Hello, and welcome to freedigitalbackdrops.net. My name is Gavin. I’ve created this site to explain and teach people how digital backdrops can be used to transform photos. I am also including a resource library containing hundreds of theme and studio backdrops that can be downloaded for free.

I have been creating and using digital backdrops for 7 years. I’ve learned a lot of tips and tricks that I am only too happy to share. The first thing I learned was that anyone can use digital backdrops, once they know how.

A digital backdrop is a high resolution image that can be used as the background for a photo; you can replace the background of any image and insert one that suites your taste. This process is easily done with photo editing software such as photoshop or a free program call Gimp.

If you know the basics of photo editing you should have no trouble learning this new skill. It all comes down to 3 steps – as you can see in the diagram below.


Hopefully the tutorials will guide you in the right direction and soon your be busy creating images like the samples below. If you need help do not hesitate to ask me.



Site Contents:

* Backgrounds by the hundreds – all free to download.

* Step-by-step tutorials that teach you how to use backdrops – both Photoshop and Gimp versions.

* Step-by-step tutorials teaching you how to create your own digital backdrops, using Photoshop only.

* A free digital ebook that teaches you how to create your own digital backdrops. Feel free to share this ebook with your friends.

* Digital photo props are provided. These offer a fantastic way to create a fun look to portrait photos.


As you can see, I have a ton of content already created for you to use. I think there is already plenty to get you busy creating some stunning images.


What is coming in the future?

* I will be adding more digital backdrops, lots of theme and studio backgrounds.

* I will be adding a lot more tutorials to teach various aspects of digital backdrop use.

* Every month you will have a chance to win my premium digital backdrop collection. I will be offering other prizes as well.

* Any photography resources that I think you will benefit from.
