• What version of Photoshop do I need for PaintCandy sets?

All overlays and templates are compatible with CS4 and Elements 6 and up.  Basically, these will work with any software that allows you to work in layers.


  • Are "Overlays" or "Textures" the same as "Actions"?

No they are not the same. Actions are presets layers in Photoshop that you have to install. Overlays are Jpegs or PNGs that you place on top of your photograph and change the blending mode to different styles. (screen , overlay, soft light).  Actions are substantially more complex and we recommend only experienced photoshop users purchase these items. Overlays and Textures are relatively simple in application and are therefor appropriate for beginner photoshop users.
