Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful first weekend of Autumn and getting some wonderful photos!
A few of my affiliate companies have some new sales I wanted to share with you.
The folks at Inky Deals just release a huge (mega huge) bundle of over 1,000 premium resources for just $49 ($2700+ value). AND, even better, they’ve given me a coupon code to share that will save you 25% off of the already great price!
Click HERE to go to The Mega Graphics Bundle, and use the code MEGA25 to save the additional 25%. The code is only good on this bundle and expires on Oct. 3rd.
A new affiliate of mine is Flypaper Textures. They have some awesome packages of textures available – the newest being the “Fine Cracks” pack. I can’t wait to see what I can do with this one! These are light colored textures with very fine cracks of different types. Great for giving your image some subtle texture and toning.
They also have textures available in Photoshop (Creative Cloud only) through the Adobe Paper Texture Pro add-on. Grab it at: https://creative.adobe.com/addons#. This is the first image I did with this add-on and SIX Flypaper Textures:
Speaking of textures…
As you know, I’ve been writing an eBook on “Working with Textures & Overlays: Turn Ho-Hum into a Work of Art”, which is based on my textures seminar by the same name. It will include several projects with images and textures for you to follow along. It will also include textures and brushes created by me for you, and some added textures compliments of 2 Lil’ Owls (of which I own over 1,000!).
I’m happy to say the book is done and in final proofing and tweaking! I finished the CD imprint and wallet that it will come in. In the next week or so I will be announcing a pre-sale discount – stay tuned!!
And last but not least, Adobe has released Elements 14 (plus Premiere Elements 14 for video editing). The new version has some cool features including Dehaze and Blur Reduction.
