Psdvibe change of ownership

Hello everyone! I’m the new owner of PsdVibe since May 30, 2009. Before going into new tutorials and useful resources for Photoshop, let me introduce myself. change of ownership


Jean-Baptiste Jung



Who am I ?

Jean-Baptiste JungMy name is Jean-Baptiste Jung, but most people call me Jean. I’m 27 years old and I was born in Paris, France. I now live in southern Belgium with my wife and my cat.

I blog since 2007 about various subject as such as Web development, WordPress, Web design. Apart from PsdVibe, I have a few websites, the most known are Cats Who Code and WpRecipes.
I have provided articles for several popular blogs, as such as Smashing Magazine and I’m currently finnishing a tech book about WordPress.

Besides blogging/webdesign/webdevelopment things, I like to travel, having relaxing times with my wife and I love animals. Animal rights is a cause I’m involved.

The future of PsdVibe

I know that sometimes, when a blog or website is sold by its founder, the new owner don’t always care about the blog and the readers, and only want to make some quick money.
To answer a question that many of you shall ask, yes, I’m hoping to make money with Psdvibe, but no, I will definitely not drown the tutorials into crappy Adsense ads without never providing new content.
My goal is to take Psdvibe to a higher level. I’ll continue to provide useful tutorials, resources, and freebies.

Some new things

As a new owner, I don’t want to make big changes to Psdvibe. Anyways, the blog is just great how is it now. Thought, please note the following changes:
1 - Comments are now dofollow, so don’t hesitate to discuss. Don’t spam, though.
2 - A commercial/public use licence for the PSD will be available within a few days (Don’t worry, PSD will still be downloadables for free!)

Well, that’s all for today, so, see you tomorrow for a complete Website layout tutorial!

Show Some Love
Thank you for your support

    Cool! “A commercial/public use licence for the PSD will be available within a few days (Don’t worry, PSD will still be downloadables for free!)” - This is the best thing! Great work buddy! Subscribing!

  • Jean-Baptiste Jung

    @myfr3ak: Yes, I think I had a good idea with the licence, because the PSD files are still free for learning purpose, but now people can also use them for a cheap price. I have received a few emails of readers who were happy about the licence, so glad to count you in :)
