Add texture easily
Dan Mold shows you how to use the free textures supplied with this issue of PhotoPlus to add texture to your shots in Photoshop Elements

Sometimes your images need a little extra punch to make them really stand out and textures are a brilliant way of doing precisely that!

Texture files can be stored on your computer, added to your images to give them additional depth, or even add multiple textures to build up the effect. They’re great fun to play around with and also a brilliant way to learn more about Layers and Layer Masks in Photoshop.

We’re using the budget-friendly Photoshop Elements for this tutorial, but the steps are the same if you’d like to try it out in Photoshop CC too.

We’re supplying you with 15 textures that you can download (see the link on the left). These are full colour files, but if you don’t want the colours of your original image to be affected, you can turn the texture image to mono by pressing Ctrl+Cmd+U. Read on to see how you can leave an impression with textures.
