Photo Textures

Sometimes a plain background is just the ticket. Adding a photo texture, though, can often be what pushes your design from “Nice” to “Holy cow!”

You can also place a texture onto a photo for a different feel — create additional granularity and depth for an artistic look.

How to add texture to a photo

  1. Start – Open a photo in Picmonkey.

  2. Navigate – Head to the Textures tab.

  3. Enhance – Click a texture you like to place it over your photo.

  4. Customize – Adjust position, size, saturation, and fade.

  5. Apply – Boom! Your photo has a whole new feel.

Choose from 400+ photo textures

With PicMonkey’s easy-to-use tools, you can create unique vibes for social, branding, and life.
