In this video tutorial I demonstrate how to add texture to a photo in Photoshop. I also show how to do this using Smart Objects so you can edit and replace the texture and image layers, making the process as non-destructive as possible.

    Nicole great tip and cool simple technique. Thanks. When ever you get the time it would be cool to have you explain why if Smart Objects are so great , why isn’t that just the default? Sometimes I forget to bring in a pic as a SO and then I have to start over. Sorry for rambling. Hope the fun continues in Australia for you and Brian.
