STEP 1:
DOWNLOAD

To make our products easy to download, we've packaged them in compressed ZIP files. In order to extract your .zip file, you can either use the built in extractor from your computer, or utilize a variety of extraction software products available.

How to decompress (unzip) a file on your computer:

MAC USERS : Simply double-click on the ZIP file. Voilà!

PC USERS: Right-click the ZIP file and select "Extract All".

If you find that your computer does not come with a built-in file extractor, we suggest the following programs: WinZip or StuffIt

How to apply Textures & Overlays in Photoshop / Creative Cloud

Step 4: Position the overlay, then click the check mark to place the overlay.

Step 5: Change blend mode to suit your needs. We suggest MULTIPLY, OVERLAY or SCREEN.

NOTE: If you are using a PNG overlay, as opposed to a JPEG overlay (such as our Leaf & Branch Overlays), you do not need to use a blend mode since the PNG files are working with transparent pixels. Simply place the image and that's all there is to it :).
