This is my first Question/Answer post here at BittBox, and I plan on doing this more often. All of these questions came in from twitter, so if you have a Photoshop or Illy question you need answered, you can leave a comment here, or send me a tweet. I’ll save all the questions that come in and try to answer as many as I can. To kick things off I have some answers below, just remember, I can’t answer every single question that comes in because of 2 fundamental reasons: 1) I may not know the answer, or 2) I may not understand what you were asking. Ok, lets try to de-mystify Illy and PS a little, shall we? Thanks for everyone who send in the tweets :)

Free Texture Tuesday: Oil Stains

Here’s an interesting fact: each year, Americans spill over 9 million gallons of gasoline, which is the equivalent of an oil supertanker. I’ve captured about a quart of that gasoline for the textures today. This oil may not have been used to power a car, but perhaps you can offer it some redemption by finding some good uses for it in your designs.

Exclusive Freebie: Custom Designious Vector Pack – Voted on by YOU!

Now this is what I call democracy at work. A week or two ago, Alex and I opened up our ears and let the votes roll in about what kind of vectors you wanted the most. Originally, we were going to choose just one genre for the vector pack, but instead, we decided a ‘variety pack’ was in order. So here they are folks, the exclusive vector pack from Designious that you all voted for. The pack includes everything you see below but here’s a quick list: buildings, cute animals, floral, seamless retro patterns, seamless boroque patterns, and musical instruments. A big thanks goes out to Alex and the Designious team for their generous contribution to the community, and props on some mad vector skills :) Don’t forget to leave Alex some feedback in the comments!
