Updating this site

March 25, 2017

As some of you can see, I have been gradually updating this site and adding many of my kits free of charge for personal use only. Some of the kits are flawed with regard to consistent sizing and some of the older ones may have elements with rough edges or blurred elements. Again, these are free for your personal use. If you have experience in PSP or PS, you should be able to adjust them if you wish.
