  6. Superb Photoshop tutorial, will try with my photos

  7. Frankly speaking I never heard about these “plugins for Photoshop” before. This is fantastic and a very new thing to me. The effect you have created is simple yet one should know the way in which you have done it outside Photoshop. I am now heading over to the site you have mentioned and would like to create a vintage effect to one of my latest image.

    One more thing; good a blog in this niche. Way to go but I can see you will soon be there.

    All the best

  11. Hey, they sepia effect you used on that image is really cool. I have been using photo filters to edit some of the pictures on my website, but I am going to give this method a shot and see how it turns out.

    Many thanks for the advice,
