Hey all, just a catch up really to let you know whats going on regarding the downloads that are here. First of all, let me explain exactly what our intent is and what our goal is surrounding the downloads. Back last month we released the first texture pack that gave you some 50 high-resolution texture images.
We will now give you a further pack of 5 high-resolution digital backgrounds followed next month by a pack with two characters, male and female shot against a white backdrop for you to easily select. You can drop them into any image creating great images.
We must make something clear about the content we are giving away. First of all, you are allowed to use them anywhere you like for any reason. The quality is there for you to crop and resize and you can combine the three packs to complete an image. You will have a background choice and character choice. You can then add any one of 50 textures and use blend modes to create a great mage from scratch.
Right, now for clearing something up that is becoming a bit of a nag, to be honest. We do not give these packs away for you to pass off in camera club competitions as your own work. They are for mixing with your own work if you are an artist etc or to practice with if you are a photographer that doesn’t get outdoors much or does not have access. I think that camera clubs can be very protective of work that is not strictly their own. Personally we don’t have any issues with you using them as you wish because that’s how they are intended but, I suppose you have to respect club rules. If camera clubs are not your thing then guess what? Go ahead and enjoy creating cool stuff and do as you wish.
So just to recap, we will release the background pack towards the end of this week followed by the final pack of characters next month. Our long term goal is to bring you tutorials and packs that can help you along in your work. We will be holding a couple of portrait masterclass groups in the near future so watch this space.
