  2. This collection makes it possible for anyone to design their own images for printed promotional materials, even amateur designers. When designing your own poster, postcard, etc, you may have a specific look in mind. Sometimes the best way to do this is to find a stock photo that comes close and incorporate graphic effects to create the image you need. Thanks for the great tutorials!

  3. These look great. I always find them helpful. I think its wonderful how the design community is so willing to share their knowledge with others.
