Thanks, William. I downloaded it and watched the tutorial, but it looks like it'll take a bit of practice to come up with some good-looking results. Also, i'm using CC and it seemed to really bog down the previews...like he said in the tutorial, it sounds like from CS6 on this could be an issue.
thanks for helping out a bonehead!
