For Corel ® Painter

There are a few resource sets available on this site. The PNG files do not work with the tool directly as the app uses 24bit only, so if you do wish to use the PNG files then you will have to convert them from 8bit to 24bit etc but there are some nozzles sets (the nozzle sets were my first created sets anywhere) as well as grains The format of the nozzles and grains has changed over the years and the presets are in the older format but they are still supported by version 2016. The plugins for the PC available on this site work fine with the 64bit version of the application


Photoshop ® gradients

Gradients are probably an area of Photoshop and Elements that seems to be totally overlooked. Checking out the tutorials on the subject on the web, there seems to be a dearth of details and examples though I would suggest that you check out the graphicxtras channel for 100s of tutorials ideas on how to use them. Gradients, for me, are one of the most useful and creative features, along with custom shapes, in Photoshop as well as in PS Elements. The Photoshop gradients set is a useful toolkit for many great designs as you can use them like a vector design with any size of document or artwork. You can use them in multiple ways such as via the gradient tool and via the layer style dialog and layer fill as well as the standard fill (sadly there is no deco script feature for gradients as with patterns, perhaps that is one for the Photoshop CC 2017 CC 2018 ?). Of course, you can always turn the result of any gradient combination into a pattern and then use that in the deco scripts feature via the edit menu (not ideal but it is a workaround)


Photoshop styles

A really powerful feature of Photoshop has to be the layer effects which is a combination of gradients as well as bevel and glows and shadows and strokes. It is perhaps not as powerful as the Affinity Photo approach to the layer effects and I have seen even more features added in other apps. With the latest CC 2015 release, even more features have been added to the dialog which can be found via the layer menu and via the styles panel. The Photoshop styles are stored in ASL format files and can be loaded into PS and PS Elements and use with any layers such as shape layers and type layers and basic raster layers. With CC, you can also use them in combination with other features in PS such as smart objects and adjustments.


Illustrator plugins

A key set of plugins available on for use in Illustrator CS5 CS4 CS3 etc and includes grids, zoom, contour effects and many more
