Technical Details

As a former graphic designer and art director in charge of producing printed boxes, posters and advertisements for world-wide entertainment brands, I am extremely picky about resolution and detail.

BEAUTIFUL WORLD ACTIONS:

• Bonus Actions will work for CS 2-6, for Adobe Creative Cloud, for PSE 11+ or PSE Versions 7-10 using the Actions Player mode (included in all Elements Products). (Many PSE 6 users have purchased and used these actions but I cannot offer technical support for PSE6 so purchase at your own risk.)

BEAUTIFUL WORLD OVERLAYS:

• The overlay files are a minimum of 5616 x 3744 pixels, or 18.7 x 12.4 at 300 dpi. I designed these overlay files to be used in Soft Light (primary usage), Overlay, Multiply and Screen Modes, but feel free to experiment with other blending modes.

• Overlay files are not actions. They are not installed. They are jpg files that you save on your hard drive, an external or a cloud server and access as needed.

• Cloud overlay jpgs are high-resolution, most at 5616 x 3744 pixels, or 18.7 x 12.4 at 300 dpi, although some are even larger to offer additional easy and options for placement.

• Bonus Actions will work for CS 2-6, for Adobe Creative Cloud, for PSE 11+ or PSE Versions 7-10 using the Actions Player mode (included in all Elements Products). (Many PSE 6 users have purchased and used these actions but I cannot offer technical support for PSE6 so purchase at your own risk.)

BEAUTIFUL WORLD TEXTURES:

The Beautiful World Textures are the largest I’ve ever released to accommodate the ever-increasing dimensions in digital photography. The texture files are 5616 x 3744 pixels, or 18.7 x 12.4 at 300 dpi. I designed these texture files to be used in Soft Light (primary usage), Overlay, Multiply and Screen Modes, but feel free to experiment with other blending modes.

• Texture files are not actions. They are not installed. They are jpg files that you save on your hard drive, an external or a cloud server and access as needed.

• Bonus Actions will work for CS 2-6, for Adobe Creative Cloud, for PSE 11+ or PSE Versions 7-10 using the Actions Player mode (included in all Elements Products). (Many PSE 6 users have purchased and used these actions but I cannot offer technical support for PSE6 so purchase at your own risk.)

FORCE of NATURE, Packs 1 & 2:

• Overlay files work with all versions of Elements, Photoshop, and GIMP (a free editing program, click here to check it out). This product is not compatible with Lightroom.

• The Bonus Actions will work ONLY in CS2 and higher, including Creative Cloud, and PSE 7 and higher. (Many PSE 6 users have purchased and used these actions but I cannot offer technical support for PSE6 so purchase at your own risk.)

• All overlay files are high-resolution jpegs sized at 40 x 60 inches at 72 dpi. This translates to 14.4 x 9.6 inches at 300 dpi or 4320 x 2880 pixels. As I former graphic designer and art director in charge of producing printed boxes and advertisements, I am extremely picky about resolution and detail. I personally have used these textures to print on large (40 x 60″) canvas with no issues with dpi resolution.

• Payment is required via Paypal or a credit card. Once your payment clears, you will receive an email with a link where you can download your textures. Due to the nature of this digital product, all sales are final.

• All overlay files are high-resolution 300 dpi jpegs. Some may even be larger than your canvas size — this is to provide you with additional editing options for moving the clouds around to best fit an image without having to try to rez the clouds up, which can create printing issues.
