We have created a collection of 230 handmade textures designed to take your photography to the next level. We started with basic craft papers and physically crumpled them, scratched them, tore them, and even lit them on fire them to create unique and interesting textures.

ORGANIZATION AND FORMAT OF THE PHOTOSHOP TEXTURES
We’ve created a systematic and organized approach to using Photoshop Textures. We’ve categorized them into 5 textures: Foundation, Grunge, Burned, Effects, and Blends.
1. FOUNDATION PHOTOSHOP TEXTURES
These 50 Foundation Paper Textures are the original craft papers as well as their crumpled counterparts. Below are a few examples.
2. GRUNGE PHOTOSHOP TEXTURES
We have 80 Grunge Paper Textures, created by taking the foundation papers above and staining them and scratching them to give them more character.
3. BURNED PHOTOSHOP TEXTURES
We also include 30 Burn Paper Textures, created by taking the foundation papers and the grunge papers above and partially burning them. A few of the awesome results are shown below.
4. EFFECTS PHOTOSHOP TEXTURES
We also have 50 Effects Paper Textures, which are additional layers of effects that you can add to existing Paper textures or use as stand alone Paper textures.
5. BLENDED PHOTOSHOP TEXTURES
Within the 2.5 Hours of video tutorials, we teach you how to blend multiple layers of Paper textures to create unique textures that fit a particular image and style. To get you started, we include 23 of these that we’ve created for you. We encourage you to create your own so that you’ll have paper textures unique to your style of photography!
OVER 2.5 HOURS OF TUTORIALS
