It’s the middle of November and so its time to start sharing more monthly Photoshop tutorial collections. Over the last few months I have been busy with an old job, new job with lots travel and now new health issues. With everything going on, I haven’t have time or the energy to work the Photoshop tutorial collections. Over those last few months, I have wanted to get back to the Photoshop collections.
So I have decided to start back on the Photoshop tutorial collections. Since going back to February tutorials isn’t that easy to track down without combing through pages of tutorial sites, I have started back in September and will post articles until have I caught up. Unfortunately, since there are missing months, Evolutionary Designs will probably not feature a best of Photoshop tutorials of 2014 this year.
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!
