Adobe Photoshop Tutorials – Best Of

Advertisement

When it comes to graphic design, Adobe Photoshop is usually the first option to consider. However, the software itself is a quite tough nut to crack — and definitely extremely hard to master. For instance, the concepts are not always intuitive and it’s not always clear when to use what tool and how to use it effectively. In fact, in Photoshop it usually takes pretty much time to achieve something you have never done before.

However, you don’t need to muddle through numerous Photoshop features and extensions for every design problem. You can use professional suggestions instead, e.g. professional step-by-step tutorials which provide excellent results and thus can save you a lot of time.

One year ago we’ve presented a hand-picked collection of Photoshop tutorials1. Now it’s time for a fresh portion of healthy Photoshop learning material. This article provides professional Adobe Photoshop tutorials which can enrich your design skills and improve the quality of your works. Although the authors of the tutorials rarely provide the information about the used version, we tried to pick only those tutorials that can be used with both CS 3 and older versions of Adobe Photoshop.

  61. 64

    Thanks thanks THANKS!!!!!

  62. 65

    Do one with Illustrator please, as many of these tutorials (especially the product mock-up one) would have been better off done in Illustrator because of the superior verctor format. I cringed when I saw the pixelated arrows, that was more awkward than anything else.

    Otherwise, this has been mighty inspirational, great work. :3

  63. 66

    Very GREAT post. !!!!!! Thnaks, thanks, thanks!!!!!!!!

    for me to be able to put my own creative spirit into the drivers seat of photoshop
    and explore what I can create. I have always done illustrations with Airbrush,Ink,
    Paint and Pencils. You have real top quality works of art here. Thank you for
    putting your tutorials online.

    Hi,
    all your lists with images plus description suffer of a problem of readability, after a bit of scrolling is difficult to say at a glance which description belongs to which image.
    I think a simple 1px line could solve the problem.

  113. 116

    Hi. I’m wanting to learn web design. Can I use pgotoshop elements instead of the real thing and still do these tutorials?

    Thank you for putting all these tutorials up.
    My goal is to create designs and websites like,
    2Advanced, Wa007, UncommondThinking, BillyBussey and many others.
    Trying to create high impact dynamic websites with outstanding wow effect.
    I like the Flamming Hair, 3D Ice Cube and Glossy-Style Carbon Fibre Navigation Set.
    there are a few others I love, but does not make sense taking up room as we all know…..lol

    I need to start learning how to take my designs like Menus and pictures and logos I create in Photoshop CS3 or CS4 and import them into Flash and use them in website Flash high dynamic site.
    Everyday I learn more and more about Photoshop, and its because of guys like you teaching us the right way.

    Thank you very much.

  168. 171

    This is an Incredible site! I can’t believe it. I found you because you are following me on Twitter.

    I was going to “remove” you because, judging by the “logo-instead-of-picture”, I figured either you were a commercial entity about to spam the crap out of me, or you were irrelavent to me. I decided to check out the website first, and I’m really glad I did! Just goes to show that….”You can’t always judge the book by the cover!”

    Kudos on the great resources you have consolidated under one very nicely designed roof! I’ll be back…. alot!

  169. 172

    I have been trying to place an order for your e-books but your internet page will not accept payment or accept my email address.

I need the basics to start with and if need will pay for an online course. Help?! Any suggestions. I’ve seen the manual for the CS3photoshop and know my head will spin if I try to make sense of that. Online, videos or_____? How do I get started? Thanks for your reply inadvance?!

    The Making of the Blues Singer tutorial was SPLENDID!!!!

    Complex and I think it’s beyond my artistic capabilities but damn, that was a great one :) It’s been ages since one of my tuts got featured on SM, hope I can make another one worth sharing here.

    Keep up the great work!
