Hello,

New to FXHome. I realise that I can create my own overlays but is there a source for overlays (the downloads on this site seem to be for effects for the other products)? I am particularly interested in magazine-style overlays.

I suspect that since overlays are in png format, they have to be designed for a specific print size, as resizing would degrade quality: do you have any tips for me on this score please?

THank you!

I believe there are other magazine overlays available from www.tubetape.com . Otherwise, you can create your own in an image editor such as Photoshop or GIMP relatively easily.

Hello,

We sell two volumes of Magazine Covers. We also carry Movie Poster overlays. You can check them all out at http://www.tubetape.net

As Axeman mentioned you can also create your own in a program like PhotoShop. Choosing the right fonts and spacing is key to getting that Magazine look. Also make sure to blur the background in your composite. It will make the subject and cover jump out.
