Everything in the Graffishop is 40% off – no frills or specials or whatevers. And why wait until Friday? Don’t we all have enough to do already? It’s happening now through Friday.
Just 40% off everything. Cheers!
The free download gives you five overlay textures at 1334×2000 pixels. If you’re a SparkleStock member, you can download the premium pack which includes 24 overlay textures at 5334×8000 pixels (that’s 40 megapixels!).
Using the overlay textures is simple. Simply drag and drop the image file into your document then set the blending mode to Linear Light.
These overlay textures quickly add a creased paper look to your image but they don’t actually distort it. When up close, you can tell that it’s not real – that’s the downside of using overlay textures. If you want to distort it, you can use the Liquify tool (Filter > Liquify) on your image. But for me, it’s good enough to give the effect.
In case you’re wondering how the 3D text was created, they were created with the 3D Text Creator which is included in your SparkleStock membership or can be purchased on Graphic River or Creative Market.
Graffi’s Photo Effects Sampler for Elements 11 & 12 is out, with a sampling of new photo effects from the 5 most popular sets available in the Graffishop
The 5 actions included are
Samples of each are below – grab a copy and see if you like them!
Handy Actions 12 has been rebuilt and will include some new Handy Actions not available in Elements versions prior to Elements 11. This new version will install to Elements 11 & 12 and will include new adjustment layer actions previously available in my Hipster Kits and as a stand-alone set (and there will also be a legacy version available for Elements 6 – 10!) You can check out the Handy Action page here
Add-O-Matic 12 has also undergone a facelift, and it now sports a new look keeping in line with the look of Elements 11 & 12 (which it will support, coincidentally, along with Lightroom). The new AOM will be compatible with Elements 11 & 12 and Lightroom only – but no tears, legacy version versions of the best add-on adder utility for Elements will also be available!
The bundle pack that includes both of them will be available this weekend. The usual upgrade pricing applies (it’s the same as Adobe’s: if you purchased within 30 days of the new release, you get a free upgrade; previous purchasers will get a discount code for the upgrade).
This set contains 8 high-res (10 megapixels) frosted backgrounds. If you’re a SparkleStock member, you get 80 backgrounds and they’re 20 megapixels!
The set contains both daytime and nighttime photos. Because the photos are defocused in camera (instead of in Photoshop), you get the beautiful bokeh and realistic blur that makes your product more professional-looking.
These backgrounds are perfect for iOS/Android apps. And at 10 megapixels, you have more resolution than you need even for the iPad with Retina display!
This set includes 23 presets that create vintage, retro, hipster toy camera looks.
And, oh by the way – they’re intro priced 50% off through July 5!
If that’s still too much for you, you might want to enter your name in the giveaway – this time, these are up for grabs to one lucky randomly-chosen entrant. Just complete the entry (there’s a question you have to answer, but it’s an easy one!) and see if your name comes up.
There’s a gallery off all the effects on the product page – check them out and see what you think! And, as always – your feedback is appreciated
Finally!These are in the shop and on sale 50% off through this Sunday (Father’s Day, so grab them up for Dad the shutterbug!)
These presets have been created especially for recreating a vintage retro Instagram-ish look. Please check out the samples gallery to see some examples of them in action.
To get them into Lightroom, simply choose the [Load] button in your Lightroom Develop Module.

Pretty sure I’ve posted before, but I went looking for a font and it was here!
To retouch skin, simply play an action then paint over the areas that you want to retouch. They’re extremely easy to use and a rough paint will work – you don’t need to be too precise.
The skin airbrushing action makes skin look smoother without losing skin details.
Here’s a video preview of what you can achieve with these Photoshop actions. Note: The video uses the SparkleStock version of this action that contains 20 retouching actions rather than 5.
