Exclamation Tutorials for beginners - READ THIS!


Hello everyone,
I've compiled a short list of useful tutorials for beginners. Enjoy!

New to Photoshop -
1) "Photoshop basics video" by RaMarcus:
http://www.guildinn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=139

2) "Photoshop basics and quick tips" by RaMarcus:
Photoshop Basics and Quick Tips

3) "Absolute basics of tools in Photoshop" by Phantom69:
Absolute Basics of Tools in PS


Fundemental sig-making concepts -

1) "Lessons with Glass" by Glassbitch (depth, flow and lighting):
Lessons with Glass - depth, flow, lighting

2) "Text tutorial' by RaMarcus:
http://www.guildinn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1118

These tuts should set you on your way. They provide you with basic knowledge of the most important elements in sig making, such as depth and flow... Read some other tuts from the tutorial section (especially ones for beginners) to learn new techniques that will help you. Obviously as you progress you should go to more advanced tutorials.

If you have any further questions, or wish to receive more reccomendations for tuts, please don't hesitate to contact me or any other member of GI and we'll be glad to help you.

Enjoy your stay,
SalMAX.

Thanks LTP. Everyone's spamming it everywhere as well, so that's good.

Good idea, it keeps new people from having to search and search for basic tutorials.

But it sucks that we're missing the best one - Vinthians tutorial... why does every image he posted, no longer work?

Thanks HL. I did try and look for Vin's tut, but it wasn't there so... He might have deleted them or something, I don't know.

P.S If you think it's a good idea, how about a little donation to the author?

SalMAX.

Nope, he hosted them all on a private site (his apparently) and it seems that either the site had been closed or he deleted the files.
