    I do not see the downloads for Diana’s example. “Name Your Frame” also I do not see the links to the brush sets.

      Sorry Erik, Diana Day’s running a little behind this month, and the “Name Your Frame” extras are not ready yet. We’ll get those posted as soon as we get them.

      Sorry Paul, Diana Day’s running a little behind this month, and the “Name Your Frame” extras are not ready yet. Since the magazine is starting to arrive in the mail we decided to post the rest of the extras. We’ll get the “Name Your Frame” extras up as soon as we get them.

    I apologize to all my readers for the delay in having my Extras for the Name Your Frame tutorial. I’ve been wrapped up in getting ready for a biking trip across Michigan, which is where I am right now. As soon as I return on the weekend, I’ll get them ready to be posted.

    Diana’s Name Your Frame brush download for the set “Real Brush Strokes Part II” seems to be an .rar file not an .abr file. Why is that? I don’t know how to handle an .rar file, so I did not download it.

      Hi Dorrie,

      Sometimes downloads of brush files are compressed, most commonly in .zip format. Rar is another compression format. When extracted, the .abr file is inside.

      There are a couple extraction apps I use that will extract RAR files. One is free RAR Extract Frog:

      One little app I just love and have used for years is “UnzipThemAll,” which extracts several types of formats, including Rar. But the best thing about it is if you have a folder of multiple files that need extracting, all you do is point the app to that folder, it finds all the compressed files, and unzips them all at once. It can be downloaded free here:

      Sometimes there are so many buttons on a download page, it’s confusing. On this page, right beneath UnzipThemAll 1.0.4, is a big green button labeled Free Download. Click that, and it takes you to another page where you’ll see a small green square with a white checkmark inside & to the right of it you click “UnzipThemAll 1.0.4 Free Download.” That downloaded installation file is compressed in .zip format. Once you extract that and install it, you should be able to run it.

      There are no instructions, but it is pretty easy to figure out. When you first open it, a small splash screen comes up. Clicking anywhere on it will Continue. Then you’ll see the dropdown where you select your drive and in the window below that, follow through the path to get to the folder where you download your files. If you download to the Windows Download folder, the path is usually C:\Users\(Your User Name)\Downloads. Or if you download to your Desktop it would be C:\Users\(Your User Name)\Desktop. In the window below that, it will show all the compressed files waiting to be extracted, then simply click the Start button to extract them. Below is a link to a screenshot:

      Hope this helps.

        Thank you for the information, but I choose not to download anymore files just to get another brush. I think it would have been much better to have had the .abr file (which is the brush file format for Photoshop) already available, rather than having to download something else just to do your tutorial. I guess I’ll skip this tutorial or find another way to accomplish the same effect.

    I just found a couple grungy brush sets not on my Extras list that would be ideal for photo masks. They are already rectangular-shaped ready to be used by clicking in place several times on a blank layer to darken them enough. By using Free Transform (Ctrl/Command-T) they can be resized to fit the photo, and then the text appended.

    Check ’em out.

      Thank You Diana. I’ll give them a try.

    Looks like those unzip downloads are just for Windows

      Hi Deborah,

      Sorry, I should have mentioned those two extractor apps are only for Windows. I don’t know of a comparable one to UnzipThemAll for Mac.

      There are free RAR extractors for Mac. Although I cannot recommend an app I haven’t used, this free app looks like it will do the job:
