Anyway, all that creatting and testing kept me from posting, so I thought I give away one freebie that will be available in the Build Your Own Texture Pack.

I used this texture on one of my forest fog pictures and it added to the already dense atmosphere:
To get a rather strong texture effect I first used it in Multiply mode and then copied it and brightened up the whole picture using Soft Light at 30%. Because the Multiply layer made the tree trunks too dark I made a selection and added a layer mask at 50% to recover some light and detail on the trees.
By applying curves I enhanced the contrast and finished with levels trying to add some light to the yellow fog.
Hope to see you back here in a few days when I will be launching the new textures.
