Did you know that Photoshop CS6 has a Custom Shape set that includes coffee stains?

Tutorial artwork by Frank Nicholls in Issue 98

The Grime Vector shapes offer a great way to muck up your images.

Press U for the Custom Shape tool and in the Options bar set the shape thumbnails to show just the Grime Vector Pack.

Set the layer’s blend mode to Multiply to merge the stain into the image, and use a dark brown for the Fill colour and a light brown (picked from the main image) for the Stroke’s colour.

Learn how to create this grunge design in the tutorial in Issue 98, on sale now at Imagine Shop, and in all good stores.
