Each texture features a carefully composed color scheme and a hot spot, as well as darker areas. Simply scale, mirror or flip the texture layer to you needs to highlight or color the areas of your image that benefit best from the effect. As a general rule, the hot spot areas work best with faces and persons where as the darker areas work their magic on backgrounds.
In "Screen" blend mode each radiance texture adds quite a lot of brightness to your image, creating beautiful pastel effects. These work well for fashion looks, sunlight or vintage filters and can be fine tuned by adjusting the layer opacity. A setting of about 20% is generally a good start.
