Showcase of 20 Photos that Utilize Textures Well

In photography today, texturing is beginning to develop into a well-used practice in photo processing. Looks can range from distressed paper to the addition of grains and even words. This can be achieved by overlaying the subject photo with a textured image. Contrast and blending is all up to the photographer or artist, and can be edited using opacity levels and blending modes. The following photographs are the result of texture processing.


As seen in the above artists’ work, the extent of a photo’s texturing can be subtle or dramatic. A single, well-adjusted overlay can be placed to produce one effect while many layers can be combined for a visually pleasing collage of textures and grains.

    I like the grungy style of texture, it really gives a more in-depth attribute to the photo. Excellent edits!
