Cutout effects with Eye Candy

By | November 29th, 2010|Tutorials, Eye Candy|2 Comments

For all you graphic guru’s out there, we have a slick cutout effect tutorial over in our support area. The graphic you’ll learn to make looks like a hole cut in a surface exposing something behind. I would consider this one of the classic effects every graphic designer keeps in their tool belt.

I love handy little tricks like this that save you time when you’re designing, they make graphic designers lives a little bit easier. This tutorial is a time, and frustration, saver.

There are plenty of other tutorials over in our support area. A few minutes there can help you save time & could even help lower your blood pressure.

    Jimmy, any news about the 64-bit updates? It’s December tomorrow…

      We’re working as fast as we can on the 64-bit updates. The plan is to have them all done by the end of the year, but we’re making every effort to have them sooner than that.

      The version of Eye Candy 6 now supports 64-bit Photoshop CS5. We haven’t made a big announcement because we want to watch for bugs for a while. It has been in use for the past few weeks, so it is pretty safe to try. You can download it here.
