Step 6: Complete Editing Of Background Image

Okay, we need to finish editing the background image.

■ Make sure that the textured background layer is highlighted to indicate it is the active layer. Also, make sure that the ornament layer is not visible (that is, the eye icon is not visible in the left column).

■ Choose Image ^ Adjustments ^ Hue/ Saturation (Ctrl+U) to get the Hue/Saturation dialog box shown in Figure 4.10. First click the box next to Colorize to turn it on. Then set Hue, Saturation, and Lightness to 40, 20, and 50 respectively. Click OK to apply the settings.

■ Now add grain by choosing Filter ^ Noise >-Add Noise to get the dialog box shown in Figure 4.11. Set Amount to 10%, Distribution to Gaussian, and turn on Monochromatic. Click OK to apply the filter.
