trip lang says:

why there’s many layer on your work tab? you didn’t taught us what was that…

Madhukar Sunuwar says:

Hey, are you familiar with “photo SFX art” (google it)? There you will find a nice free video featuring the way to take brilliant photographs. It made it possible for Matt to shoot photographs which leave you with a wow-effect while you look at them. I hope it helps you as well…

salseroman42 says:

my problem is that when once I create my path and I right mouse click sometimes I get “stroke path’ and sometime “stroke sub path”. either one works, but once I’ve added my glow and attempt to remove the extra lines, only the glow erases and I’m left with my visible path….what am I doing wrong?

jamiesweden says:

Hey i need help! When i go to remove the unwanted sections of the line I am still left with a thin black line… is this due to an incorrect setting in my brush tool? Thanks

EliOceans says:

It’s nothing but a couple of gradients on a black background.

TheLaTourious says:

Cool shit.

How did you do your background? D:

Afzal Hussain says:

Hello there, are you familiar with “Photo SFXart Tricks” (just do a Google search for it…)? On their website you will find a great free video showing the right way to create amazing pictures. This helped Joe to create photos which have a wow-effect while you take a look at them. I hope it will work for you also.

Robbi Walcott says:

Kevin Stollaerd says:

I’ve fixed it by clicking on the brush symbol in upper left corner (it’s next to where you can change the size of your brushes) and I’ve taken the Transparent Red Spray Paint and then you can remove it too. Don’t know if it’s rigt but it works for me 😉

Dave Smith says:

Superb tutorial, cheers.

Wrex Luther says:

Everytime I finish with a picture. It doesnt allow me to save it to my computer. Can anyone please help me

Stiletto Rose says:

can you tell us where to obtain the calligraphy brush and straight line eraser brush

Stiletto Rose says:

I have the same issue. I also think he downloaded caligraphy pen brushes to use it. Maybe this is why? I used a pen size 3pt and line’s did not errase

Avishagi Shoogi says:
