Welcome to

Since 1997, the graficalicus web & graphics workshop has been online bringing you tips, tricks, tutorials, tools and other goodies for Photoshop & Photoshop Elements. The goal has been to provide an online resource for professional, semi-professional, and amateur photographers & graphic artists.

You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter, see some of my photography work on Flickr and 500px and check out some things I find cool on Pinterest and my blog - and friend or follow me at those places, too!

Graffi''s Add-O-Matic for Photoshop ElementsA simple idea a few years ago has turned into a truly remarkable utility for Photoshop Elements users. I created the Add-O-Matic as a side project to help myself get new actions into Elements quickly and easily, and in the years since its introduction, it has become the single most useful tool any Elements user can own. Thank you all!

Graffi''s Handy Actions for Photoshop ElementsGraffi''s Action Packs for Elements are based on the same internal engine, and have become equally popular for their one-click installation format into an increasingly confusing file structure within Photoshop Elements. Despite several imitators'' competition, Handy Actions is still the number 1 action pack in the Graffishop (it''s not called the "Swiss Army Knife for Elements" for nothing!). Other action packs provide options for creating B&W images, frames, glamour shots & some are just for fun.

The Graffishop, along with my Rants & Raves blog, offer numerous free and paid downloads that will enhance & add to your Photoshop & Elements installation.

Why not try out some of the freebies available, and drop me a note with any feedback, suggestions or ideas?
