May 22, 2008

A bumper set of 28 torn paper brushes both high and low res. Great when used as an eraser to distress your clean edged images.

You can use the small speckly brushes in the set to create your own torn edges. Here’s how..

  • Set the foreground colour you would like
  • Select one of the speckly brushes from the set
  • Draw a custom shape with ‘Paths’ selected, not fill
  • Right click on the path and selct ‘Fill path’ (use foreground colour)
  • Right click on the path again and select ‘Stroke Path’ (select brush from the drop-down)
  • Do this 2 or 3 times
  • Using the direct selection tool (the black arrow) right click on the path, and select delete path

You should now have a fuzzy ‘torn paper’ edge to your shape.

Photofiltre – Nozzles

May 10, 2008

Ok, so I was looking around for a simple graphics program for my son to use, and cames across this amazing software called Photofiltre Studio. It has many of the features of Photoshop, such as layers, brushes etc, and has a very nice clean user friendly interface. Plus its only 29 Euros – a bargain!

Download a 30 day trial of it here – its only 7.5mb (its a .exe file)

One of the features I liked are the ‘Nozzles’. They’re basically full colour image stamps, and you can either spray them in a line, or stamp them individually. So.. looking at the program files nozzles folder I found that each Nozzle set is just a PNG with the images evenly spaced in a strip. Same witht he brush sets. So.. i had to have a go at making my own. Here are the results to check out. Right-click the image and ‘save as’ to download, then put them into your photofiltre Nozzles folder. There are 3 Nozzle sets in the zip pack, and each image is about 175pixels across. The limitation is lack of control of the size when using the nozzles, you can change it but only by setting them at 25%, 50% and so on.

Alternatively, you can just use these PNGs in any other graphics program.
