12 Best Photoshop video tutorials I ever saw

October 4, 2007

I'm always find a new way to do things in Adobe Photoshop, but rather than reading those Photosop tutorials, watching it in videos is a lot for fun and easier to understand. I have checked my bookmarks and found these video tutorials.

These guys from watchandlaernphotoshop are cool people, their video tutorials are easy to understand, here they are :

  1. Warping Text with Smart Object
    There are many ways to warp text in Photoshop, but most of them have their limitations. Some methods allow you to edit your text after warping, but don’t provide full customization of HOW you warp the text. Other methods allow full customization but don’t allow you to edit the text afterwards. In this tutorial, Geoff Riggs will show you a method for warping text that will give you the best of both worlds.
