Christmas Gift For All

It is crazy around my house right now, so I am going to keep this short and sweet!

My Christmas gift to you is a free action, White Sands, which is a sweet little action that brightens and adds a touch of haze if you want a clean, hazy/dreamy look. The action is available for free download until January 2nd.

If you have come across this post AFTER January 2nd, don’t despair. You can get White Sands by popping over to my Facebook page. Click on the Welcome tab and if you are already a fan, then the download page will appear. If you are not yet a fan, if you “like” the page, the download link to be unlocked for you.

To download White Sands, simply click on the thumbnail below. You will be taken to Ejunkie for a free checkout. There is a 200 a day free download limit, so if it doesn’t work for you today, come back tomorrow and you’ll be good to go (it’s busiest the first day).

Yes, the action works in Photoshop CS5 and all older versions of both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.


The Everyday Elements newsletter was MIA for December, but will soon be released early for January. I have some exciting new things planned, so make sure you are registered for the newsletter.

Also, if you haven’t heard, I am offering one of two free workshops for those who join Rock the Shot photography forum through my affiliate link, plus provide a gift card to Everyday Elements. Those who were already members will be able to purchase the workshops for a steep discount (I will make a post at Rock the Shot about it January 2nd, with the coupon code and link to register).
