New Photoshop Tricks Tutorial

WDVL has a new tutorial for Photoshop 6: Photoshop 6 Down and Dirty Tricks, by Scott Kelby, Editor of Photoshop User magazine and author of the book by the same name (New Riders, Publishers) Photoshop 6 Down and Dirty Tricks. This multi-page tutorial provides step-by-step detail with image samples for chrome metal effects and arched cut-out text. In the process, the tutorial leads through many aspects of Photoshop that can help with other work you may do, too.

If you’re new to Photoshop you can follow all the details. If you’re a seasoned veteran, you can breeze right through for some new ideas.

For more resources on Photoshop, check out the Graphics Archives here and’s Graphics: Adobe Photoshop section.
