3b.For a more swirly look make a new image 800x600 and follow the above steps.
4.Add a new layer

depth of a texture can be altered depending on the contrast and sharpness of the midtones.

the less sharp the mid tones the shallower the texture. sharp contrast in the midtones give the image a deeper feel.

compair your #2 image with the one after ...
"Tools>Color Tools>Colorize"
