After reading Koopa's Letter to the Community
thread I was somewhat inspired to do this.
I know that there are a lot of threads that feature tutorials on how to do and create certain things in Photoshop, but to my knowledge there is nothing else like this.
The Idea is really simple. See a cool tutorial/walkthrough or something that could be helpful to less experiences box artists? post the link to it here.
I thought it would be a good idea to have a sort of resource thread for helpful tutorials.
To try and help new members, or users who are new to photoshop.
Even tutorials on how to use Layers or how to navigate through the menu's as well as more advanced or more specific tutorials on how to create certain effects and text.
I'll start with a few helpful tutorials that I found for Photoshop beginners.
Getting Started With Photoshop
This tutorial on SitePoint, a popular site for web professionals, will guide you through the Photoshop fundamentals and the basic tools available at your disposal.
It’s an excellent jump-off point that will give you an understanding of what you’re up against.
The tutorial starts with a bird’s-eye view of Photoshop’s workspace to get the reader familiarized with the lay of the land. Then it goes on to cover essential concepts
such as saving files (and the various popular formats for the web), an introduction to shortcuts that all Photoshoppers should know, how to choose colors, and much more.
If you’re just starting out with Photoshop, you will no doubt be spending plenty of your time using the Tools panel, which contains various tools for working with
type, painting, drawing, moving objects, and so forth.
In this Photoshop tutorial, you will get a beginner’s overview of the various tools contained within the Tools panel.
From the selection tools to the retouching tools, you’ll learn all about them and their uses.
This is exactly what it says on the tin, a walkthrough of the different filters that are available in photoshop and how to use them.
It's in depth and shows you how they work and how to use them properly, as well as how to navigate through the menu's
An Introduction to the Typing Tool
Whether you want to add a text caption on a photograph, lay out a brochure’s copy, or create your typographical poster masterpiece, the tool that will help
you get the work accomplished is the humble, but powerful, Type tool.
Creating text layers, resizing and modifying text, and adjusting text characteristics, such as tracking and line-height, are a few of the topics covered in this tutorial.
Installing and Managing Brushes
If you’d like to speed up your workflow and extend Photoshop, it’s best to understand how to manage presets. This tutorial specifically covers installing and managing
Photoshop brushes, but will also get you started into exploring various other presets such as patterns, custom shapes, and so forth.
If you find any that you feel would be helpful or just ones that you find particularly interesting, just add them to the thread.
Also, if this could be made a sticky I would really appreciate it.
