I LOVE the effect, but the gimmick is poorly made - the first time I went to change photos, the ink
stuck and ruined the gimmick and the first photo. I understand they're going to "make good" on
this... I hope so. Otherwise - GENIUS! I had to IMMEDIATELY buy a miniature invisible deck!

Just got mine yesterday. One word: "disappointed".
I have to say that it's just an ok tirck
which is worth rate 3 of 5. The reason I give 2 stars is that it has wonderful description and great
trailer (I mean coin into photo effect.) to make it look worth 7 or 8 stars, but truth is it gets
In this DVD, you won't see any "real" audience and real reaction. The gimmick and
method are not bad but also not good enough. Audience won't believe you and they can easily figure
out how the trick works because during the most time what the audience see is the blank back of the
photo. I think it's the reason why they didn't use real audience.
I won't buy any SM stuff
while both of corner and photoshop disappoint me. You can cheat money from us once, twice but not
forever. We are not fool.

The DVD is great, the effects are VERY GOOD! Very practical and easy to do. Did two of the effects
in a party earlier, rocks! I'll be using this ALL THE TIME.
The gimmick is well designed. I
had some problem with the gimmick too, it's not broken or anything. They must have stored this in a
hot place. With nail polish remover, I 'clean' up the gimmick in seconds.
All in all, GREAT
BUY! Simple and strong. I like it!

When I received my Photoshop I was amazed at how quickly I became comfortable with its application.
The gimmick is so simple to use.(except the time to reset) I just wish it included more gimmicks so
I could repeat the trick with different objects without having to reset. I'll be buying replacement
packs just to get the gimmicks (unless the gimmick becomes available separately)DVD could be more
detailed. Four stars because I miss the additional gimmicks.

i did not like this trick at all, out of the box it had defects and the photos were all faded, not
practical at all and will never be performing this... your dog would prolly notice the effect!

PhotoShop complete is a simple to learn very easy to execute effect that plays huge to laymen. I
especially like the balloon handlings included in the complete package, it floors even my jaded
'test' audience (thx mom,dad,wife,coworkers lol).
My only issue with this is the gimmick
provided came damaged. It's not so damaged that u can't use it, and it can be cleaned w a little
lighter fluid n a q-tip. However, the photo supplied is ruined right out of the box. This is the
reason for the 4 stars.
[Update from Penguin Staff: This was a manufacturer error, and
we're replacing everyone's first edition "Photoshop" with brand new gimmicks]
utility device limited only by your imagination.

This is a great effect if you can perform well. All you have to do is believe that the magic is
happening and your audience will as well. My set came in slightly damaged and I notified Penguin.
They promptly told me that they were sending me a new set when they get the new batch in. I have
been a Penguin customer now for about ten years and I don't plan on going else where. They are the
best and have the best service. Thanks for always being there for us Penguin!!!

I am a 42 year old magician that does almost all family/kid/restaurant work. This routine packs a
powerful punch and the climax takes what little heat there might be and covers it with ice. I'm not
one that's big into complex handling and extreme sleight of hand, and this product allows me to
focus on the audience and not the handling. The only thing I will say is that I live in FL and was
disappointed that one of the pictures partially melted to the clear cover and I had to clean the
clear cover and get rid of that card. I had left the pic in the car, and was surprised to see that
happen. It happened to be the hershey kiss pic.... bummer... maybe they could put a different
finish on the pics or when you make your own, take the heat into account. The routine is great,
order the one with all the possibilities. It well worth it. I really like it because it packs small
and delivers BIG! Good magic is easy magic and this is GOOD MAGIC!!

The dvd itself is good. Will Tsai teaches the effect very thoroughly. However, for some of the add
on effects, he just showed the routine/explanation(there was no commentary for them). The trick
itself is easy to perform. The gimmick, though, is in my opinion poorly designed for the price of
this trick. However, as nice as penguin is, one of their online customer service representative
agreed to send me a new gimmick for this because the one I received with my order pretty much broke
right out of the box.
Other than the hassel, 5 stars.:)

Photoshop is an easy to learn, mostly self-working, impressive presentation. A bit of
sleight-of-hand is required but nothing too advanced. My only complaint is that it only comes with
one gimmick and it has been next to impossible to obtain additional gimmicks so as not to have to
reset between different presentations. Well worth the price. A crowd pleaser!
