Today here we are learning how to use overlays in Photoshop. It is not essential to aim your own texture in order to start the workflow-

Step 1:

Choose the photo you want to alter with the help of Photoshop overlays. Choose a portrait or a picture where there is a lot of space to confirm the effect. In such a way the picture will be more beautiful.

Step 4:

Add a mask; select a soft black brush, set the Flow to 15% so that it does not eliminate the texture too much. After that lightly draw the area where you want the texture. For example, face and hands.

Step 5:

Switch the brush to white color, if you want to return the area. Then this will allow you to return the part of the overlay that you removed.
