80 Free Light Leak Overlays for Creating Vibrant Photo Effects

I recently discovered a fantastic collection of Daguerreotype photographs from the mid-1800s in the public domain, which I’ve transformed into the perfect tools for producing vintage photo effects.

10 Free Textures To Simulate Holographic Foil Print Effects

Hot foil stamping is a special finish that gives printed material such as business cards or packaging a feeling of quality and luxury.

30 Free Film Dust Textures to Add Dirty Effects to Your Work

In my latest video tutorial I covered 5 ways you can generate film grain effects in Photoshop. One of my tips was to use an actual film grain texture as an overlay, which achieves a much more authentic result than the uniformity of the built-in noise filters. I’ve been busy making a mess on my scanner to produce a range of film dust effect textures using the dust, fibres and speckles from an old burlap sack. The natural scattering of particles produce a great image that can be used to add dirty ...

Free Watercolour Text Effect Smart PSD for Adobe Photoshop

One of my recent video tutorials on the Spoon Graphics YouTube Channel was a guide to creating a watercolour text effect in Photoshop.

I finally found the time to process the effect into a Smart PSD for all Spoon Graphics readers to download. Customise the text, or p...

Threadless x Bucketfeet – a match made in shoe heaven!

Threadless x Bucketfeet Maybe this is the first time you hear about Bucketfeet. Therefore, before I get to the actual news, let me tell you a few things about them. Bucketfeet was inspired by a cheesy yet meaningful gesture between two friends: „Co-founders Raaja Nemani and Aaron Firestein met by chance while volunteering in Argentina. Aaron was an artist from Berkeley, CA living in Buenos Aires and Raaja was taking a year to backpack around the world. Before Raaja left Argentina, Aaron gave hi...
