Fee Ripples and Frosted Glass Overlays for Photoshop, Elements and Lightroom
Today I have to share 11 very cool overlays: Ripples and Frosted Glass which can be used in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and Lightroom. With this overlays you can make any image to look interesting and to stand out. If you want to spend some time to play with blending modes in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements then you may end up with some effects for which you are wondering how others are achieving them.
Here is my advice: try to combine 2 or more overlays with different blending modes: Multiply, Screen, Overlay, Soft Light, Hard Light, Vivid Light. Use keyboard shortcuts to quickly change blending modes or record simple action and change Playback Options so you can watch some kind of slide–show and decide which blending is the best. Move the image on top, in between overlays and change blending mode for it. Again, you can use keyboard shortcuts to move and rearrange layers. It is worth to spend some time to experiment, but also and to learn few keyboard shortcuts.
