Hello everyone! I have a wonderful digital graphic resource to share with you all today called Graphic Stock. It’s an awesome HUGE DATABASE of digital graphics! You can find seamless wallpaper backgrounds, textures, beautiful graphics, stock images, and more, all royalty free- basically a designer’s dream!
I’m sharing some of my personal favorites in today’s post. To download the ones in this collection, you will have to sign up for a 7 Day Totally Free Trial, where you can download up to 20 images a day. If you don’t want to be enrolled in the paid “unlimited download” membership, simply cancel before your seven day trial is up.
To start your seven day free trial, go HERE.
The above graphics can be located and downloaded by following the corresponding numbers on the image, with the ones in the list of links below:
Again, if you do not want to use it past the free trial, PLEASE cancel your subscription so you won’t have to pay for the membership.
ALSO, Graphic Stock is so awesome, that they want to give one of you a free 6 Month Membership. All you have to do is sign up using either the very top 3 links, or this one HERE.
Most of the images on Graphic Stock come in a rastorized format, which means the they don’t come in separate layers. So I am going to show you how to transform them into transparent digital graphics for your digital designing, using BOTH Photoshop & Pixlr. Pixlr is a free Photoshop alternative, and offers almost all of the same editing tools. The below steps are performed in Pixlr, but you can do the same steps, with the same tools in Photoshop.
After downloading your images from Graphic Stock in PNG or JPG format, open your image up in Pixlr.com
If there are multiple graphics on the image, you need to isolate the graphic you want to use. Using the Lasso Tool, draw around your selection. Press Ctr C to copy it.
To create a new document, go to FILE->New IMAGE. Press Ctrl V to paste it into your new document.
To get rid of the white in your image, use the magic wand tool with “CONTIGUOUS” unchecked and give it a Tolerance of 1. Having Contiguous unchecked will ensure that all the white in the whole layer is selected, and having the Tolerance be so low will effect how “picky” the selection is when it comes to pixels with the exact same properties.
