    Hi Karen
    The video would only play half way. I tried opening in a new window with same result. I haven’t had any trouble with other videos though so would you please check it. I am running windows Vista.
    Thanks, I am about to buy PSE11 so this video would be so helpful
    Regards and thanks for all the great videos you produce.

      Ted, it is much easier to load styles and effects in PSE 11. It is a long, complicated process in earlier versions and causes many headaches.

    Tried to used this technique and had a small problem. I downloaded the Zombify action without any issues. Finding the MDC Style Pack Nine has been unsuccessful. At one point I found a “Cheat Sheet” for this tutorial that suggested I download the Style Pack from but that is a bogus URL. When I went to that link I saw a message saying that URL may be for sale.

    How do I get the MDC Style Pack Nine? And any others? Are they really free?

    Thank you.

    I enjoyed the video but also could not find the style pack mentioned in the cheat sheet. Found the font successfully!

    Nice work Karen, I just got Photoshop 11, this really helps understand some of the new features. You are so right, this is so much easier.
