Create a Grunge Industrial Background in Photoshop

Create a new PSD file size 650x515px just to make an idea about the proportions of the document. I strongly suggest you to use JPEG, small size images, around 650px with optimized quality around 200kb when uploading on your online portofolio, on social media pages, etc. In that way you can save a lot of energy just by optimizing your images and you can help reduce the global warmingb>.

Copy this Sci-fi Metal Wall Panel texture in a new layer. This industrial metal background is made using perforated metal sheet texture, screws and metallic bars.

Add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer to darken the background.

Add a Color Balance adjustment layer to increase the red color tones of the background.

In a new layer add this Old Stone Block Pavement texture.

Add a Gradient Overlay to the Stone Pavement layer. The colors for the gradient are #000000(Location 0%) and #000000(Location 100%). Add two Opacity Stop. The first opacity stop is set to Opacity 100%, Location 24% and the second opacity stop is set to Opacity 0%, Location 60% .

Add a Selective Color image adjustment just for the Stone Pavement layer using a Clipping Mask. From the Colors drop-down list choose Neutrals.

Above all the other layers add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer to darken the industrial background.
