Hipster [toy camera] Sample Wow! Downloaded 72 times so far!

Graffishop is closing…. and a new Graffishop is opening

And now, a regular note from me!

I’ve been working behind the scenes to get a new Graffishop ready to open – and as it stands now, I’m shooting for a Memorial Day weekend launch (in the US – it’s just plain old May 23 everywhere else in the world!)

The new shop will have a lot of the features that I’ve always wanted to incorporate in the old shop, like rollover previews, a faster checkout system, wish lists, better typography & compatibility with newer systems.  The new package has it – and a lot more.

Here’s where YOU come in:  if you haven’t logged into the old shop in a while (since before September 2013), your account is going to be purged.  I’ll maintain the data if you ever have an issue with something previously downloaded, but you’ll need to create a new account at the new shop when it opens if you want to receive newsletters, updates and members-only discounts. Stay tuned to my blog here, and check in at the Graffishop for update announces in the next week or so.

Meanwhile, for quick downloads, you can fast-n-easy download the Graffi add-on items from here

Thanks for all your support over the past decade! I’m looking forward to releasing new Lightroom presets & Photoshop Elements actions over the next several months, and I have a pretty good start on some new goodies for you!

Freebie: 5 Skin Retouching Photoshop Actions

Skin Retouching Actions Preview

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.

Freebie: 12 Large Bokeh Brushes

Bokeh Brush Preview

There are 12 color bokeh brushes. If you’re a SparkleStock member, you can pick from 18 bokeh brushes! They come in multiple sizes; 625, 1250, 2500, and 5000 pixels. In addition, you get them in pre-colored JPEG images to save you time. Drag and drop them into your document then set the blending mode to Screen or Linear Dodge – it’s that easy!

Large Bokeh

We recommend using these bokeh brushes with photos that have some sort of retro photo effect applied. Here are some photo effect tutorials we recommend:

These bokeh brushes work great with portraits. Paint with your brush and layer set to linear dodge using different colors. Combine it with some color lookup filters (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Lookup) to give it a photo retro effect. You can combine the Futurstic Bleak and Film Stock color lookups for the best results.

Hipster [vintage] Kit demo release

Here’s the Hipster[vintage] Kit I’ve been posting about for the past few weeks.  This is the first little bit of it; the Adjustment Layer actions, a blurred focal point action, a vignette action, a few Instamatic-type frames and the crop square script.

Downloading is free!  So are comments and feedback – yours, I mean.  So many folks just grab my downloads and I never get feedback until I get a message in my email. I’d love to get both good and bad comments so I can fix anything that might need fixing.

Got a comment for me, then? ;)

Photoshop Adjustment Layers for Photoshop Elements

A fun secret about Photoshop Elements 11: some Photoshop Adjustment Layers can be used in Elements!

Specifically, Black and White, Color Balance, Exposure and Selective Color adjustments can be added with the actions downloadable below.  Note that these will only be available for limited time! They will be included in the updated Handy Actions set early in 2013. Add-O-Matic will be updated to allow for sharing and loading presets that these adjustment layers create. (AOM already supports Channel Mixer- .cha – and Curves – .acv – files, as well as Lightroom presets.)

The caveat to these actions is that the adjustments can only be made while the action opens the dialog; once it’s committed, you cannot go back and edit the settings without running the action again. Also, these additional adjustment layers will only work with Elements 11.

However, the layer mask the adjustment creates is editable – you can edit it to your heart’s content!


By clicking the button below, I agree with the Terms & Conditions.


These actions are going to be an integral part of the new line of actions from the Graffishop, starting with Hipster (look for it in January 2013)

The actions in the download above are easily added using Add-)-Matic, or you can manually load them in to Elements 11.

personally, I’d get an Add-O-Matic, though……  :)
