Photoshop Tricks for Designers: How to Create Bada$$ Effects in Photoshop
Welcome to the book’s download page, where you can download the same images and brushes, where necessary, 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 Adobe Stock, Photo Art Textures, and PixelSquid 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 and see for yourself.
A couple 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, low-resolution photos from Adobe Stock, Photo Art Textures, PixelSquid, 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.
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.
