    I saw this photo tonight by a fellow NC photographer and lovvved it, and realized I have no idea how to add texture like this to a photo.

    I have Elements 7 for the time being-- upgrading to CS3 soon. Can anyone help me out in how to add texture similar to that in the photo?

    Sorry for the link but it's not my photo so I don't feel right uploading it!

    Thanks!

    You can find textures online. Download the kind you want (concrete illustrated here) and drag it onto your image like this:

    2. Change blend mode to Overlay (for a more subtle effect, use Soft Light mode):

    3. Adjust layer opacity to suit:

    4. If you want to apply the texture selectively, add a layer mask and paint with black:
