Hey guys! Today is our LAST day of freebies. (Sad, I know, but trust me, I am ready for some rest! haha...) Anyway I have a few announcements I want to get out of the way quickly before I dive into that. There are, as you may have noticed, two days remaining in our 12 days of Christmas marathon of giving, but no freebies left so....what could it be?

Dec 11th (tomorrow) - I'll be giving away a copy of the Silky Strokes Master Collection ($60 value!) If you've enjoyed using our free brushes, trust me....these 69 brushes are a MUST. HAVE. All you will have to do to enter is post an image using one of the new freebies in our VIP Lounge group on Facebook (can be a free brush or preset or any combination thereof!) 

December 12th - Reina from Simply Actions and I will be coming together to offer a $200 gift card to B&H Photo! For entry to this we'll simply have you leave comments on our blogs, but more on that when we get to it. This is ALSO, believe it or not, going to be the second anniversary of the original launch of Silky Presets! Yep, Silky is turning TWO! So I'll be celebrating that as well :)

And that will wrap up our 12 Days of Christmas extravaganza! I hope you guys have enjoyed the fun as much as we have! I'll probably go fairly incognito for a couple of weeks after that so I can spend more quality time with my family, and then I'll be back in the new year with lots of energy! And now onto our FINAL freebie of the year!


Earlier this year when I was working on Special FX, I had tried to make some snow overlays to go with it, but I never could satisfy myself with how they looked. But, I think I've finally made one I like and would use myself, so I am happy to give it to all of you for use in your work!

This preset installs just like your other presets (it's not a brush) and to remove snowflakes after applying it, simply open the radial filters from the top Develop panel (it's the circle between the rectangle and the brush):

Then select any you don't want and right click and select delete or simply hit the backspace or delete key on your keyboard. If you prefer, you can also drag and move them wherever you want, or even duplicate flakes to place where you like. 

The snow overlay looks pretty cool by itself, but I've had the most fun with it combining it with some of our other freebies, like MakeItFall and the Frost Brush! Check out some of the transformations you can do:

MAKE ALL THE THINGS WINTER? Haha, I may be getting a little loopy, forgive me. Well guys, is that a pretty cool way to end this or what? I'd love to hear how you're liking all the freebies so far if you wanna leave me a comment below! Otherwise I will see you tomorrow for our first giveaway :)
