We've put together some really helpful Photoshop tutorials that will definitely step up your design game. These tutorials are for those of you who already have a good understanding of the basics in Photoshop. If you are new to using Photoshop, check out our Beginners Photoshop Tutorial Roundup for videos to help you with the basics.
In the beginners tutorials, we showed you how to remove a background using a combination of easy to use tools. While it's easy to remove a background using the magic wand, it isn't always super accurate. Learning to use the pen tool is a great skill to add to your design toolbox. It can be a bit hard to get used to, but it gives you the most amount of control over what is selected.
Using gradients in Photoshop is an easy way to create a fade effect. Unfortunately, gradients don’t translate well when it comes to printing. We suggest you learn how to create halftone patterns if your design requires a fade effect. It takes some practice to use this correctly, so play around with it!
This design effect can be seen on posters, album covers, t-shirts, and more. It’s very popular at the moment and can turn photographs into amazing digital art. This is just a great design skill to have. It can be a lot of fun to play around with and work into your designs. The tutorial goes by pretty quickly. I suggest doing the steps along with the video, and pausing between tasks.
There are a few ways to accomplish this. This tutorial shows a technique that provides a playful hand-drawn look. You can use this technique for people, animals, objects, and whatever else you can think of.
