I have PS 7.0 and paid for the file, but it won't download.  I got an internal error message.  I've emailed her & will wait to see what she has to say!

Oh no Schin and Janis! Hopefully it will be worked out soon. I did a few trials with it yesterday and it works beautifully!

Can you post some before and afters? Is it very accurate?

Any news on how accurate this is? I want to purchase but I just wondered what your experience was with it!

Thanks!

I was going to wait to read other's reviews before purchasing this....but it was TOO WONDERFUL TO WAIT!  I bought it this afternoon and put it to the test with a tattoo mock up I was playing with for a friend. It took me about 30 minutes to get set up and figure out the whole "What is an Action in Photoshop" thing (yes, still learning that monster of a program). Then, I hit the magic button and saw my piece magically go from a rough iPhone picture to clean, no background, ready to be vectorized AND it still looks like my handwritten work - I AM SOLD. Buy it. Everyone. Now.  Seriously though, this has me so excited.

Can't wait to hear what others think of this. Now, off to go study the features of this heavenly Vitamin L25.

Erica, thank you SO much for bringing this to our attention.

Awesome! Thank you Chantelle for letting us know! I am still behind and haven't had another chance to play so it's great to have another user's feedback!  :)

I just received an email today with the exciting announcement that the lovely Besotted ladies have partnered with Skillshare to provide a class called "Photoshop for Lettering Artists."  Here's the link to the class: http://www.skillshare.com/classes/design/Photoshop-for-Lettering-Artists-An-Introduction-to-Photoshop/141260050?teacherRef=1993123&utm_campaign=teacher-referral&utm_source=ShortUrl&utm_medium=teacher-referral


It looks like the class is all of about 30 minutes long, so I'm not sure how much detail they will go in to, but I'm willing to pay $10 to find out. I have REALLY REALLY REALLY loved using their Vitamin L25 photoshop Action to clean up my work. It's crazy simple and fast. Can't wait to learn more!  I'll check back here again once I've had a chance to watch the class so I can provide some feedback.
