Just bought the Ron’s Horror Bundle, but sadly there are no tutorials included. And all I come up with when I search Google seem to be illegal download sites! :(
I will be using these in Photoshop Elements 11 and I need some pointers how to apply them, especialy for assigning colors and making them look as realistic as possible.
Please share if you have any links to easy-to-understand brush tutorials.

It would be great if he included tutorials of how he made the promo images though!

Thanks,
Peter.

Some of his sets he does include a PDF

Do remember that if you find they will not work in your version of Photoshop then there is a 30 day refund policy

Brushes ought to work in Elements. I think it has the same brush engine as Photoshop.

Yeah, I’d have apreciated some instructions myself. But the closest I got was a brief bit of info on how to do the flame effect in one of the flame packages. The .pdfs are mostly just references for what the brushes look like.

Thanks everyone.

The brushes work fine in Elements, it’s just that they’re all black/white. Just looking for some pointers to obtain eg. realistic looking blood colors, realistic fire, etc…

Not usually though. We’re pretty much on our own for the most part. But yeah, there are some packs with styles as well as brushes.

Ron’s Flames has an adobe pdf tutorial on how to make more realistic flames included in the brush package. 

http://www.daz3d.com/rons-flames

there’s also some youtube videos that can offer some tips (links on the right)

That tutorial were part of the sample brushes linked above as well. It’s a nice one though I ran into a couple of things that made a bit of hitch for me. One can simply be due to languages as my photoshop is in swedish and not in english (which I probably going to change soon, since most tutorials are in english) But I didn’t find anything resembling Color Burn, only Color

My other problem, which is probably something simply I am overlooking cause I expect it to be more complicated… is how to actually move the grouped layers onto another picture smile

Other than that I I didn’t had any trouble with the tutorial, and liked what little I have seen so far of the samples, and I do plan to get hold on some of Ron’s brushes.. eventually smile

Which version of Photoshop do you have? The Colour Burn blending mode is recentish - CS3 I suspect.

If the images are the same size you can just drag a layer across while holding shift and it will be placed in the same relative position (if they aren’t the same size then holding shift as you drag just centres it)

I have CS6, which apparently will turn into CC or osmething sometime this week if I understood everything correct. But it can simply be that it is the language that botcher things up, i am going to see if i can photoshop into english and see what it says.

As for the moving, I think i have understood the general way to move things, but I tried using that to move that group of layers onto another picture, and it didn’t work. Will experiment a bit more with hat tomorrow. Hopefully I am a tad bit more awake than smile
