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)

    This link takes me to the August 23 webinar, not the Sept one. Also, I don’t remember seeing Notes to purchase for the August 23rd webinar.

    Thank you, Sandy sandykreit@gmail.com 516-380-4900

    1. Yes, that is correct. Registration is only open for the Aug. webinar at this point. I’ll post the other link after this one takes place.

      Thanks!

  2. Hi Hazel, There are no instructions on how to install this *Free from Pixelbuddha – Pencil Sketch Text Effect, *how can I find this information so I can download it? I had another question about the GRUT Brushes. Before I knew of the GRUT Panel I had downloaded all the brushes. Does the panel have all the brushes he makes or different ones? I’ve been having a lot of issues with PS and I don’t want to download the panel if I already have the brushes. Thanks so much, Sandy sandykreit@gmail.com 516-380-4900

    1. Once you download and unzip the Pencil Sketch Text Effect folder, there are instructions inside of it. It works similar to the painterly one from a week or so ago – it’s a PSD file that you add your text to the smart layer.

      The Grut Brush Panel is just all of the brushes, so you don’t need to use it if you don’t want to.
