I've been working on some images today and I wanted to go for a particular look and background. I have many resources, most if not all, I have paid for so I have the full versions and/or the licensing to use them. I've been looking around the backdrops and overlays that I already have but can't find one that feels right.
I did a free trial on this website so I poked around and saw what I needed there! The perfect overlay!! But to access it, it's $19/month. It doesn't really sound expensive, but I already have several subscriptions and I will probably just use it a few times. I've been contemplating. I can purchase the overlays for more than what the subscription is. It doesn't make sense then.
Just like most hobbies, art and photography resources can get pretty expensive. It's $19 and $10 and $30 here and there. It's like buying small items and you realize your $100 didn't get that far.
The real question is - is it worth it?
For me, I do think so! I've found so many uses for different resources from creating websites and editing images, to printing cards and enhancing artworks. The thing is - some post processing doesn't mean extreme changes. It can be minor details that make such difference.
I'm still in the process of learning more image processing, and I'm pretty glad I started. I've been pretty amused with the endless possibilities of new designs and techniques that come up. I know some people prefer to keep it raw and less processed. I still do some extent, but there are some that just call for some enhancements that I can't resist.
I also use resources for designing my art. I won't lie, I'm obsessed with vectors and fonts. I started buying fonts because I didn't want to get in trouble for using unlicensed font for making signs or personalized items. Next thing I know... I was downloading scripts and various other styles here and there.
