Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers by Corey Barker

Dear Reader:

Welcome to the book’s download page, where you can download the same images that I used in the book, so you can follow right along with the projects.

I want to give credit to the wonderful people at iStockphoto and Fotolia, who were kind enough to let me use some of their amazing stock imagery in the book. What you’re seeing here is just a tiny sample of the thousands of amazing stock photos they offer. So, please drop by their websites at and and see for yourself.

A few of the shots here are mine, and those are downloadable here, too. Of course, the whole idea behind this book is that you’ll use these techniques on other photos you have chosen, and that you’ll experiment with them, but to start, you can practice on these.

Just a quick reminder: These downloadable, high-resolution photos – from iStockphoto, Fotolia, and myself, and that are made available to you here – are licensed for your personal use only in practicing the techniques shown in the book. They are not licensed for use in any other manner, including commercial projects, websites, or any other use. Thanks for honoring our copyrights.

The videos are embedded using Adobe Flash Player, so if you don’t have it, you’ll need to download it (it’s free) from Adobe’s website at (look under Download on the right). Because they are in Flash, they cannot be saved to your hard drive, but must be watched on this site.

Well, that’s pretty much it. I’m truly grateful to you for buying this book and making this small investment in your creativity. The ultimate goal here is for you to have the techniques to create mind-blowing images and the confidence to experiment and find your own Eureka moment.
