Subtle Retro Texture Pack (Limited Time FREE Bonus)

The most subtle yet detailed brushes on the market. These brushes are ideal for slowly layering on top of your work. Inspired by French Paper's Speckletone line you can easily see beautiful details when you use these brushes including flicks, shives, and the ink that pools inbetween. (3 brushes included)

Easy Halftone (Limited Time FREE Bonus)

The easy halftone pack takes a whole new approach to adding halftone to your work. Instead of just placing halftone on top of your work or using a brush now you can paint it on. 100% non-destructive.

This pack was a joy to make. Plus, it was so fun I used it for 2 hours after I made it!

    Wow! It's like magic. Another fantastically useful tool from Dustin. Beautifully done, and the results are fantastic. I love that once the action is done you can fiddle with layers to adjust the result—all non-destructively. Of course the brushes and the halftone texture work like a charm. It's potent. Every single Retrosupply product I've purchased—and I think I've bought them all at this point—has produced great results for me, saved a ton of time, been remarkably easy to use, and even taught me a few things. Highly recommended! PS: Please Dustin, don't ever stop making tools.

    Hey @Dustin Lee this kit won't let me install the "Subtle Retro Texture Pack" because I am still using CS5. Is there any way you can save down a version for me? Sorry I know I'm kinda in the stone age lol

    Dustin, I tried to buy Retro Matic from your website before I bought it here and your site wanted to charge me $10 shipping. What gives?

    @Scott Russo I just realized this is because these brushes are such high-resolution. I'll create a smaller sized brush for older versions of Photoshop right now : )

    @Scott Russo Just updated the pack with smaller brushes for CS4/CS5. This should work great now. If you have any problems please feel free to message me : )

    The examples shown here are flawless! I was looking for something to criticize and I couldn't find one... so I had to buy it! Looking forward to using these tools!

Does this pack work in CS4/CS5?

Yes, Retro-Matic works in CS4, CS5, CS6 and CC. The only differences for CS5 and lower is that the brushes have made made smaller so they're compatible with brush size restrictions. Even at the smaller size they provide beautiful textures.
