Default How to add a finishing touch to a graphic.

Welcome!
Hey there. I am Priceless, yet with another guide.
This one is about how to add a finishing touch on
a graphic, and its been requested. Have you ever had
a strange feeling like your graphic just wasn't complete?
Well *hopefully ;]* this guide will be helpful.

Huh?
Still really not getting this? Well these are a few easy
steps to figuring out what is missing. For instance,
maybe your like, "oh yeah! I needed text. Duhh.."

OK, so now if this guide really doesn't help you,
I'd suggest you don't tell it to my face, since --
I find it rude. Thank you, of course. for reading
this and I hope you like it!

Tips!
Bringing on the tips is easy to say.
Now are these tips really going to be helpful?
We about to find out, literally, now! xD

1] Text is always nice. Text is usually what I am missing, but I am always like, "Wait! I want text, but no fonts seem right, and I really want something like a text block!"

*Text block is usually small or very hard text that you are un-able to read due to being in another language or very very fancy text. It can also be bunched together, sort of over-textured.

Links on where to get text blocks (I use brusheezy to find my brushes btw ;])
Old Postage Stamp Brushes - Free Photoshop Brushes at Brusheezy!
old brushes 2 - Free Photoshop Brushes at Brusheezy!

2] Always brightness, hue or adjustments work. I suggest brightness when you add a texture to a picture and that texture is dark, so it makes the complete image. Take the base picture, or the one you started w/ and brighten it up. :]

3] Did I mention textures? Well maybe in the last tip, but adding a lot of textures never really hurts o.e Seriously, it doesn't! Oh wait, did the o.e throw it all off? I am sorry, wait no don't go! You still need to learn about textures xD

*Textures are a cover that you put over the beginning image. So lets say I have a city, and I want to add a bokeh (meaning dots that are close up lights you have pictures up) texture. Well I would add it on, and make sure the opacity is low so the city image can be seen, but so can the picture. If you still don't understand, feel free to ask me or another graphics maker.

Here are some cool websites to get textures (I have lots more too xD)
Textures – Free Textures at Brusheezy!
Snookumz • Resources for design, school, or fun
I N N O C E N S E .org (resources, graphics, tutorials and more)
(Thanks to emmlag96 for the snookumz link!)

4] Add a new look you never have seen someone do before. For instance, I added a mirror into a Taylor Swift blend I made, and a lot of people said it was creative. I really like vintage stuff, but you can add whatever you'd like! So for instance, add a box of crayons to the image xD It may sound absurd, but in the end it makes the picture look awesome!

5] Just go w/ what your heart tells you do. Sometimes you really need to just follow your own path. Sometimes things may seem like people won't like it, just like my mirror I added xD But trust me, in the end sometimes making a wacked-out thing will inspire anyone x]


That's all for now!
Well that's all for now. Feel free to rate, comment, whatever you'd like.
If you don't understand something, I will try to explain it as best I can.
More guides are coming your way because, I am a guide kind of guy x]
Well bye bye, and have a great day/adternoon/evening/night/etc xD
