    I have just about downloaded all the video tutorials contributed by you. Every time I play back any of your videos, I learn something new about photoshop. Even though at times I have difficulty emulating effects created by you, I soon discover that it is only a matter of time before I create the effect that I like.

    Thanks for most creative and educational tutorials on the web.

    Corey Barker, I made a wallpaper from your Tutorial and Match outline Uploaded it February 3, 2010.
    Someone asked me “What is my copyright fees?” & if they could use it for their Dating site (BluMatch) that they are building and sent me a prototype link to it..

    But beings I did NOT make the match Outline I told them No for 2 reasons, and gave them the links for your match Tutorial part 1 & 2. so that they can make it themselves BUT would still need your permission to use it in a commercial way.

    But the link for your Match outline is dead..
    Do you still have it (the match outline)? IF NOT I do. I can send it to you and/or with your permission send it to Kenmages so he/she can make it themselves…
