Here are some sources, software, and resources that I use regularly. 

Denise Ippolito is a great resource, teacher, and source of inspiration for creative photography. Her ebook "Bloomin Ideas" is a must have resource.

FYI, Entering “Photoshop texture” into Google will yield MANY links to both free and purchasable textures.

"Textures are like Actions, meaning they won't give the same results on every image you apply them to. Textures are moody fickle things, you have to fiddle with the Layer Modes and Opacity Levels to find the results you are happy with, but it's fun to think outside the box and try using some different tools within Photoshop or whatever editor 

We just love, love, love their products. Use Clarity or Adjust on the majority of my images.
