I’m so pleased to announce that Light Play, the newest addition to the Kaleidoscope family, is finally here! Light Play is a set of 23 lovely little luminaries designed for photographers who love to play with light. They work in the same way as the Light Set & Lite Flare and are translucent .png overlays designed to be placed directly on top of your pictures. Like all Kaleidoscope products, they are extremely easy to use, and compatible with all versions of Photoshop including Elements! Check out the video below for a quick demonstration.
Here are some before & afters: (I’ll be posting the exact recipes on my flickr soon, but you can just watch the above demo for opacity/settings/etc….it’s all there!)
…and here is a quick peek of Light Play (not all files shown)
Here is a play-by-play video tutorial of exactly how to use Light Play (it’s super easy, and compatible with all versions of Photoshop!)
Things to note:
** Light Play was designed to be used in the Hard Light blending mode, but also works great in other modes, and even in normal.
**Light Play contains 23 .png files, which are translucent, some nearly transparent. So, when you open Light Play, you’ll want to make sure you have Photoshop set to “view all file types” rather than just to view .jpgs.
** Light Play is 78 MB. Please be certain your computer has enough storage space. Most newer computers do.
**Light Play is NOT a set of actions, but rather a set of translucent .png overlays that mimic light. They lay right on top of your photo. They do not alter your original image at all.
**Light Play is compatible with CS and Elements (all versions of both.)
**Light Play works GREAT with my other products, but can also be added to photos finished with your favorite actions, or other textures.
**Light Play will retail for $39, but through October 13th you can use the coupon code: play upon checkout for 25% off your entire cart!! So, now would be a great time to stock op on those other Kaleidoscope items you’ve been eyeing’ lately! (if you made a purchase from the Kaleidoscope Shoppe within 5 days prior to this post’s date, please contact me for a price adjustment – I’d be happy to honor the discount!)
