Go to Unsplash and download the picture of the cracked cement photo. I was playing around with some effects and came across another picture I thought looked cool with this design. So, I decided to add it.
After you download the image. Go to File > Place and select the cracked cement photo.
Now, stretch the photo across the other picture so that it covers it.
With the cement picture selected, go to the Blend Mode and select Vivid Light. Set the Opacity to 15%.
