Grunge & Grit
In this day and age of 36 megapixel cameras, sometimes your photo just looks too clean. Luckily, we have Photoshop to remedy this. These actions will help you spice up your photos with some grit and grunge.
While not appropriate for every photo, there are many times where you want to get that “dirty” look.
For example, if you want to enhance your old photograph effects, then grunge will definitely make your image look more aged. Or if you’re going for something incredibly stylized (like a “horror” look), then this set of actions will easily help you achieve that.
This set of actions includes several amazing grunge and grit textures that you can easily overlay on your photos with the “texture overlay” action.
Hover over the image on the right to see how you can make a normal image look like it came straight out of a scary movie poster.
