Video Tutorial – {using textures} plus more free textures


Featured Products

UPDATE: Please enjoy the video.  The designer of the textures shown below no longer has a flickr account, as this post was from summer of 2008, so these are not able to be downloaded. BUT you can find amazing textures all over the internet. Here is a blog post from late 2009 where I list links to 1000’s of textures. Hopefully most are still active for you.

A few weeks ago I had a guest photographer on my blog sharing some textures.  I promised to let you know how to apply them and get the most from them.  Here is a video showing you how to use textures on your photos.  Know that every photo will not look good with a texture applied.  So like everything in post processing, use them sparingly and appropriately.

Also, before I show the video, I need to let you know something GREAT!  Another amazing photographer, Angelo (ground*floor) on flickr has generously let me use his textures in my tutorial. And even better has given me permission for MCP Blog readers to go and download them.

Click on each collection below to go to his site and download the textures. They are incredible.  Click here or on the tutorial box to view the video.  It may take a minute to load so be patient.

    Thanks once again for another great tutorial! Do you know if you have to download each texture separately? I haven’t used textures. I am so excited!

    You all are welcome. Yes – you need to download each one. So pick just the ones you like most and know you will use. Or bookmark it and go back as you need things for specific photos.

    How generous, thanks Angelo! Great tutorial Jodi.

    Crud, I hate typos. I meant Jodie 😉

    The textures are fabulous, and what a great resource! I am having a problem though, the largest size is still quite small and only covers a fraction of my image. I am wondering how other people are handling these textures for their images. I’d like to hear what others are doing with it – thanks!

  14. admin on June 20, 2008 at 7:50 am

    There are different sizes you can load – click on original. Wait for it to load. Right click and save. That way you can see you are getting the highest resolution offered for each.Hope that helps.Jodi

    Great tutorial! I’ve already started playing with some of my images.

  16. Lucky Red Hen on June 25, 2008 at 2:43 pm

    You are stupendous! Thank you, thank you, thank YOU!!!

  17. Therese Marie on June 27, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    WOW thanks so much, these are great.

  18. Cynthia McIntyre on June 29, 2008 at 12:29 pm

    Thank you for providing this info– I had been trying to determine how this was done after seeing another photographers work and you made it look so simple! I just found this website and find it very helpful.

  19. Jovana on July 10, 2008 at 4:21 pm

    PERFECT! I too have seen other photographers using textures.. and I couldn’t figure out how to apply them. Thank you for the tutorial!!

  20. Luis Barcelí_ on July 29, 2008 at 10:07 am

  21. Leaha Bourgeois on June 24, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    I am trying to access the textures and I am unable to do so. Can you help me get to these? Thanks!GREAT work

  22. Debby on October 28, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    Hi Jodi. Went to download the textures today and am getting a message “Private page”. Do you know if he changed access to them?

  23. Michelle K. on February 25, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    Hi Jodi! I, too, am getting the same message as Debby was when trying to access ground*floor’s page. Is there any chance he has now restricted your blog readers access? I just watched the tutorial and was so looking forward to downloading these textures. Thanks!!

  24. Teresa on March 20, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Me too – is there any other place I can get those textures?

  25. Brian Allison on April 25, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Ground*floor on Flickr does not exist anymore.
