SUPER TUTORIAL... just a suggestion; either duplicate the original image (in the layers palet) and work above it till the end or rename the file right at the beginning so that you don't loose the original.

I will try it and the amazing thing is 2 layers??? or are my eyes deceiving once more ?

Very nice tutorial. Wouldn't it be better to use CTRL ALT SHIFT E to make a new merged layer that is non destructive? Thanks again for the nice tutorial.

A grand display of grunge, Sharilyn! I didn't even know you had posted this tutorial until I read bmac62's latest dove upload. So, let me experiment with this new found asset for a while and see what I can come up with. I hope this as easy as you claim!

I asked 2-3 days ago. Thanks for this. I am laughing...I've got more things to try than there are hours in the day for... Maybe I can take one of my 2000 airplane photos and grunge it???
