You might like to use a fairly large image for this tutorial. If you haven’t got one at hand, you can use this one or this one. I got both from stock x change.

This tutorial also explains how to use actions. If the tab isn’t already open, you can find it by going to window – actions.
If you’re not interested in creating actions, you can skip that part and go to Step 1.2 Color enhancing.

I think it was helpful, but you could have explained things better.
It was well-structured, so I could easily skip the steps I didn't need.

2. The written tutorial shows one way only
3. Keyboard shortcuts are in the brackets
4. Click links to see screenshots (done this way to prevent people with slow connections from going nuts.) *winks*

The first clip is relatively slow in pace, but the second one isn’t. And something went wonky with the plug of my mic, too, so the sound gets worse and worse towards the end. I’m very, very sorry about this. I still don’t know how to fix that kind of things, but I’m working on it.
If you have any questions concerning the tutorial, please feel free to drop a comment here. I’ll try to help you out to the best of my abilities.
For those of you who might have trouble with curves in photoshp, you might like to check out this curves tutorial (which I didn’t make). It explains things very well, imo. Better than I ever could.

This is one of the funniest and most creative clips I've seen at youtube in a quite a while.
If you're at least a little geekish, you might find something to laugh about here, too.

I really thought long and hard about whether to post this tutorial or not.
The narration and sound are both miserable, despite the fact that I worked on it two nights straight! Yes. It will definitely provide some fodder for bashing, and the miserable quality merits all that.
So why do I post it?
Because I don’t feel like typing this all out after having spent so much time on it already because I have already completed it.

Special thanks to brit81, who asked me lots of questions about fancy brushes! =D

How to use curves

This is a tutorial I would like to share with you. I didn't make it, so no thanks to me, hehe.
All in all, I think it explains the basics of using curves very well, so it's definitely worth sharing, imo.

Have fun! =D

snaking text #2, tweening, grids, tweening

divacita was curious as to how I made
(from this batch.)

So I’ll show you how it’s done.
I’ve seen a tutorial very similar to this one before myself, but I can’t find it anymore. And besides: It can hardly do any harm to have two similar tuts around, ne?

Off we go, then.

Tutorial aspects today:

[x] snaking text take 2
[x] tweaking grids
[x] tweening
[x] keyboard shortcuts

Difficulty: simple
Software: Photoshop CS3 and earlier. Translatable.

Shortcuts are in the brackets
