I want to add some destressed textures to my designs but because I have Photoshop Elements 9, There aren't specific tutorials for me. Anyone know how to do this?
Also if you have a moment...

What I usually do is take some (free to use) textures of rust/scratches/grunge, convert them to gray-scale (CTRL+SHIFT+U), then go to Select -> Color Range and select black (or white, it depends) and adjust the (fuzziness) sliders to something that seems right. Then I use that selection to paint a mask on my layer, usually with a rough brush. I don't know if this helps for Elements?
