            It's fairly easy to do in Fireworks without any special filters.

            Import an image of a brick wall, or boards, or textured metal, and place
            it on top of the image you want to add the effect to. With the texture
            image still selected, choose the Convert to Alpha Filter ( [+]> Other >
            Convert to Alpha).

            Once the image is converted to Alpha, select Adjust Color > Color Fill
            and then choose a color that matches the background color of your image.
            If the effect is too strong, apply the Average blend mode. If you want
            the image to look fogged, use a white color fill. If you want it to look
            rusted, choose a dark orange color fill.

            Experiment with different colors and blend modes for different effects.
