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.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
