    i think maybe SM should have cut it down to the top 15 or so. i’ve seen many of these before. and some of them aren’t good. although there were some stand outs: abduzeedo’s sexy colors poster, the alphabet typography poster (with the typewriter), and the screen printing gig poster to name a few.

    respectfully I don’t think this posters tutorials are amazing.
    Actually, most of them look like they were not made by a graphic designer.
    They are just formulas to impress beginners with textures, reflections, splash and splatters…..

    Not impressive at all, only a few gems in this bunch. Almost all are overdone and typographically insulting.

    Granted, Photoshop pros or those with a fair amount of skill in using the software may find some of these tutorials a bit naive or plain boring. However, for many, I’m sure, these tutorials can be an excellent means to learn the ropes and get to know about unleashing the true power of Photoshop. And that’s where the value of such posts really lie.

    I work in advertising and seriously, none of these ad tutorials would of made the cut. they are unprofessional, and too engrossed with eyecandy and photoshop brushes for any client to approve.

    I see the “Designing a Portable Gaming Device Poster” twice in your list.

    Why are you giving the photoshoplady extra love ?
    Love is in the air ?

    BTW, nice collection SM.

    To all the people with negative remarks, especially #41 by Peter, keep at it.
    I heard SM are collecting all your negative remarks with names to make a “Virtual Insanity” poster out of it.
