Looking for a brilliant photo blender app? Once you know how the Blend Tool works in Over, your eyes will open up to the possibility of adding realistic textures to your photos and designs. And once that happens, you’ll realise very quickly that textures are all around us.
In our 2020 Trends Report earlier this year, we pointed to 'Analogue Texture' as a hugely popular aesthetic. Emulating the look of old film photographs, glued posters, crumpled paper, rust and dust, this picture editing approach works really well to create an old school, retro feeling – harking back to pre-digital times. But blending texture into digital images also just adds some grit, realness, and visual intrigue to your design.
Over has hundreds of textures in our graphics library, ranging from specific applications like film grain and light leaks, to abstract patterns, gradients, and digital glitches. Using the Blend Tool as a picture editor, you can effectively combine these graphics with any image by selecting the right mode, and then modulating the strength of the effect: it can either be subtle, or very pronounced.
