Textures
There are many sites which offer free (and for purchasing) textures. You download the texture images and save them somewhere on your computer. To use them:
1. Open both your image and the texture image.
2. Go to Window>Images>Tile. This command will display both images side by side in the workspace.
3. Use the Move Tool to drag the texture over your image.
4. If the texture image is larger or smaller than your image, use Free Transform (Ctrl-T, Mac = Command-T) to resize it accordingly.
5. Go to the Layers panel and change the texture layer blending mode from Normal to Multiply, Overlay, or Soft Light. Experiment with other layer blending modes and also with the Opacity.
6. If you don't want your whole image to be textured, use a layer mask to hide some of the texture effect.
Here are some sites to get textures from:
