Creating a completely unique and customizable look to your images can be as easy and fun as painting with textured brushes you make yourself. Harnessing the power of Pixelmator makes the process simple and allows you to create layers of nuance and depth for your images. I get so inspired by the possibilities available to photographers today, it sometimes reminds me of the crazy things we did to manipulate film back in the 'darkroom days": Yes, I've stepped on a negative and rubbed it in the floor to put scratches and "texture" on it... all in the name of creativity (hey, I was young and you had to be pretty inventive then!)

Now we have so much better, infinitely cleaner, and more adjustable means to exercise our creative imaginations:

And sometimes, textures look so good in B+W images. Creativity is boundless, if you let it be. Be bold, be imaginative, be creating, it's the best way to live!
