Read All About It - The AFX Files Are Out!!

Okay today, no waffling it's first things first....this months edition of the AFX Files is out. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of this wonderful monthly ezine it's a brilliant learning resource from the terrific Al Ward, Mr Photoshop.  If you use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements then this is a must have. It helps you find out about tools and techniques to expand you knowledge and have fun. What more could you ask for?

It's packed with contributions from a host of other amazing people too.  A not to be missed item...and it's free!!

Having said that.....I contribute too, lol. I have to admit that I feel a little like the baby in kindergarten with all that talent grouped in one place. My contribution this month is a short tutorial that shows you how easy it is to use Polar Coordinates in Photoshop. "What are they?" I hear you ask...."sounds complicated". It's not, believe me. Using this filter you can make a circle with a ribbon, string..you name it. It's fast and so easy!! You'll wonder what all the fuss was about.

Click on the image below and it will take you to Al's blog to collect your copy.

(The link has been updated as there was a problem at the AFX site and a new amended link has been posted)

Dear Al. He is one busy dude, eh? I love it when a new "resource" like the AFX comes out. It's like Christmas.

Thanks for this link June. I do use Photo Impact but was still going to download the newsletter to have a look-see at your tutorial but unfortunately I keep getting a Java Error message with both Firefox and IE. Might try again in a couple of days.

Hugs, Keryn

I love your new freebie!! I click on the link to the magazine but I gat a "javascript error on this page use a new browser" message when I get to media fire. I don't even know what those things are. I was wondering if you can help a semmi computer illiterate old lady figure this out. Thanks~ Wendy @ wendym_12972@yahoo.com

Thanks so much for the message you left me about the problem with the AFX link. I did have a problem, but I'm very stubborn sometimes, so I kept checking back and was able to get it the next day. I'm so glad I did too. There's some awesome stuff in there.

Afx has amended their link in a new post as there was problems with the download. Thanks to all of you who let me know.
The new link is amended on my blog too.
