Watercolour PSD template

Watercolour-Friday-FreebieThis weeks Friday Freebie is a spin off from an article I wrote for Digital Photo Magazine a while back in which I created a bunch of images which, when combined together, create a great watercolour effect. Well I’ve made things easy by creating one of my templates in PSD format and sharing it with everyone for free.

If you’re wondering what a Photoshop PSD template is, then the answer is simple. It’s a Photoshop file with all the layers intact allowing you to tweak the end result as you see fit. There’s even a layer called “Your photo here” which is where your photo needs to be added.

With several layers and lots of fine textured detail, this weeks Friday Freebie PSD template comes in at around 81mb. If you’re not on a fast internet connection if might take a few minutes to download.

As always, if you create a photo using the Friday Freebie then let me (and everyone else) know by leaving the link in the comments below.
