  1. Thank you so much for your simple and clear tutorial. As a newbie to PS, I didn't know that the blend to screen feature can be so useful! Thank you!!! ;-)

  2. also goalkeeper silhouette is missed. and Steps mess. Step 31 goes after Step 20. Author should be more careful.

    1. Thank you for the comment - I really appreciate you pointing out the errors! I've fixed the steps but there were some stock images link that I couldn't find the links to. It appears that the author does not have links to some of the resources and recommends that you find your own.

  3. Few stock images are missed. I think you should include every stock image that you used in Resources section.
