Since 1997 the Graficalicus Web & Graphics Workshop has been online bringing you tips, tricks, tutorials, tools and other goodies for Photoshop & Photoshop Elements. The goal has been to provide an online resource for professional, semi-professional, and amateur photographers, Photoshop users & graphic artists.
A simple idea a few years ago has turned into a truly remarkable utility for Photoshop Elements users. I created the Add-O-Matic as a side project to help myself get new actions into Elements quickly and easily, and in the years since its introduction, it has become the single most useful tool any Photoshop Elements user can own. Thank you all!
Graffi's Action Packs for Elements are based on the same internal engine, and have become equally popular for their one-click installation format into an increasingly confusing file structure within Photoshop Elements. Despite several imitators competition, Handy Actions is still the number 1 action pack in the Graffishop (it's not called the "Swiss Army Knife for Elements" for nothing!). Other action packs provide options for creating B&W images, frames, glamour shots & some are just for fun.I've started creating Lightroom Presets, too, and they can all be found in the Lightroom category of this shop. I plan to update this section regularly, so check back often - or follow my blog, Twitter or Facebook feeds, or Pinterest Pins for the latest!

I've finished the next two sets of Lightroom Presets for my Hipster [vintage] Series, and I will be uploading them here soon!
Retro, Vintage, Cool - imagine toy cameras and faded polaroids and groovy prints. Official announcement coming to Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest & my blog and maybe a coupon for the early birds!
Please have a look around and see what you think of my new shop! This new setup makes it easy to offer:
No shipping charges or "handling fees" - just choose what you'd like, head to checkout, and download immediately!
Mike (aka, Graffi!) is available to help with transactions, technical issues, or answer questions about any of the things sold here in the shop (and will often help with other stuff NOT sold in this shop!). Just click the Contact Us link at the top of each page.
I have been using Paypal to process all credit and debit card transactions for over a decade, and have never had any issues arise with their security. I'm confident in their security measures, and appreciate their low fee structure - which means no additional expenses passed on to customers. This also means low prices on all the products offered here!
Because of the nature of this shop, I can't offer refunds on these downloads. Please ensure that you are purchasing the correct product for your system and version! Questions? Just ask, and I'll be happy to help!
Graffi is really Mike, the one-man-band at Graficalicus.com. I live in Durham, NC (6 miles from Duke University and 7 from the University of North Carolina) and really dig the city, with its awesome collection of foodie restaurants and local breweries. There's also some great photo spots in and around the city and surrounding areas, and I never seem to get out to them as often as I'd like.
I've been using Photoshop since the late 1990s, and I have been a Photoshop Elements user and fan since version 1. I created the Add-O-Matic when Elements 3 was released as a way to easily copy my Photoshop actions and other add-ons into the easier-to-navigate Elements interface.
Lately, I've released some really useful photography actions like Handy Actions and the new Adjustment Layer actions sets. My latest project has been developing new sets specifically for Elements that include the Hipster Kit series.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll follow some of my adventures in my blog, my Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest pages, my photo journals on 500px and Flickr, and some of the other places I hang out when I'm online!
