July 02, 2013   //   POSTED IN: INSPIRATION, Photog Quick Tips, PHOTOGRAPHY RESOURCES, Tip Tuesday


The other week we wrote a blog post about the new gold foil design trend that is popping up everywhere! We see it in fashion, packaging design, and it's been blowing up in the photo industry too! Lisa McCully of Lisa McCully Photography asked us how photographers can add this new trend to text in photoshop! Today's Tip Tuesday will show you how! Watch the video below and share your creations using this new technique on our facebook page! We'd love to see what you create!

  • Thanks so very much for this tutorial! It inspired me to add some fabulous faux gold foil to my prints in my Etsy shop (Raincity Prints) and I have had such a great response to my new designs! The gold foil you recommended on deviantART is so beautiful and I actually create the effect in InDesign with the same outcome. Thank you!
