Hey everyone! Finally, spring is in the air! Today we would like to share with you some great spring-themed stock images that can be applied as a special visual touch to print and digital cards, invitations, thank you letters, and many more.
But first off, let us introduce you to the amazing graphic resource that these images came from. GraphicStock is a huge database of digital graphics that carries just about everything, including textures, wallpaper, detailed images, and stock images. It is a fantastic source of inspiration and graphics for any designer.
To download any of the graphics from this post, you will have to sign up for a 7 Day FREE Trial, where you can download up to 20 images a day. If you don’t want to continue on to the premium membership where you’ll have privileges such as unlimited downloads, you can just cancel before the trial is up.
Now onto the good stuff! The graphics from this collection can be downloaded from the corresponding number links below.
All of these graphics come in their own individually themed assortments as one image. In this post we will show you an easy way to personalize an image by changing the colors. We will be using the free online image editor Pixlr in this tutorial.
First, open up the image that you would like to work with. We’ll be using this image from GraphicStock. Since it may take a few tries before you get something you are 100% happy with, make sure you copy the image layer when you come across something you like.
Now let’s play with colors! And when we say ‘colors’, we also mean things like hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, etc. There are a few ways to do this and in Pixlr, just about all of them are located underneath the ‘Adjustment’ tab at the top.
Here are some samples of what I’ve done with four these different settings. The important thing is just to play around and see for yourself what works best for your final image. If one way looks good, try to find another because you may find yourself liking that one, too.
And there you have it! We hope you enjoyed that quick tutorial and if you want to try out any of these awesome graphics that GraphicStock has to offer, don’t forget about their 7 Day FREE Trial. That’s up to 20 images a day for an entire week!
