Adobe Photoshop Tutorials

Updated on August 29, 2008

Photoshop Tutorials

If you're into Photoshop, you know it can be really tough to learn. Thankfully the internet has a whole bunch of Photoshop Tutorials out there to find. Honestly, I look for as many as I can because there is always a new technique to learn.

Another reason why I'm always seeking out different Photoshop Tutorials is that Photoshop is always evolving. With every new version there are new things you can do with it, or even new and easier ways to do old things. So it's always worth it to keep searching out as many Photoshop Tutorials as you can.

Currently I'm using Photoshop CS3 - that's the latest version at the time I have written this. They added such cool new features to it such as:

  • A whole new toolbar layout
  • Brand new multi-level Curve adjustments
  • A cool new Quick Selection tool
  • Support for 3-D objects!

and of course a whole bunch more that this little hubpage couldn't possibly cover.

The best way to find some good Photoshop Tutorials is to have an idea what you want to look for. Once you have an idea, then just use good ol' Google and search for it. The more specific you can be, the better. For example, instead of just typing in Photoshop Tutorials and hoping that the results you find have the tutorial you're looking for, try typing in exactly it is that you're trying to do. If you want to learn how to use the Clipping Mask function, for example, try typing in Clipping Mask Tutorial. That way the results you get will more likely be what you're looking for and you don't have to waste time searching endless websites for the tutorial you need.

You can also use the first method I mention to find some other good Photoshop Tutorials. If you find a site that has a tutorial you're looking for and you really liked the way it was written, then check out the rest of that site. Chances are it'll have more tutorials than just the one. I like to bookmark good sites that I find for later use. This way I can refer back to them in case I need to look for something else. So for example, if I was looking for a particular Photoshop Tutorial and I found a site that had one that I wanted, I would go to the main site and see if they had any more. Then I would bookmark it and check back to the site the next time I was looking for something. It's good to keep a bunch of bookmarks for different tutorial sites as they all have different content.

The last method to finding some good Photoshop Tutorials would be to check out a bookstore like Amazon. They offer plenty of books on Photoshop if you're willing to spend the money. Sometimes you can even take a look at a few of the pages before you buy it to get a sneak peak and see if you like it. I found a really cool book on making photo montages called "How to Cheat in Photoshop CS3" that way. Amazon is a great place for that. They even have a "Photoshop Bookstore" where they have a whole section of the site devoted to Photoshop Books.

Well I hope that this little hubpage was helpful to better informing you about Photoshop Tutorials. I'll continue to post some more advice when I have it. I'll also try and put some links to some good tutorials and books that I find as well. Best of luck!
