Textures can be applied in a variety of ways to achieve different effects.
Most techniques involve adding a texture to a new layer above your photograph,
and then adjustments are made to the layer blending mode and opacity. Layer masks
are often used to remove or reduce the texture effect from certain areas of the
photo (like a person's face for example).
Below are some excellent tutorials that explain the process in detail. We hope you find them helpful. Remember, you can always download small versions of our textures if you'd like to try to these techniques yourself.
