I used kim klassen's texture pourous a different way. the photo itself has no texture on it. the very edges are dark only becuase the layer has texture layer has been multiplied and altered. I used pourous for the background resizing so it would be a 4 x 6 then added teh photo and text. then went back and added it again and as you can see used the multiply mode and took away some so it had some dark edges.
here is the original picture:
so see another use for textures.
