Below is a gallery of high resolution background textures that you can download for free and use as you wish. Background textures add an extra layer of interest to most photographs. Just drop them over an image in Photoshop and then play with different layer effects (i.e. multiply, hard light, overlay, etc.) and opacity until you get your desired result.
