    I recommend this product

    Easy to use

    Living at the coast I am primarily an outdoor photographer and sometimes we have just plain blue skies over the ocean, so creating big fluffy clouds with this Preset really adds an entirely different depth to my photos and makes them POP!

    Perfect cloud brushes

    I have not come across a better way of adding clouds to a boring blue sky until now. With Nicole’s brushes and easy to follow tutorials even putting clouds behind bare trees is so simple. Thanks Nicole.

    Great Brush Presets for adding Cloud.

    Before I buy The Cloud Nine, I am lazy to replace the plain blue sky with cloud sky overlay. Now is different, Cloud Nine so easy and fast, Thanks Nicole

    Excellent clouds even better videos

    Nicolesy's clouds are really great to fill in dull blue skies and her excellent videos show you how to not only put the clouds into your pix but to also change the colors and density so they look like the real thing! Highly recommended and yes I paid full price for them :-) ... steve
