This collection comes complete with an 18-page guide (available online or as a downloadable PDF), filled with tips and tricks on how to best use textures in your Photoshop workflow, as well as how to create your own!

More details and ideas are given in the short tutorial video included below.

We’ve previously covered here how to transfer Adobe software products (like Creative Cloud, CS6, Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements, or Acrobat) between two computers, including from PC to Mac or vice versa. In this article we’re going to focus on transferring the actual legal license from one person or company to another, like transferring the title to a car or home between two people.
Moving the software physically is mostly a technical task, but doesn’t cover what happens if the recipient has problems, needs customer support or updates, wants to be registered with Adobe, and be recognized as the new rightful owner and user of the tools. To address those needs, you can follow the transfer process described below to “unregister” the program from the old owner and re-register for the new one.
Adobe wants to give you US$50 worth of professional, high-resolution stock images right now. We’re talking about premium-quality, curated photos, illustrations, vectors, graphics, and more from an enormous collection of over 185 million assets to choose from…
UPDATE (Nov. 2019) – The new Creative Cloud 2020 direct download links are now available.
Adobe has just made a big change to the version availability and usage of its creative software products, both for CC and CS applications…
Since the advent of Creative Cloud in 2012, subscribers have been able to use any version of the CC products that has ever been released. Some customers use prior versions due to compatibility with evolving system requirements, or because co-workers have standardized on the same earlier release.
This morning, there was a widely-shared post on a photography blog with a headline stating that Adobe’s $9.99/month Photography Plan (including Photoshop, Lightroom, and 20 GB of storage) was gone.
This has led a lot of folks to worry that it might no longer possible to buy or renew this popular bundle at a price lower than $19.99/month. Or, that they’d have to scramble to find a third-party reseller who might still be offering the lower price.
OK, so your old computer is running out of gas, you’re upgrading or changing systems, adding a new machine, or switching from a PC to a Mac, or vice versa — and you want to move over your copy of CC/Creative Cloud or CS6 (or CS5 or CS4 or CS3) Adobe software — what do you do, and how do you do it? Just follow our complete guide below, which also works for other Adobe desktop products such as Acrobat, Elements, Lightroom, Captivate, and more.
As we’ve covered previously here, you are generally allowed to install and activate most Adobe software on up to two computers, with the restriction that the software can not used on both systems at the same time. So right off the bat, you might be good to go with installing the software on a second computer, although you may wish to double-check the licensing agreement for your product to be sure.
