I believe that none of those tools (incl. GIMP) cannot be actually considered as Photoshop replacement because of lack of serious ICC color management. For me, the full color management ability is the primary feature of Photoshop…

What a nice creation in the photosphere,Really It looks very nice..

Any ideas on which versions of Photoshop these brushes are compatible with, I can’t load them in V.7. If only it could load these, can they be converted from a newer version Photoshop? I know there are newer versions in house here.

I’m a pretty preoccupied trekker and must admit that I’m anal about my tools. If there is one nuance that I dislike, it is when my tools give way. That’s why I always get quality gear to gear myself up and be ready for just about anything the trail throws at me.

i liked these tuts

this is very good site

I don’t respect web pages that block content unless you take a stupid survey or accept a stupid offer or something of that sort (like when I clicked on “color blending technique”..) what information from me/my computer do these things capture? do they install spyware/malware? there’s simply no way to know if you can trust these things.. shall look elsewhere for free PS stuff…

very interesting about learn and make myself confident about photoshop
