Photoshop and Lightroom Creative CloudIt’s the start of the new year so its time to share last December’s Photoshop Tutorials.

But we will get to the tutorials in the minute. Since it’s the new year its time to talk about what Evolutionary Designs has planned for the new year.

Our plan is to continue to collect new Photoshop Tutorials created each much as for long as there is a need for them. We also plan to add more articles and new reoccurring articles. I haven’t figured out what articles will be featured but I have a few ideas.

I might add more tutorial collections, I might add more WordPress reviews, or might share more premium/free resources each month but right now, I am still in the research mode to see if these tutorials will be something the readers are looking for and want.

For now, here is December’s collection of Photoshop tutorials. Enjoy!

The Photoshop Tutorial Collections

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 publication. Please contact us for details!
