These Photoshop free overlays are available for download in JPEG and PNG - the two main formats for professional images. In some cases, it is better to use JPEG, and in some cases - PNG. JPEG is an image format that uses lossy compression and does not support transparency. JPEG is optimal for the images with a large number of colors. PNG is an image format that works with full-color images, uses lossless compression and allows you to maintain transparency. PNG is optimal for images with a small number of colors.
Compatibility with Adobe Creative Cloud and Photoshop 4-6 will allow you to use your habitual programs. Thanks to the instant downloading, you can quickly proceed directly to editing. In order not to limit our users, these free Photoshop overlays are available to both PC and Mac users and support RAW and JPEG photos. Enter your email and get any overlay within 2 minutes.
What Are PS Overlays?
Thanks to the adding of light tones and patterns, overlays give the opportunity to create the desired effect without much effort. Just a few actions and everything is ready. Using a transparent overlay, you can make the composition more harmonious, without suppressing other elements. Since Photoshop allows you to choose the level of opacity, you have complete freedom of action. To make your free Photoshop overlay more visible, set a high level of opacity. Conversely, if you need a less noticeable overlay, then select a lower opacity level. Experiment with opacity levels to find the perfect version for you.
Photoshop overlays have a huge number of variations, for example:
- Adding the effect of rain drops or a flash of the lens.
- Change the background to a more acceptable one. For example, replacing the gloomy sky with a beautiful sunset.
- Adding colorful falling particles, whether it's leaves or snowflakes.
- Creation of large-scale compositions with the participation of people, animals or large objects. This is especially useful if in real conditions this is not possible.
Thanks to our professionals, you can get a huge number of different overlays for every taste. The collection of FixThePhoto free Photoshop overlays will become for you a faithful companion for a long time at retouching photos.
