Ahoy! Shiver me timbers... this overlay set just may be the cutest yet! The entire overlay set was created after having come up with an idea for what I had hoped would be a fun styled session with my two girls. The idea started with just a cardboard box, a giant sharpie marker, a torn striped shirt, an old cardboard roll from a small rug, a crib sized sheet, and some packaging tape... oh and a few toilet paper rolls for a good set of binoculars... :) The overlays took it all to a whole new level. I really think the handmade aspect adds to it, and seriously there is not really any talent needed here. Drawing lines on the box and squigley lines should make it fairly obvious that it is a boat... once you add the waves, they won't leave any doubt. If you are a photographer and still a little unsure of the versatility this set offers; I would say it is excellent if you photograph children and want to add a little creativity to your sessions. With a few cheap items you can really create something memorable for your clients. Although, when I started working with my photographers' pictures, I was a little surprised just how easy they were to work into other sessions, not necessarily shot with this set in mind. So, they may not be as versatile for a professional photographer as some of the other sets, but they are still so much fun to play around with and add a lighthearted whimsical touch to your sessions. :)

What versions of photoshop are compatible?
The overlays work in adobe photoshop 7.0 and up. I have also had people manage to load them into earlier versions of elements (version 5 and up) I believe in Elements 5 they are loaded under your "cookie cutters toolbar."

Vol.25 Digital Eye Candy products are created as a resource for photographers. The purpose is to enhance your photography, or personal/professional blog. Please do not purchase and sell the overlays for any purpose other than their intended use. You may use also the overlays in your product photography for your etsy shop. Example: I recently had a customer who knits cowls for dogs. She asked if she could incorporate the overlays into the photo shoot representing her product. I have absolutely no problem with that, it is exactly what they are intended for. Also, this probably goes without saying, but the shapes/templates should not be used to create art prints for resale.
