Photoshop Elements: Fabric Fold Textures

What’s better than fabric? Well, maybe not better, but certainly in the ball-park …. Fabric Textures of course! And high resolution fabric textures at that.

The Thinkdesign Blog has kindly made available for free a fabulous high resolution “Fabric Fold” texture pack and you can download them here (sorry, this link is no longer valid. Because these are high resolution images, this is a huge file so it might take a while to download. They also have various other high resolution fabric textures which you can find here (sorry, this link is no longer valid).

How do you use a texture?
I like to blend photos, usually a main image and a texture.

Open up your images in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

Drag one image on top of the other. I’ve dragged the texture image on top of the ladies dress, and then I applied a blending mode to the top texture image. I used the Difference blending mode.

You can get different results by simply changing the blending mode. For this one I set the blending mode to Hue and the result is a lovely color change along the fabric folds.
