As there are a those who don’t have Photoshop or may not be aware of the lovely noise filter, there is another alternative! Noise Texture Generator, is a simple free online tool that creates a noise effect with just a few clicks 🙂
Check it out, and do let us know what you think or if you know of any other texture generators that you use.
