10 of the Best PhotoShop Tutorials Created In January

Its that time again for our monthly series that showcase the best PhotoShop Tutorials created each month. Instead of listing all tutorials created each month as some sites do, we only share those we feel are the best, our favorites, or will be useful for most of our readers. If you missed last month’s showcase, check it out here.

This month’s creations were great and I had a hard time selecting just ten of them. So instead of listing some of those insanely difficult but incredible tutorials, I decided to focus mostly on beginner and intermediate levels of PhotoShop knowledge.
