(2) Photoshop 7 problems...

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me with two problems...

1) A lot of tutorials these days have a better program of Photoshop than mine and include Photo Filters (warming, cooling, etc).  I don't think I have it on my old school program.  I can't find it anywhere if I do...  I was wondering if there was any way to get the same effect on PS CS2?  Because you can def tell a difference without the effect.

2) Sometimes when I'm using a texture set to Multiply, and lower the % from 100, the texture morphs into these black and white horizontal lines I can't get rid of.  I've tried softening, replacing the texture, blurring, moving, rotating, nothing works.  It's an intermittent problem, doesn't happen always.  I've tried to recreate the problem to show as an example but, of course, that's asking too much at the moment.  :D  Does anyone know what I'm talking about?  And is there a way to solve this?  (I will try to upload an example if it happens again soon.)

Thanks for your help!

EDIT ~ Please note that I changed my program from Photoshop CS2 to Photoshop 7.  I just realized I was recording the wrong program details.  I do not have Photoshop CS2.  :(  I'm even more of a dinosaur than I thought!
