Using Textures

You can use Photoshop Elements’ many textures to add special effects and virtual “frames” to your photos. For example, you might add the Sunset texture to a portion of your favorite beach photo, or add the Wood Frame texture to a photo before printing it. The Effects palette offers 15 textures that can be applied to either a selected area or your entire image. Keep in mind, however, that textures that include (layer) after their name can be applied only to an entire layer, not a selection. These include the Ink Blots, Marbled Glass, Sunset, and Wood > Pine textures.

The Filters palette includes a smaller, more subdued assortment of textures. These tend to be a little less dramatic than the ones you’ll find on the Effects palette.
