First

Pull the photo you want to use up into Photoshop. It really can be any kind of photo at all you want to to have the canvas type look. But here, I choose one that had the paintery look to begin with.

Then

You’ll need to change the blend mode so you can see your subject. Multiply, screen, overlay or soft light tend to work best for me- but there is no right or wrong one to choose. After you select a blend mode, adjust the opacity to your liking.

Finally

If you find the effect too harsh on your subject, simply brush off any of the areas you don’t want the canvas to appear. And that’s it!

      Hey Carol! Try this:
      Try going up top to window>patterns. You’ll see a pop up on the side. In the upper right hand side of that pop up is a menu (looks like several horizontal lines) Click that and select legacy patterns and more. This should load in the canvas. You might have to close out and open back up PS after this.ReplyCancel
