I love using textures, love how textures add quick oomph to my photos. It also allows your creativity to soar and create a new piece of art. So today I’ll be sharing a new tutorial on how to use textures on your photos, hope it’ll be useful to someone
1. First open up your photo and texture of your choice.
2. Drag your texture and place it above your photo layer, resize and move as needed
3. Click on the layer blending modes
You see a list of blending modes, play around with each one of them. I usually use Soft Light or Overlay. You can also play with the opacity to achieve the look you desire.

Here with overlay blend mode:
If you don’t want the texture to affect the skin area, you can mask out the face.
Click on the layer mask button:

And here is the final result:
See how it looks nicer with no textures on the skin.
