ATTN Digital Scrapbookers: 2500 Quilting Squares Activated

Hi everyone-

I've just activated 2500 digital quilting squares, and they are available for members of to download now. 50 quilting squares in each of 5o sets... these things are really cool if I say so myself!
Here's the breakdown:

* 2500 ActionFx Quilting Tiles
* 2500 pre-made Quilting Squares by Al Ward
* 50 sets, 50 Squares per set. 300 ppi
* Stitching Included
* Easily piece them together in a larger document
* Great for Backgrounds, Frames, Digital Quilts
* Commercial Use OK

NOTE: These are images, and not Photoshop Presets. They can be opened and used with any image editing software.

See examples of these on the main page, and members can find the link to the download page there as well:

This is just the beginning... the actions and papers are on their way. The addition of these items places the number of downloads on the site to OVER 109,000!

Kim, if you read this, hurry home! Hope you are having a great trip, my friend.

Have a great day!

It's Monday...

My good friend Kim has been working to help me get this blog rolling and I think it looks just great! Thanks Kim... you are too good to me! She has also been doing a fantastic job getting these ads and updates out. She's a keeper!

A lot of different things in the works... I'm working on a new 'Photoshop for Right Brainers' book, have multiple training videos in production, a new e-zine for Digital Scrapbooking in the works, and a host of other projects... not the least of which is making new content for ActionFx. Members to the site: keep your requests rolling in, and if I have the time and ability I'll be happy to fulfill them.

I love the ad Kim posted yesterday, and I want to add an image to it. This gives a nice close-up of the stitching the new Quilting action (#6 in the set) creates on the final image (seen above).

Members to the site can download this action set right away here.

For those interested in using this in their work and who haven't joined the site, I have a few membership options available here.

Some of my site members have been working with this new set already. My friend Barb Dundas has posted an excellent description and example here. Check it out... and take a look at her Blog while you are at it.

More on the way... I'll start posting video here soon as well. Have a great day! ~Al~

Looking forward to seeing what the ActionFx members do with the new updates - upload your examples and layouts at the group sites:
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Up, Up and Away

Ah, what an interesting year thus far. Thanks to everyone who expressed their concern and offered prayers as my family suffered through the loss of one of our own to cancer last week. Frank is gone, and time moves on... still, he is is and will continue to be missed.

Onto the website news. I've been working to expand the Digital Scrapbooking area in the members section, and have been focusing on tools and tutorials that will help people in that genre. I haven't given up working on general Photoshop items, but for the recent past Digital Scrapbooking has driven my business... and with a family to feed and a passion for that work, I have been channeling my efforts in that direction.

Today I added a few new items... 335, to be exact. First up are 15 new 12x12, 300 ppi digital leather sheets as requested by my friend Thena a few weeks ago.

The second update for the day is the addition of 320 new textured brushes... geometric and quite interesting, if I do say so myself. You can paint with them, Dodge and Burn, whatever you like... and as always, Members can use these Commercial Free.

More on the way... stay tuned!
