It’s the start of the new year and what better way to kick off the year as with another monthly Photoshop tutorial collection. We are still a little behind on last years monthly monthly Photoshop Tutorial collection. I wanted to share another month’s collection to help get us back on track for our yearly best of collection. Hopefully, next week I will be able to create another collection as well. With that being said, I hope to post Novemember’s, Decemembers, January, and the end of year rap up.
As with previous collections, we look for only the best Photoshop tutorials created each month. Not just a large collection of all the tutorials created during the month. There are plenty of other design sites doing that. At Evolutionary Designs, we choose to share only articles that are helpful to our readers or just plain cool.
If you are a Photoshop tutorial writer, start commenting on these articles so we can find your awesome tutorials, if they are what our readers are looking for, then we will share your articles. If you are looking for a place to create killer tutorials, we are excepting guest writers and staff writers to submit articles for publications. Please contact us for details!
