Painterly Style Digital Backdrops for Photographers and Digital Artists

The MEGA collection! This Old Masters Painterly Style Digital Backdrop set contains a collection of 100 digital images sized at 6000 x 4800 pixels with a resolution of 300 DPI for you to use in your personal or commercial projects. This background set is curated by Alana Lee Photography and contains digital images sourced from historical paintings from the collections of museums, libraries, and art archives from around the world, including Rijksmuseum, Getty Open Content Program, and others which are designated CC0 and thus do not require attribution. Sure, you can source and access these images yourself but here you can be more efficient and direct your valuable time to create rather than researching and building your own collection of images that will work for your photography and creative projects! Digital backgrounds are a great way for photographers and digital artists to add interest to their images. Digital backdrops are a cost-effective alternative to canvas or paper backgrounds in the photography studio.

Use these digital backgrounds as layered files and choose different blending modes (I usually use overlay, soft light, normal, or multiply depending on the individual image and effect I wish to achieve) in your Photoshop or other editing software to add interest to your images. The final look will vary, depending on the colors and details of the image you are using and the layer blending mode is chosen. You can also use layer masks when adding these digital backgrounds to selectively apply them to desired areas, crop in and use only portions of the digital backgrounds in your composition, or try varying the opacity for unlimited creative possibilities.
