  1. Nice tip. Many people forget on the basics which makes them tougher to work on advanced photoshop effects.

  2. hey thats a good tip, i knew it somehow

    but naldz, do u know how to load shapes and stuff easy n fast ?

  3. Yeah CB u are right very nice tips he got a very nice collection in his site really like it.

  4. Unfortunately I do not have stuff it expander to expand the rar file. can you make it available in a non compressed format? That would be fantastic. The brushes look great!

    PS When trying to download stuff it expander, I am required to jump through alot of hoops and I really don’t want to do that.

    Thank you!
