p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · ESPN Front Page Image - Any Filters for this


The front page for ESPN had a grunge, worn crackle effect to it. I took a screenshot since I didn't know how long it would still be there.

Are there any PS filters that have this effect?

TIA

Mod edit, please link images that are not your own.

Mark, looks like they just overlaid 2 or 3 concrete and/or metal textures (often in Overlay or Soft light blend mode) and faded some images in, blending it all together with custom brushes.

Here's just one resource for free textures: http://lostandtaken.com/gallery/tag/concrete

And for brushes, textures, and patterns: http://www.brusheezy.com/brushes

All of this stuff can be easily made yourself, too...

If you have an iPad or a Mac you can get something similar with an app called Snapseed. The effect is actually call grunge.

Tom, thanks - I will look into these textures.

Kevin, I will look into something similar to Snapseed. I am a PC user though.

You can reduce the saturation and increase clarity or definition and it will give a similar feel...add some film grain/noise and there you go. The look was really popular when the movie 300 came out.
