About This Class


In this class you'll learn how to turn your lettering into chalk art in Photoshop. The texture is built completely inside of Photoshop - no chalk required. Once you build the effect, you can easily swap out new artwork and even add and change colors. It's a super easy and fun way to add some texture to your designs and even bring new life to old work.

Great course. Informatice, short , professional and clear. It's not for beginners in Photoshop though. I am looking forward to use it in upcoming projects. Keep them coming!
