    I happen to like a "weathered" look so I thought it might be fun to make some wallpapers that look as though they had seen better days.

    Nice! Mind sharing the under layer you're using?

    most welcome.

    if you use them to make some backgrounds, please share.

    They're not coming out like how you've done them. I've tried overlay, multiply and darken. They work great for cartoonish type photos. But, for posters and regular photos its not having the "wood" effect on the "weathered" parts.

    post one of the images you are trying to use and I'll have a go at it.

    I threw together a few quick test images to see what would happen. Are you getting results similar to these?

    just a little experimentation; but I don't think I like the brick as much as the wood.

    Haven't used masks much on Photoshop yet, could I have a quick set of instructions on how to produce the effect? Thanks

    Edit: Nvm, figured it out

    So the parts where the paint is chipping off and exposes the wood underneath are great but, mine are looking like this:

    No wood. Just black. Wat do?

    update...

    Forget all the masking stuff. I separated the exposed wood onto its own layer.

    Download the attached zip file then open one of the photoshop psd files and place your image on a layer between the bottom and topmost layers. Change the mode to "multiply" for the layer containing your image file and you're done.

    I needed to invert the layer mask before it worked.
    Anyway, the zip above is probably easier!

    Here's mine that I made on Sunday, also created an iPhone 5 version (with badge on top of 'distressed' effect). Thanks for the pictures to do it with!

    Could someone do this weathered look with the New York Rangers logo? And one for iPhone 5 too?

    Where did you get the brick/wood images? Do you have any higher res ones for mac backgrounds?

    LOTS of browsing on google images. I couldn't point you to a particular website. I just grabbed stuff as I found it.

    No, I don't have any higher res images. Some of the textures were originally larger, but after I resized them for the retina iPad, I deleted the originals.

    Try searching for stuff like, painted wood, weathered wood, old brick, painted brick, etc. Use google image search and select image sizes larger than 2MB under the advanced tools settings.

    good luck.
