In this video tutorial, I will show you how to add a background texture to your image! First of all, we will start of with importing our main image into Photoshop. Secondly we will adjust our texture image in Camera Raw and import it into Photoshop. Once we are done with that, we will create a duplicate layer and start masking out our person. In this process we will work with the refine edge tool and masks. Our last step will be to fine tune our texture layer and adjusting our blending mode option.

Quick reminder: Don’t forget to clean up your mask layer, once you are done with the refine edge tool.
