Beyond Beyond Day 28- Texture Tweaking

I’m catching up in my Beyond Beyond class too (although I am skipping around).  The challenge was to take a favorite texture and edit it 3 ways to make 4 different versions.  I used Lightroom 5, rather than Adobe Camera Raw, because it is my comfort zone and the method is almost the same.

Here is Kim Klassen’s 1301 texture (a favorite because of the creases), which I edited to change tones and to emphasize the creases in each one. The upper left square is the original.

Another idea suggested was to choose 4 different textures and simultaneously edit them the same way.  Again I used Lightroom 5- with the AutoSync feature.  Easy Peasy! I chose the cora, sybil, anna, and daisy from the Downton collection and made each grittier by increasing clarity and contrast, adding grain, deepening shadows etc. Fun!
