Two free sites to save the day

These two sites have routinely saved my hide.

Brands of the World has just about any logo you would ever want, in a true EPS format.

The Stock.Xchang has thousands of truly free stock photos. Make sure to check the rights usage for each photo, though.

AE BLING!

This shiny bling style project contains editable text .

There is one texture associate with the file, which is included. The glints are made with Trapcode Starglow.

Everything other than the text layer is switched over to “shy”. So, if you want to see the other layers, turn off the comp shy switch.

Spinning Spiky Star Background

I was playing around with Trapcode Particular, trying to do something completely different, and ended up with this interesting background. You can easily change the color by changing ‘Color over Life’. Also, try changing the Particle Type from Star to Cloudlet for another interesting effect.

Download spinstar.ffx – zipped. Apply preset to any full screen solid.
