Rusty Boost Macro

Recommended Posts

Photos of rusty motifs sometimes have a certain flair, which you can reinforce/enhance if desired. This Rusty Boost Macro just tries to do this in a reusable manner with some simple applied layers.

LAYERS

This macro creates two layers for you with corresponding layer masks:

  1. The macro makes first a copy (Ctrl/Cmd-J) of your background image layer and then applies a high pass filter on it (with a default setting of 20 px)
    and puts this layer into vivid light blending mode. You might adjust the layer's opacity to your taste here. There is also a layer mask applied so you
    can include/exclude certain image areas with a white/black brush here on demand.
  2. A 15% opacity black fill layer and mask are applied in multiply blend mode, in order to give blacks a slightly stronger go and darkens the image slightly.
    You can adjust the black fill layer opacity to your liking and use for the layer mask a white/black low to medium opacity soft brush and paint over the image,
    in order to include/exclude certain image areas from the black fill.

Looks great, but unfortunately doesn’t import from the macro studio on iPad.

I think you need to export it from the library, and also rename it macros (with an S on the end), in order for it to be iPad compatible.

Thanks anyway, nice to see people sharing :)
