Scratch Overlay

This is a free set of Scratches Overlays for Photoshop, which will be perfect if you want to create stylish images fast and easy. If you want to make your image look old-fashioned, a little careless, or imperfect, then these free scratches overlays are exactly what you need. 

Use them in Photoshop to add such an effect to your photos in several clicks. Mind that it won’t go well with all genres of photos. We don’t recommend using it with wedding photography, studio portraits, landscape or product shots (unless you have some creative ideas in mind). Scratches overlays will be great for sports photography, event photography, urban portraits, street photography, etc. In any case, this collection will be useful for beginning or expert photo retouchers alike.
