This post is for all those people who have any interest in photoshop (Read : photoshop beginners) .I still remember when I first started practicing photoshop some months ago, it was really difficult for me to find info such as tutorial, inspiration and resources, especially for beginners who don’t have much experience in it.Working with Photoshop can be quite time consuming for both beginners and advanced users. Once you’ve worked with it for a while, you begin to find that you’re constantly going back and forth between the same menu items or palette buttons. If you’re anything like me, you’re switching tools so often that most of your time spent in Photoshop isn’t even on the photo — it’s messing with the vast array of editing tools. Fortunately with the plethora of help online it wont be as difficult as it seems.
That’s why I did this little roundup for you and hopefully it will benefit you right at the beginning of your design career :). Well, these 5 sites were of great help to me , and i hope that hey help you too .
