Comments & Reviews

  1. TG says:

    Love what you guys offer, but PLEASE CONSIDER breaking down the size of the download into smaller packages. This will help many of those on slower ISP.

    Thanks!

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey TG,

      Thanks for getting in touch with your feedback, I really appreciate you taking the time!

      I’m really pleased to say that we have now split this pack into smaller sized pieces to make it easier for you to download πŸ™‚ I really hope this helps, TG, and thanks again for your feedback! Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or queries. I’m always happy to help!

    Ooh! I wish I had seen this before I got the bundle! LOL

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Sorry to be tempting you with more goodies, Su! I hope you are enjoying working with your new bundle resources πŸ™‚

  3. Cindy says:

    CS 4 version here, boo hoo

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Cindy,

      Thank you so much for getting in touch, I’m really sorry to hear that the brushes in this pack will not work for you – unfortunately they require CS5 or higher to work with them. The great news is that the rest of the pack should definitely work for you in your Photoshop CS4! πŸ™‚

      Thanks again for getting in touch, Cindy. If there is ever anything I could assist you with please do get in touch. I’m always happy to help!

      • Kristan says:

        Ben,

        I am using Photoshop CS5 and the brushes will not load for me either. Could there be another reason I am running into this issue?

        • Ben Neeves says:

          Hey Kristan,

          Thank you so much for getting in touch! I’m so sorry to hear that you are having some trouble with your brush files! I’ve just sent you an email to investigate this further and help get you up and running again. I hope it helps!

        • Sandy says:

          It could be that the brush sizes are larger that 2500 pxl limit that some versions of PS have. One image on this page mentions up to 5000 pxls.

          • sarah-jane@designcuts.com says:

            Hey Sandy,

            Thanks so much for your help on this!

            It’s a great thing to check for anyone else who may be having issues πŸ™‚

    So amazing! Ditto splitting the download into two or more, this always helps!

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Morenike,

      Thank you so much for your awesome comment, I’m really pleased to hear you are liking the look of this pack πŸ™‚ I’m pleased to report that we have now divided up this item into smaller pieces along with the complete download to help you get up and running with your resources faster!

      I hope this helps, Morenike, and thank you again for your comment! If you ever have any questions or queries then please do let me know. I’m here to help!

  5. Lisa D. says:

    Awesome! And such a great price as well. Love Chris Spooner’s work!

  6. Karen says:

    looks very nice, im tempted. πŸ™‚
    But still had been trying to download 3 files of the big bundle at 1+ gig each and download keeps failing and im running out of data allowance for this month. So have to wait till next month to try to complete it.

    • SJ Duff says:

      Hey Karen,

      Thanks for getting in touch with some lovely feedback!

      I am really sorry that you are experiencing issues with your recent bundle purchase. I have just sent you over an email to see if there is anything i can help you with in regards to this.

      Don’t worry, as this product is a marketplace item, the great news is it won’t expire so you can definitely take your time picking it up πŸ™‚

      • Karen says:

        Thankyou, if the new NBN rolling out soon in out area is faster that will be great. However they are not doing connections direct to houses just the local exchange so it might not speed it up either. (semi rural here)

  7. Jenny Lens says:

    Oh pls don’t ever stop your large file downloads for those of us on faster connections! Pls add smaller for others.

    I LOVE the big downloads! I thought I’d lose my mind when I bought files from a variety of scrapbooking sites a couple years ago. One bloody file at a time, from one package of many files. I had the hardest time keeping track of what downloaded!!

    Although I clicked, some just didn’t kick in.

    AND because files are often named very differently than the download package, it’s really time consuming to match what downloaded vs what still to download.

    Pls remember some of us CAN handle the big files. Big and small, pls and thanks!! Love ya all.

    • SJ Duff says:

      Hey Jenny,

      Please don’t worry! The One Complete Downloads aren’t going anywhere, we are just going to include split downloads for the larger files that may cause trouble for anyone with a weaker connection πŸ™‚

      I can completely appreciate that only having the individual links could be quite time consuming so rest assured we won’t make these compulsory as we could all be here all day!

      I am really glad that the one complete download files are working well for you and thank you so much for the feedback! We really appreciate your feedback and will use it to work on improving our deals to better suit our community’s needs. We want our community to love their purchases so If there was anything about your Design Cuts experience that you feel could be improved we would really appreciate it if you could let us know πŸ™‚

  12. Kelvin Lim says:

    Hi, for this acrylic design toolkit, it is sold as a standalone product and not bundled with any previous DC bundles right? Cause I’ve had bought so many goodies that it is getting kinda hard to keep track of! πŸ™‚

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Kelvin,

      Thanks so much for getting in touch. I can certainly help you with your query πŸ™‚

      I’m pleased to report that this is a completely standalone product that has never featured in any of our previous bundles.

      I hope this helps, Kelvin, and thank you so much for your incredible support! The whole team & I really appreciate it πŸ™‚ please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any other questions. I’m always happy to help!

  13. Tonya says:

    How useful is this with Illustrator? I know some of it is usable in Illustrator but I’m wondering how much of the flexible design options are available without Photoshop. At this point, in addition to Illustrator, I only have an older version of Photoshop Elements but many things don’t work with Elements.

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Tonya,

      Thanks for getting in touch, I can certainly give you some more information about what files from this pack will work for you in Illustrator πŸ™‚

      I’ve sent you an email to go in to more detail about this. I hope it helps, and please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any other questions. I’m always happy to lend a hand!

  14. gregosborne9 says:

    Just purchased this toolkit. I am currently on Mac and PC platforms (haven’t been on PC since 2004). Did I miss something that would clarify the installation of the brushes? Thanks!

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Greg,

      Thanks for getting in touch and thank you for your purchase! I really hope you enjoy your new resources πŸ™‚ I can certainly help you with installing your brushes!

      I have just sent you an email to get some more information from you and assist in getting you up and running with all of your new items!

    i’m absolutely loving the quality work put into this bundle! thanks team! I do have one question though regarding the photoshop brushes. I’m a newish user to PS and i think i have a good handle on the difference between tool presents and the brush presets. How do i make the brushes in this pack work as a flow (rather an an individual image)? they don’t seem to work to well visually for me straight from a fresh install when used without any specified presets. is this something i have to customise myself, or am i missing something? sorry if my meaning is unclear.

    • SJ Duff says:

      Hey Hayley,

      Thanks so much for you comment and the awesome feedback, we really appreciate you taking the time to let us know!

      You are new to PS and I am new to DC πŸ™‚ rest assured I can certainly help you with this! I have just popped you over an email to get a bit more information from you.
