The tutorials are awesome. I look forward in implementing as much as I can. Question: These Tool presets are only valid for CS5 and up, correct? Would it be possible to get the scale brush that could work with older versions? Specifically CS4? That is the one I liked the most :) Thank you for all the hard work!

I don't know if there is a way to make tool presets work for older versions.  That's something you'll have to look into.  Let me know if you're successful.
I have heard that if we are to use paypal we need to make sure to not have our physical address selected if the package is digital. Is this correct as far as your payment is concerned? Because I don't get the option for 'no address needed' and my understanding is that you might get in trouble if we have a physical address included.

I think thats only when you are sending money, when buying stuff from a storefront you should be okay.
