  1. Thanks for the feature James!

  2. James,

    I was so busy oohing and aahing and leaving feedback on, I almost forgot to comment here!

    I love these showcased tutorial screen shots. I have PS 6.0, and most of the tutes no longer apply to it.

    Still, picking up bits from sites like these give me a greater appreciation for the venerable old monster.
