Cool How to add textures in GIMP. :)

Adding textures in GIMP makes your images look cool. Sometimes even like they have been done on photoshop. Here is an example.

Click the image to open in full size.

Here is how to do it!

1. Make sure you have flattened your image if you have added any text. To do this, go to Image > Flatten Image.
Click the image to open in full size.

2. Paste your texture on. I tend to get mine from this site- http://swimchick.net/free-resources/textures. Then, when you have pasted it, click new layer. Then on the layers screen, it will say mode: normal. Change this to the one which makes the texture fit on correctly. Usually, it is either Colour, Overlay, Soft Light, or Screen.

Click the image to open in full size.

3. Flatten your image. That's it! Easy Peasy! xD

On the site, scroll down and there are loads of textures. The texture I used on this image however was more of a frame. They can make the coloring look better.

On the site-

Scroll down and there are loads of textures. Just click on one you like, it should go bigger, then click copy.

Its just really confusing, your guide.. your texture is different then all the ones on the site. They are more like backgrounds then things you can put on a pic.... it just doesn't work
