    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Scott! I think I finally understand how to use the Textures properly! And so much easier than what I was trying to do! Opacity & Blending – who knew?!

      You’re very welcome, Kathy. Glad I could demystify textures for you. I hope you’ll take advantage of the deal on the Pro Landscapes kit when it arrives. There’s some other juicy tips in the rest of the textures course, too. (Of course, I might be just a *little* biased. :-)

    Thank you so much Scott, your tutorial really open up my understanding on using textures effects. I think the steps are very clear for me. Now I’ll apply the technique on some of my photos. Great tutorials.

    Your timing was most excellent; I need to use some textures on some of my — let’s say — less exciting flower shots. I am in hopes a background texture might make then at least a “little” more interesting!

    I was wrong the background music was from an app that was suppose to be closed. I replayed the video and could now hear everything fine. Scott, please accept my apology for assuming that you had background music, you didn’t.

    You are the best, Scott! You have such a great way of presenting information in an easy and understandable manner. Thank you for the presets and the video. I always get your kits when they come out so I am looking forward to this one as well. Keep up the good work.

    I have asked before somewhere and made a suggestion about being able to erase the effect but leave the color as changed by the texture.
