Go to File>Open and find the Halftone back­ground.jpg im­age in your Free Gifts folder then dou­ble-click it to open it up. Hit Ctrl+A to se­lect it, Ctrl+C to copy it and Ctrl+W to close it down. Now back in the im­age you’re work­ing on, hit Ctrl+V to paste it in. In the Lay­ers panel, drag this new layer down so that it sits be­low the other vis­i­ble lay­ers as a back­ground. It’s likely to need re­siz­ing, so hit Ctrl+T to put it into Free Trans­form Mode, hold the Shift key and drag the corner han­dles of the bound­ing box un­til it’s the size you want it. You can also drag the back­ground into place to re­po­si­tion it. The back­ground has an or­ange and yellow gra­di­ent, and you can change this by press­ing Ctrl+U to bring up the Hue/Sat­u­ra­tion panel and then drag­ging the Hue slider to shift the colours un­til you find an ef­fect you like.
