FREE Photoshop Actions Holiday Gift From MCP

FREE Photoshop textures and a FREE texture photoshop action:

Thank you to all my loyal Blog readers, friends and fans.  I appreciate each and every one of you.  To show my appreciation, I love making a FREE Photoshop action to share every year at the holidays.

This year my Free action set is called Texture Applicator. You can download the FREE Photoshop actions now! All I would ask in return is that you spread the Holiday spirit by posting to twitter, facebook, a photo forum or on your blog about it.

This action easily allows you to select the texture you desire and place it over any photo. At just a few clicks of a button, you are able to apply different textures to your image until you find the right one. Once you discover the one you want to work with, you are then able to play with the many looks you can achieve with that select texture. And as always, your texture is its own layer mask so you have full control of where and how much texture is applied to the image. Of special note, this action works in CS2, CS3 and CS4 and also works in Photoshop Elements!

To accompany this set, I have compiled a list of 50 texture sites with thousands of free textures you can download.  I have also created a new MCP Texture Sharing Flickr Group where you can share and download textures. Then go to the MCP Flickr Group to share your creations.

Have a safe and Happy Holidays!

    Thanks so much Jodi! I am a new stalker to your blog and have really enjoyed your helpful posts! I am looking forward to trying out your tips & now, actions!! =)

    I’d love to know how to improve my product shots for my wallets, handbags & other quilted items. I want to highlight the details, since it’s all custom, handmade things I make. Any suggestions & critique would be appreciated! =)

      That is how this cart system is set up – in order to download the products – regardless of price, you need to register. You do not give any payment info (select the $0.00 checkout) if nothing has a price above that in your cart).
