Randy A. Myers 6/20/2007 8:21:52 AM

Very, very nice, Kristin! I've been trying to get the scratches effect that you have here, but I've had little success. I can't find a pattern I like. The tones are very well done. #4416457

Randy, you can google ps brushes and try to make your own overlays. I like to use a transparent background and stroke over it so that I can save it as a PNG and use it on other photos. You can also colorize your strokes for more looks. #4416721
