Check out the picture in the link. How would one go about creating that reallg good effect on a picture? I'm sure it has a name but I don't know what it's called but it makes a photograph look like it has a texture.
Thanks for any help that's given

I think its the 'fresco' filter in photoshop. If not go through the various filters and I'm sure you will find it. John
Its a second layer overlayed on the first. Ask the photographer how he did it. PAul
Yeah, just looks like a picture of a rough old wall stuck over the top ( with some desaturation on the underlying image and stuff too )
You could probably achieve the same thing in camera with a double exposure ( if your digital/film camera can do it ), or in the darkroom if you have ability..
Thanks guys, a layer over the top was what I initially thought, in the past I have tried doing that with not much success (well not as much as the pic in the link)
I will try the fresco filter though.
Go to the Adobe website and do a search for 'Decay brushes' there are lots of them that will allow you to achieve this effect very easily.
Simon, I downloaded them from the Adobe website but they don't seem to have gone into my brush palette
You need to load them into PS.
Select the Brush tool, then at top of the screen where the brush size is displayed click the little 'down arrow'. In the box that now appears select the arrow that points to the 'right in the circle' and select the brush set from the list.
A lot of arrows there but I hope I made sense.
The ones I downloaded aren't there in the list with all the other brushes, I clicked on the circle with the arrow facing right and there's nothing in the list which says 'select brush set'.
You should be able to select 'Load Brushes' do this and then use the standard windows dialog box to select the file you saved. It should be an ABR file.
Thanks simon this is a great tool!
Glad you sussed it and happy to be of help. Looking forward to seeing the masterpiece
I really like the effect it has on photo's so I think a bit of experimenting is in order
Sorry for the free plug but my 'Zee Germans' set of photos used these brushes. Page 3 of My PF. Not exactly the same but gives you an idea.
I love 'fortified' the technique really does complement that photo that's exactly what I'm looking at achieving.
Thanks for all your help, your portfolio is fantastic.
