Brush Up Your Photos

Anna Aspnes & Molly Newman
Enhance the artsy look of a photo montage by adding brushwork details to your photos. Here's how Anna did it:
  1. Select an image layer with Layer Mask applied. Load the artistic brush set of your choice.
  2. Set Foreground color to white and Background color to black. (Do this quickly by pressing D to set to default colors, then X to switch them.)
  3. Select a brush and adjust its size and orientation using the Brushes palette (Window > Brushes).
  4. Stamp on the photo layer's Layer Mask, ensuring the brush does not go beyond the image's edge.
