Are you in search of the same “prism overlay for Photoshop” that I use to create incredible images like the one at the top? Well, I have the exact copy but instead of an activation code I have a serial number. The serial key lets me activate or deactivate Photoshop “Prism Overlay” at any time I want.

How did I manage to get a “free” copy? It was available as an “Prism overlay download for free” on several websites over the internet in the days when Photoshop CS2 was in its “olds”. The code was free to download! I would guess that it was an example of a pre-sale marketing and promotion tool, but I’m unable to say that it was a “free” promotion. To be honest, a lot of those who received the “free CD” set ended up spending much money to fix the problems with the installation of the software.

The issue with the effect of freebokeh was that it was unable to show up correctly on printers with higher quality. In other words, it would show up as gray instead of being white. This meant that the image I prism overlay png wanted to use for my “free Photoshop action” would appear very bleached or almost dark when printed. I would need go back to Photoshop to make any needed adjustments or resize the image to print properly. Oh, well, it was free, wasn’t?

I have tried many free bokeh overlays in Adobe Photoshop I have discovered one that worked on my ink jet printer and my computer. It’s called Photoshop RealUI. The program can be downloaded from Adobe’s website. After installation, choose “bokeh overlays” from the “effects dropdown menu, and then click “OK”.

The only downside to the free photoshop action is that you must select the image you wish to overlay and click “choose from the options”. This is all there is to this amazing program. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to master the free photoshop actions. You also have a selection of PNG images to play around with. For example, you can make simple flowers using a color of red and then add a black and white image to give it depth. That’s just one of the many options that are available using this program.
