It’s the end of the month and there are some new Photoshop Tutorials available to try out. There are plenty of design sites sharing monthly Photoshop lists, so instead of share everything created each month like everyone else, I thought I would share some of my favorites and ones that will be more useful for everyday users and those interested in learning Photoshop.
This month’s tutorials were good ones, but a lot of them were related to Easter and not so much on general tutorials. So I have compiled a list of my favorite tutorials that were created in April. All tutorials are for beginners through advanced. But most of these tutorials could be done at any level of knowledge of Photoshop. These tutorials include a few beginner level touch up tutorials, PSD theme tutorial, and the rest are photo manipulation tutorials.
If you are designer or Photoshop junkie and you like to create tutorials, we are always looking for tutorials and are looking for designers to write for us and share their work with us. If you know of any great sites for Photoshop tutorials, please comment and let us know. We are currently compiling a list of our favorite Photoshop Tutorial sites.
