CU Overlay Set #8

Today I have a set of 6 CU Overlays in .png form. I hate doing previews for overlays because you really need to see the entire thing for detail, and grey is so ugly. I ended up doing two previews but you still won't be able to see the detail unless you download and play with them. They are all taken from photos that I took recently in my travels. The download is huge for some reason. One photo I tried to save 10 different times and no matter what I did it was over 20 mb. And that makes no sense to me because all the original pictures are the same resolution (4000 x 3000), and all the other overlays ended up being between 6-9 mb. If you are new to my blog you can check the archives for the other overlay sets. I will try to get another layered template up for you tomorrow!

This is what your papers can look like with Overlay blend mode over a blue color layer.

Hi! I wanted to say I really appreciate you offering the png files and the tiles. I use Photo Impact and can't use the brush or pattern files. I can use templates saved in psd though.

Thank you for sharing your talent and your time from your busy life.

Big Hugs!

Thanks for the overlays. I've had problems with files that seem too large for such a minimal element. It just happens.

For overlays that don't really have any transparency to them (i.e. mostly gray) you can save them in jpg's and reduce the size by about 80%. It doesn't make that big a difference on the appearance of the overlay when used. PNG is a must if the overlay is transparent, but if its in grayscale, jpg is just fine. I, too, learned this the hardway, after having an overlay that was 32mg for ONE! It was just 2.7 in jpg! Anyway, hope it helps, and as always, thanks for the lovelies!

Great overlays - I can just imagine you EVERYWHERE with your camera! I am inspired to go back into some older photos that I took with intentions to do "something" with them in photoshop and try to figure out how to achieve these types of things. Again - thanks for the inspiration.
