  1. I do generally like these lists, but I think I’ve seen different variations of the same posts alot in the design community these past few months, and now we’re making lists of lists!?

    I’m ready to start seeing some new fresh content, not just reposts of other peoples’ lists.

    1. Fresh content is for sure a useful thing, but sometimes designers would like to have a place where they can find only the best content sorted out in one post instead of wasting their time searching.

  2. Great post. Love it! Only problem, if I can call it a problem, is that I might lose my PS skills with all these wonderful click-of-a-button actions.

  3. Great! Wow!

    You did a post some time ago on using Gimp. Gimp claims to be capable of the same stuff as Photoshop. From what I have seen, it seems that Gimp is nowhere near as powerful as Photoshop. Would you agree?

    Thanks for making available so many great graphic design and web development tips/tools!

    Cheers,

    Jeromy

  4. This is the greatest Photoshop roundup ever . . . .I’ve already opened about 20 tabs and I can’t stop . . . thanx for this infinite amount of resources

  5. Wait for it… Wait for it… WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    I think by the time, i finish doing all the above tuts, i’d become a professional designer… This is like the entire career in a nutshell.. thanx a lot

  6. i love your art work they are lovely, pls i would like to be tutorted in idea on how to carryout all these effects. pls send me the cost for training and the tools needed eg. the price for software, laptop and other things.thank you. pls send it to my email box so that i know where to proceed from.

  7. Your sites posts always amaze me. I can’t imagine how much time it took to do all of this research!

    I specially enjoyed the “17 Productive Photoshop Cheatsheets and Reference Cards to Download for Free”. I already got this and have been using it a ton. I just wanted to come back and thank you for the share!

  8. For some reason my other comment was deleted.

    I wanted to thank you for your share of the “17 Productive Photoshop Cheatsheets and Reference Cards to Download for Free”.

    I’ve already gotten a TON of use out of this and wanted to come back and show my appreciation.

  9. Thanks for the Photoshop tutorials posted in here. I always wanted to find a list of tutorials that I can follow in order to progressively begin to learn to use Photoshop. I have learned some things in the past but I haven’t used it in a while so I need to start from a beginner’s perspective. Thanks for the help.

  10. Thank you! Your own good taste shines through.. so much so that I actually decided to give you my real email! keep the bar high and we all win! ;)

  11. This collection encourages me to follow their tutorials to create photo manipulated images using some of my pictures. Some are good for display and some are to scare friends.
