2. You can download a suitable brush in ABR file format if you want to create your own decal from scratch. If you have downloaded an image you can remove parts from the image that you want use for your texture and place them into your canvas prepared in step one.

3. Press Ctrl and hover over your layer until you see the symbol (Thumbnail) hand with square and just press once on the layer.

4. Then press X and D to change front colour to white and background to black

7. Select the area of your image than you want to be visible and with the alpha channel still selected use the paint bucket tool to fill that area white. Don't worry it won't damage your image, just set that area as solid and visible in your alpha while at the same time, masking the rest of the image.
