    Default Zero Dean's Elephant Skin Alpha Pack v1.0

    Ok folks, I wanted to give something to the ZB community.

    Announcing: alphapackthumb.jpg

    101 16-bit greyscale .PSD files of various sizes.

    These are good for your orcs, trolls, demons, dinosaurs, and yes, even your elephants. In fact, you can probably find uses for these that I can't even think of.

    I left the edges, instead of softening them so that folks will have more options. If you want soft edges, just turn up your RF under the Alpha menu.

    If you're wondering, these are derived from photos that I've taken myself.

    These are free for non-commercial and personal use. And yes, they're even ok for commercial use with credit, thanks, or job offers.

    If you do use these, all I really ask is that you help me clean up and prioritize this package by leaving feedback. If something works particularly well, please let me know. Or if it doesn't work at all, let me know that too, and I'll remove it from the package or make changes. Suggestions are always welcome.

    And f you create something cool with these, please show me!

    Anyone else getting weird scanlines from these PSDs in ZB? I may have to resave these and re-upload...

    The reason for the wired lines is because the image is set to RGB color and in needs to be grayscale.

    In Photoshop go Image/mode/grayscale.

    OK, converting to greyscale and re-uploading the 16-bit main pack to the server... (all done now).

    Converting from RGB to greyscale just dropped the full package size down to 14MB (from 40MB), nice.

    Woody: I get 75GB bandwidth a month originally purchased for a stock photography store/gallery for my work that I never fully developed... so that should cover a few downloads.
