Free – Torn paper brush set

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.

Things to Do

March 4, 2008

The images is this set come from a 1970s craft book I found in a charity shop yesterday. It’s called 365 Games to make and play. Please read below before you download.

The book was written by Jac Remise, and published in 1975 by Octopus Books Limited, London. Be aware that you should not use these images for any commercial projects at all, and you should probably include a link to the author of the book and publisher when you use them. Use at your own risk!

Here’s the book.. it really is fantastic, although all the models in the book seem to require a cork. My son says i’m going to have to drink more wine…  I’ll try my best
