Karen Sperling's Artistry

Unique Hand Painted Digital Backdrop Backgrounds

The good news is, there are tons of digital photography backgrounds out there nowadays for photographers, hobbyists, crafters, etc. looking to enhance their photographs and other images.

The bad news is, they all pretty much look alike!

Till now!

Elite Corel Painter Master Karen Sperling (she wrote the original Painter manuals!) is offering unique hand-painted digital backgrounds that will take your photos to a new level to set your photos apart from everyone else's!

The Artistry backdrops are .jpg files readable in any software that opens .jpgs, including Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter.

What a great way to add the Corel Painter look to your photos--without having to learn to use Corel Painter!

You can create your own images either for personal or commercial use. The only things you can't do with the Artistry Backdrops are distribute them and sell them.

These hand-painted backdrops will add pizazz to any subject, including maternity, newborn, kids, seniors, families, weddings, pets—anything that can benefit from interesting painterly backgrounds.

Each Artistry Backdrop comes with two digital files--one vertical and the other horizontal, to fit any source photograph. The Artistry Backdrops measure approximately 4000 x 6000 pixels (vertical) and 6000 x 4000 pixels (horizontal), making them compatible with high resolution images.

It would cost you hundreds--thousands?--of dollars to get hand-painted traditional backdrops that are bulky and heavy and require tons of storage space. With digital backdrops, you can get them for a song and store tons on your computer drives.

So get your Artistry Backdrops today and take your photos to the next (painterly) level!
