Graphic Editors & Tools

these are the graphic editors & tools we use

Font Runner- is a Font Viewer that Denny & Bev had used for years we have tried other free font viewers and it works the best  for us

Argus Preset Viewer- this is a awesome little tool for Windows &  File Explorer  gives you a thumbnail  where you can view PSD files and  Photoshop  Brushes as thumbnails in your Folders  so it works  with Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop & Photoshop Elements .. if you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements you can also see previews of Styles , Patterns , Gradients, Custom Shapes & etc.. a must have tool.. Bev loves his  tool

BrushBox- is a plugin for Photoshop to organize the  brushes it organize the brushes better

Note ! the Photoshop subscription Bev was worried about it at first but her Photoshop was so old she took the plunge you pay per month and get the newest version it is only 10$ a month she has the lowest plan $9.99 and we spend that on supplies or a pizza …Bev absolutely loves it & she thinks 10$ a month on something you love is worth it specially if you do not have other hobbies… but that is her opinion

Colors

Tools, Charts, Hex Numbers & Schemers.Here is a few we use .. I love the Colorzilla tool a little handy tool, for grabbing a color from a web page . & love Color Schemer V 2 it is a old compared to other Color Schemers or Match Color Generators … but it is plain simple I love it … you just put in the Hex number & no fooling with wheels.

 Vectors, SVG  & Clip Art

AI , EPS , and PDF Files

These are vectors svg  and clip art…..  that  can be used  in your projects.. They are safe to use them .as long as you  credit them  Vector sites are for artist and  graphic designers  to post and share what they make they have Free and paid accounts …   You can  edit them and use them in your projects

If You Have Free Account :  You   have to  Credit/ Copyright them and give a clickable link  om your website pages  or post .   most of the sites puts a limit of  downloads per day ..for free accounts

If You have Paid account you do not have to credit them at all   and you get unlimited  downloads   _

AI , EPS ,SVG they   files made with programs like Adobe Illustrator they have their own file type AI , EPS , you can  open these files in Photoshop,  Photoshop Elements,  or Paint Shop Pro versions(X6 to current ) you can even open PDF Files ..

Most of the AI & EPS Files have a backgrounds that you have to remove first and make them transparent …. I use the magic wand tool mostly to remove the background it real easy to remove … then from jpeg or gif

these places are becoming a favorite of mine lately. ..they are used by some of the psp community  to make kits and access tubes/embellishments /elements

Photoshop Brushes

If You Have Photoshop Elements or versions of  Corel Paint Shop Pro X6 or to current you can use Photoshop Brushes in PSP & PE
