Friday Freebie No.2
This time the grungy border has a more industrial feel with peeling paint and screw heads. The centre of the image has a smoother painted look which makes it perfect for for blending with other photos.
If you like your photos to have grungy feel you’ll love this grunge photo frame. This is a very high resolution file of 4666px by 3500px in size, which makes it perfect for print use or down sampling for use with your web based images.
In the photo above I added a colour image as a new layer above the grunge border. Combining the two images is as simple as changing the layer blending mode to Multiply. You might need to use the dodge and burn tools and a levels adjustment layer at the top of the layer stack might be a good idea.
I’d also suggest using images which have lots of sky, large areas of simple colour/tone or lots of nice blurred parts in the photo. Basically a photo with lots of fine detail tends not to blend so well with a textured template like this.
You can download the 5mb high res file from my Adobe Creative Cloud page (absolutely no sign up required) by either clicking on the photo or by following this link:
If you do use the template and create an image that you share on Facebook, Flickr, 500px, Google+ etc. then remember to leave the link in the comments below. Enjoy!
