SOFTWARE INFO I MENTIONED:

My DxO Nik Collection 5 affiliate link is HERE. DxO does not give us discount codes to give out…BUT…I did some snooping online, and found a code that will save you $20!! PPA20DXO

As far as upgrades, if you only have the original Nik products, or the free Google version, you’ll need to purchase the new collection. If you’ve purchased since DxO took over the products, then once you click my link above and go to the site, log in to see your upgrade price.

I also mentioned that in addition to the Nik HDR Efex, I happen to love Photomatix. My affiliate link is HERE, and you can use the code MeredithImages at checkout to save 15%.

Thanks again to all who attended, and I appreciate all your kind words as we wrapped it up!!

NEXT WEBINAR – SAVE THE DATE!

Tuesday, August 23 at 4:00 pm EDT

Topic TBD! (Suggestions welcome!)


In September I will be doing “Alternative Creative Software”
(things that can replace the creative options in Topaz Studio)

CREATING YOUR OWN TEXTURES COURSE

THE COURSE IS COMPLETE!!!
I posted the last Module Sunday morning!

The Course contains just shy of ELEVEN HOURS OF VIDEOS and over 160 PAGES OF NOTES & RESOURCES! In addition to the videos and notes, you receive well over 100 texture images, plus brushes and gradients!

Regular price $129
Save $20 with coupon code COURSE20
Sale extended through 8/7!

After that, the price will increase to $179!
So, don’t wait!

If you haven’t joined the party, jump on in!! This will be the last time the course is offered for $109! The course is self-paced, and you may download the videos as well as all of the PDF instructions to use at any time.

You will learn how to create your own textures and then modify them for even more textures! Use Photoshop filters, brushes, Procreate on iPad, and your smartphone to create/photograph textures, and then modify or change those textures with plug-in software, brushes, phone apps, and by blending multiple textures, using gradient maps, changing color palettes, and much more. And you’ll learn LOTS of techniques to create textures by hand at home with free or inexpensive supplies – mostly things you’ll find around the house!

Modules 1-9 contain all of the projects for various ways to create and modify textures. Module 10 has resources and the replays of our two group chats. I’ll be scheduling another chat in September. We also have a private Facebook group just for course participants to share creations and ideas and ask questions.

And...in the future when I add new material or update any materials in the course, you will be able to access the new material all for the same low price (I already have some new ideas and techniques I want to add to the early modules)!

Don’t wait…the base price will be increasing on Aug. 8th!

Come join us!
