      While I have had photoshop for a while, I have never really done much with it. I came across this lens and tried it. Took me a while but I was able to make a gingham square! Yay! Thanks so much! =)

      This is, by far, the easiest photoshop tutorial I've seen. Thanks for sharing and I'm going to try this for myself. Fantastic lens! Hey, I just published my fourth lens called the 3 Shortcuts to Happiness and would love to know what you think of it. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Blessings! Sundae ;-)
