Photoshop tutorial thumbnails

I simply love the wonderful resulting effects of applying Photoshop on photos! The little photo effects that I know is enough to amaze and blow me over, as well as prod me to continue seeking and learning online! Thus, I have documented some tutorials of photo effects that I’ve learnt less I forget, as well as to share them herein with all like-minded people who are also searching and thirsting….!

For ease of viewing collectively all the photoshop tutorials available in this site, appended below are the thumbnails of those with photo effects, using Photoshop.

Tutorials from August 2008 onwards are presented, using Photoshop CS3 on Mac whereas prior to that, I had used Photoshop CS2 on a Window-based personal computer. Windows users just need to remember that Mac’s keyboard keys Command (Cmd) and Option/Alt (Option) mentioned in the tutorials are the same as Window’s keys Ctrl and Alt respectively.
