Adding smoke to
your image can make it incredibly atmospheric. This download includes seven Super Smoke

and you can create the effect with your photographs with the Zombie Photoshop Aciton.
Create blood stains, black veins, wounds and much more. Check out our tutorial, too.

the effect for you, simple colour over your subject and hit play. Rather than a
burning building style of smoke, this has a more gentle, other-worldly feel.

without being too gimmicky. Convert people, animals or objects into see-through
ghosts. This download comes with ten effects and ten real film grain textures to
add extra atmosphere to your photos.

an uncomfortable distortion effect with Disturb for Photoshop. Choose from six

colour effects to choose from.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without fake blood that turns pink
and gets everywhere, but there’s no clean up required with the 50 Glossy Blood
Splatters brush set for Photoshop. There’s a gradient map included to stop the
splatters from looking flat, so you can bring our your inner Dexter this October.
