Sometimes simple things like downloading aren’t as easy as we’d like. We love sharing special free products with our customers, but with tens of thousands downloading our freebies, it makes it difficult to help everyone with downloading, unzipping and installation issues. We need to set aside time to fully support our paid customers and work on future product development.
Most MCP free Photoshop actions and free Lightroom presets are available on our website. The most current ones are also available on the MCP Facebook Page for easy access. Seasonal goodies, like holiday cards, can only be found on our Facebook Page, so you will need to “like MCP” to grab those.
From our website, you literally add the item to your cart, checkout using the “For Freebies” $0.00 option (unless you are buying something else), and then navigate to the download page. If you miss it, see the FAQ section for screen shots on locating them. If our cart gives you a problem, it is almost always resolved by deleting your cookies and cache and revisiting.
For the quickest access, just go to our Facebook Page. 99% of the time these downloads work great – 1% of the time, the Facebook Apps used to distribute free products have glitches. We apologize in advance to those in the 1%. It’s almost always browser incompatibility, pop-up blocker, or firewall issue, but is beyond our means to fix. If you experience problems, you may let us know your browser and version number and we can inform the “Facebook App Company.”
Below are details on how to find the freebies on Facebook and download them.
Once downloaded, as with all MCP Products, you need to unzip the items. Most computers come with unzip software to decompress the files. If you do not have this software, please Google unzip software. A few common ones are winzip, 7-zip, and freezip. Once unzipped, install actions into Photoshop or Elements, presets into Lightroom or ACR, or open .PSD templates directly in Photoshop.
