20 Free Romantic and Vintage Graphics



Hello everyone! I have a wonderful digital graphic resource to share with you all today called Graphic Stock. It's an awesome HUGE DATABASE of digital graphics! You can find seamless wallpaper backgrounds, textures, beautiful graphics, stock images, and more, all royalty free- basically a designer's dream!

I'm sharing some of my personal favorites in today's post. To download the ones in this collection, you will have to sign up for a 7 Day Totally Free Trial, where you can download up to 20 images a day. If you don't want to be enrolled in the paid "unlimited download" membership, simply cancel before your seven day trial is up.

To start your seven day free trial, go HERE

The above graphics can be located and downloaded by following the corresponding numbers on the image, with the ones in the list of links below:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Again, if you do not want to use it past the free trial, PLEASE cancel your subscription so you won't have to pay for the membership. 

ALSO, Graphic Stock is so awesome, that they want to give one of you a free 6 Month Membership. All you have to do is sign up using either the very top 3 links, or this one HERE.

Most of the images on Graphic Stock come in a rastorized format, which means the they don't come in separate layers. So I am going to show you how to transform them into transparent digital graphics for your digital designing, using BOTH Photoshop & Pixlr. Pixlr is a free Photoshop alternative, and offers almost all of the same editing tools. The below steps are performed in Pixlr, but you can do the same steps, with the same tools in Photoshop.

After downloading your images from Graphic Stock in PNG or JPG format, open your image up in Pixlr.com



If there are multiple graphics on the image, you need to isolate the graphic you want to use. Using the Lasso Tool, draw around your selection. Press Ctr C to copy it.


To create a new document, go to FILE->New IMAGE. Press Ctrl V to paste it into your new document.


To get rid of the white in your image, use the magic wand tool with "CONTIGUOUS" unchecked and give it a Tolerance of 1. Having Contiguous unchecked will ensure that all the white in the whole layer is selected, and having the Tolerance be so low will effect how "picky" the selection is when it comes to pixels with the exact same properties. 


Now you can use the graphic however you want, pasting it on top of backgrounds, or making a card template, designing your website, branding and more!  While these graphics are royalty free, please make sure to conform to their terms of use, found HERE.

    1. I'm sorry Lu, according to my agreement with them, this is the only way I can share these graphics with my readers. Do you have a debit card? <3

    2. Lu you can go to any walgreens, grocery store, etc and get a pre-paid MasterCard with GreenDot (check out GreenDot.com for info) and a money pak every time you want to put money on it and use it exactly like a credit card.

  2. I just stumbled onto your blog via Pinterest. You are amazing! I've looked for someone like you (ie someone who posts tutorials with simple instructions AND pictures by step) who also loves photos, graphics and (many many many) fonts all combined! I digitally edit LOTS (read thousands) of photos for small books, slideshows, etc and I need new inspiration. You have given it to me. Thank you so much! I have been putting a photobook of mine and my siblings and our kids and now grandkids together for about 5 years. It starts with my grandparents and some of their growing up history then my parents and so on. That means I'm starting in about 1910 (I'm 53). Im including pictures of documents, personal items, and writing the history and stories into the book too. I say book, we're up to 3 books now I think. I'm hoping to finish this year but I don't know. Anyway, thanks so much, thank you and your husband for your service and God bless

  6. Hello. First of all, I love your site! This is everything that I have looked for.
    I have one question, I followed everything you have stated in this post (downloading the graphics, editing in pixlr, using the magic wand). I then saved the image as jpeg file. I tried using it on picmonkey as an overlay but the white on the background is still there, it didn't come out as transparent.I sthere a way to make it transparent?

    1. You have to save it as a PNG image, not JEPG in order for it to be transparent. Hope that helps! XO

  9. How do you download from the website after signing up? I clicked on the JPG/PNG buttons, but there's no way to actually download. By clicking those buttons, the image just opens as a picture and doesn't give me an option to save or download anything.

  10. They should download when you click the buttons. Could it be that you didn't set up an account yet, or that your antivirus is preventing downloads? Hope that helps! :)

    1. Either use the eraser, fill in with the paint brush tool, or you can always use the lasso tool to select and delete it. Hope that helps! :)
