    Look on their website for most of your questions...www.digitaljuice.com. I've been using them for a year or two. Yes, they're good...kinda wish I hadn't let the cat outta the bag as I think they are a gold mine! They are layered Photoshop files and are 11.25" x 17.25" @ 300 dpi - which is good enough for many applications as a background image. They also include flattened RGB and CMYK files of the same images.

    Agreed -- I have 20 sets. The best thing about them is that they are layered so you can really customize them very easliy.

    Shhhh... let's just keep this between us.

    It's a VERY good deal to get 12 for $250. I have never paid full price, but I routinely spend $79 on a collection when "on sale", and sometimes they include a not-so-good free one - like the flag collection :-(

    I agree!! I had never seen them until I saw Chris's post. I did a search, found them and WOW. If you do printing, on vinyl or otherwise... those things are awesome!! Customize them by turning off and on different layers, changing colors and so on. I looked through them all but hmmm which do those that have them use the most?? I want to get the 12 disk special while they last, thats like buy 1 get 11 free!

    We have some as well and they are great!

    We've been using them for years now for backgrounds in multimedia presentations in churches and youth groups. I discovered awhile back they work great for publications and vehicle wrap backgrounds. I haven't found much of a use on typical signage yet.

    I saw the sale also and I think I am adding 12 to my collection. Chris deserves a commission!!!

    The JD collection is great! It allows us to setup a postcard/business card/banner/etc. in no time & the customers just love it!

    We have over 40 volumes... well worth the money

    Buddy, you can use MOST of them with Corel/PhotoPaint, but some of the transparency settings will not work as advertised in some volumes.

    thanks for the info.
    I looked through them all & picked out these 12:

    I saved my "cart" to return later. Anyone who has then see any duds in this list?

    I will admit I was a little shocked at $65 freight in the lowest, slowest freight choice. Seems high to me, but the deal is pretty good on the product.

    Buddy, you can, (if you have Photoshop) create the backgrounds you want, or use existing Juicedrops files, and flatten the file when finished to be saved as a jpeg to import into corel.

    Be sure to save a layered file duplicate in your customers folder for future alterations.

    Last night I ordered another 24.. That'll put us at about 35 total.

    Doug, you're selection should work out great. The ones you picked will be good for wrap backgrounds and such.

    Buddy, you can import that flattened RGB and CMYK files directly into corel. Then you can powerclip them into whatever you'd like.

    Just to be clear on this, Corel PhotoPaint WILL open up native PSD files. The only thing is, some images have the special Photoshop transparency filters applied, which PhotoPaint does not recognize. Still, it will open them all, just realize that the transparency effects may not always work out as advertised. But as has been described, you can always import the flattened RGB or CMYK file in and PowerClip to your heart's content.

    Thanks for the clarification GraphiX, that should help with Buddy's question.

    Cheers, Bryan
