PosterPress for Photoshop

By: Ian Barnard Rating:

I love vintage travel posters, especially original ones from the early 1900s, with their simplistic illustrations and art deco typefaces. Trying to recreate a poster like that takes longer than you think in Adobe Illustrator. Now you can do that quickly and easily with PosterPress.

PosterPress smart .PSD (Layered Photoshop Document) is set up so you all you have to do is drop in your photo and it instantly turns it into a simplified illustration which blends over the border, has subtle paper flecks, halftones and paper folds which adds age and a folder with editable text with it’s own rough texture.

PosterPress for Photoshop

I have teamed up with travel photographer Adam Barlow to bring 12 photos from around the globe to use in your very own posters. Plus I’ve complied a 3 page list of vintage art deco typefaces, available free and with previews and links to download them.

PosterPress is not an action but a layered Photoshop document, set out like this:

• Smart Object: Layer for dropping your Photo in.
• Textures folder: Change or add subtle flecks or paper folds
• Text folder: Insert the text you want here and apply rough ink to your type
• Photo folder: Settings to adjust the simplicity effect on your photo
• Background folder: Change the background color

Included in this set:

• PosterPress .PSD – 3000px x 2000px 300dpi (Landscape, Portrait, Square)
• PosterPress .PSD – 4500px x 3000px 300dpi (Landscape, Portrait, Square)
• PosterPress .PSD – US Letter Size 300dpi (Landscape, Portrait)
• 12 Travel Photographs by Adam Barlow of Donal Design:
• 18 Textures (subtle flecks, Rough Ink, Haltone, Paper Folds)
• Instruction booklet (.PDF) includes visual font list of vintage type & links to download them.

Software requirements: Adobe Photoshop CS3 and newer. Will not work in Photoshop Elements or Corel Draw.

    I finally figured out how to make it work, maybe an instruction video would be helpful.
    Very cool product!

      Hey Elisabeth,

      Thank you so much for coming back to us to let us know that you are all up and running with your PosterPress now :). I really appreciate your suggestion of possibly including an instruction video, and we will happily pass this on to the designer for you!

    Hi Annabelle, do you know if this will work with Affinity?

    • Annabel Smith

      Hey Kristen,

      It is great to hear that you are interested in the PosterPress for Photoshop. We have tested this pack on our side in Affinity Designer, and are actually able to open and work with these files. I hope that this will be able to work for you too, however just in case you do experience any difficulty working with it in Affinity, we do always offer our 30 day money back guarantee!

    It doesn’t work! When it says “double click to add your photo”, it won’t let me add my photo.

    • Annabel Smith

      Oh no I am really sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulty with your Poster Press Elisabeth!

      We do always thoroughly test all of our products before they release, and we have not experienced this on our side. If you can possibly email us over a screenshot of what you are seeing to, I will definitely be able to help you with this!
