I follow so that I can make a perfect effect.

Can you post an example of the style you're looking for? I have no idea what you mean by "distressed"....

I think she is referring to using textures. Just Google "Photoshop textures". Overlay one of those images on top of your picture and play with the blend mode, opacity and masking.

What programs are you using? Texture overlays and a little creative use of brushes will work in photoshop.

Hi,
I have got an example to show the effect. Please have a look.

Also, do we have any photoshop actions available to provide these kind of distressed effect.

If you dont own that image, you need to link to it instead of posting it. Forum rules. Thats just a texture overlay. Just do a google search for photoshop textures, and paste it into a new layer and play with the opacity.

You can get a lot of free textures from the "Resources & Stock Images" section on DeviantArt. Just search for a keyword like "grunge" or "paper" or "crumpled" - and don't forget to click "SHOW MORE" at the bottom.

Add it as a new layer in Photoshop, change the blend mode to something appropriate (I like Multiply), Transform it to fit appropriately, pull down the Opacity if necessary, mask out certain areas if necessary.

If you can still find the NIK collection they have a nice addon that does distressed looks w/ light leaks, textures and such. Analog FX is the name of the module.

Also look for "grunge" effects. I think that term will get you closer to what you want.

AS well as the apology it would also be good form to remove the image that is not yours from the Forum's server, and replace it with a link. Otherwise a mod is likely to do the removing for you.

If a mod hasn't gotten to it yet, after nearly 4 years.....
