“Working with Layer Styles & Type”
Join me Tuesday, August 31st
at 4:00 pm (Eastern Time)
I had some great suggestions from my last survey on what you would like to see more of from me as well as topics for upcoming webinars and tutorials.
This was requested by more than a few people, so here you go! I’ll show you how to add Type to your images and then make it “pop” with Layer Styles. I’ll also demonstrate other uses for Layer Styles.
