Friday Freebee

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Friday Freebee, so let me correct that right now…

If you like your photos to have gungy feel you’ll love this grunge photo frame. This is a high resolution file of 4000px by 3100px in size, which makes it perfect for both web and print use. The canvas texture has lots of mottling and even a small rip, all of which was there in the original photo.


In the photo above I dropped on a mono image and changed then layer blending mode to Hard Light. This template works best either with black and white images but can also work with colour images, especially if you desaturate the template back to black and white.

I’d also suggest using images which have lots of sky, large areas of simple colour/tone or lots 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 here

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!
