It’s been a while since I got new sets posted in the Peacock Studio Store! I’ve had some in the works, just needed to finish them up! There is a new set of Pastel Bokeh Backgrounds, and four new Textured Backgrounds Sets that run the gamut from pastel to grunge! All of these will make great backgrounds for florals, portraits and much more! Combine two or more to create unique textures over your images.

All new sets are on sale for 1 week only!
Sale ends Thursday!

NEXT WEBINAR

Tuesday, August 23 at 4:00 pm EDT

Photoshop: Layers, Selections, Sizing & More!

Thanks to everyone who emailed me with ideas for the webinar! I’m going to incorporate some of them into this webinar – seems people really want to know more about Photoshop!

We’ll work with layers (including how/why to merge layers); making selections; sizing for printing; and a few creative tools.

There were more suggestions than I can fit in one webinar, so watch for more goodies in the future! And if you have other ideas, feel free to email me anytime!

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