    1. Thank you! I added it as a free alternative in the tutorial.

  1. I just want to thank you so much for allowing this tuts to be available. I have been trying to get better at photo manipulation for so long but I just don't do well with video tuts, my brain just does not learn well that way. I need to be able to read the steps and then implement.
    Thank you so much!
