Old Master Painting Background Plates for Photographers and Digital Artists

This sampler set of Old Masters Digital Backgrounds contains a collection of 8 digital images sized at 6300 x 4200 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 Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. Digital backgrounds are a great way for photographers and digital artists to add interest to their images. Digital backgrounds 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 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.
